Music From The Heart For The Heart 


A Soul Man Shaped By The Past, Forging A Path Of His Own Into The Future 

" A mix of the growl of DR. JOHN with the silk of MARVIN GAYE"  - Chicago Tribune                     

"Connected to a history that produced a DYLAN and a PRINCE,      NICHOLAS DAVID strangely remains a kindred spirit with soulful southern singers" - Martin Keller  

You can hear the nurturing root sounds of American R&B, New Orleans Rock 'n' Roll, Country-Driven Gospel and the Soul Music of the Spirit and the Church in Nicholas David aka the Feelin. And if you're really listening, you can hear how David is reshaping the music's past for the ever-present day. Welcome to the guy who magically turned the old school into the new school. 

"This guy sings beautifully. He is really talented, he looks like an eccentric old school watchmaker" - Howard Stern 

"Sometimes David can sound like he's channeling several musicians at once" - Christina Aguilera    

The soulful bearded songsmith known to the world in 2012 as he endured the intense scrutiny of hit-making judges and a major television audience during           "The Voice". Finishing third that year, his riveting performances and his unassuming personal proclamations about faith, family and music--readily set him apart from the pack. He had arrived. Or maybe the big audience and the affirmation of key media he deserved finally caught up to him. 

"Reinventing and evolving each song he sings, David gives songs deeply ingrained in pop culture something new and passionate with each performance" - City Pages 

"Nicholas David's wardrobe is show-stealing: his lavender shoes, pink suit flowing hair, blue blocker grandpa sunglasses, friendship bracelets, rings...." - Rolling Stone  

A Voice Beyond "The Voice". A  Top-Three Finish catapulted David from regional musician to international success. His recordings routinely charted on Top 10 lists for Billboard and iTunes. David and his Feelin Band toured coast to coast headlining and playing support bills with national acts ranging from the Avett Brothers to Rusted Root to the BoDeans to name a few. 

"David and his band exude a more in-the-moment authenticity that sends a clear signal this shit is for real" Glide Magazine 

"Nicholas the family man David and his cohorts plant profoundly deep roots" - Blues Rock Review 

On the road he crossed paths with Devon Allman to which an onstage jam led to an invitation to join the Devon Allman Project on 2018 -  2019  World Tour! Among many notable musicians David met during the 14-month-long-trek across the globe was guitarist and singer Samantha Fish.  That meeting led to an invitation to come to New Orleans and record David's latest release Yesterday's Gone. 

"Genre-blending everything from Blues & Soul to Hoodoo-Hinted Rock, these songs slip stealthily past your emotional defenses and melt your heart" - Rock & Blues Muse 

"A fix of soul-pop grooves" - Americana Highways 

" A blues/southern rock romp that roots fans will love. Genre splicing a little something for everyone into the mix, it's a record his live show is sure to sell as you'll want a little something of this around the house. Solid."                     -Midwest Record

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’ 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.’

Recommended for Fans of Dr. John, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, Elton John and Davina and the Vagabonds.
