Music from the heart, for the heart.
Nicholas David is a vibrant, dynamic and multi-talented singer/songwriter from Saint Paul, MN. For more than a decade, Nicholas has composed alternative soul music that connects with people worldwide on a deeply human level. Prior to his unforgettable 2012 run with Team CeeLo on NBC’s The Voice, Nicholas had already recorded five critically acclaimed albums, experienced national radio airplay and participated in multiple charity and collaborative projects. Fans of The Voice were introduced to his soulful and storied career during this time where he struck a chord with America and finished a fan favorite in the top three.
Nicholas recently returned to The Voice as a guest artist to unveil his new original single, titled "Say Goodbye," and the eponymous EP. The response was astounding; within 24 hours the EP hit #1 on the iTunes Alternative Chart and #2 on the iTunes overall Top Album Chart. Minneapolis’ own Star-Tribune heralded the release as “versatile country soul.” Have a listen to "Say Goodbye" here: https://soundcloud.com/thefeelin/saygoodbye
Nicholas’ music is a fully integrative experience, incorporating multiple genres and influences ranging everywhere from Prince to Beethoven. His powerful voice, enriching lyrics and liquid piano playing set him apart and are the reason Skope Magazine calls him “an authentic artist of this millennium.” His captivating melodies embody an unbridled passion for music, and his lyrics convey the thoughts of a truly humble, intelligent and genuine human being. When it comes to his iconic live shows, Nicholas is a one-of-a-kind and must-see act. As if channeling inspiration from an outside source, the instant he walks on stage he gives himself over to the music. Fans have even gone as far to speak of his performances as a spiritual service that they actually want to attend. His emotional approach to songwriting and performing is the very reason the thriving Twin Cities music scene affectionately nicknamed him ‘the feelin.’
Nicholas has always loved keeping things local, and this sentiment is evident throughout his music. Incorporating dozens of Minnesota musicians, his critically acclaimed 2009 album Together We're Stronger features local Minnesotans from over 40 different bands. Nicholas also played a role in the hugely successful charity album, The Minnesota Beatle Project, named "Best Local Compilation CD" by the City Pages. His rendition of The Beatles classic “Across the Universe” was in extended heavy rotation on 89.3, "The Current." To date, the project raised over $50,000 to help keep music programs alive in Minnesota Public Schools. Nicholas also appeared on The Minnesota Beatle Project Vol. 3 in collaboration with local legend Charlie Parr on "Rocky Raccoon".
Nicholas has continued to use music as a vehicle for positive change. He has made it a priority in between touring to give back to the children. To give back to the future. From charities that fill backpack's with food for the summer months, because the only food they have is the food that's provided for them at school. To a place for families to grieve and process the death of their child. From coat drives during those cold Minnesota winters, to turning rock concerts into food drives. After a recent trip to Mexico with Smile Network International, Nicholas was named their "Ambassador of Love". Smile Network International is a local non-profit humanitarian organization which provides life altering surgeries for children and adults in developing nations. Nicholas is constantly searching for ways to not only speak the language of the heart, but to LIVE it as well.
Nicholas and his own Label, Wake the World, are among an emerging group of Conscious-Capitalists and Eco-Entrepreneurs focused on minimizing environmental impact. All CD packaging and mailings feature "green" designs, utilizing recycled materials and FSC-certified products.
