Nic Earley is the artist we always needed to hear and he couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. He has the genuine “old school” sound that many aim for, with his use of pulsing rhythmic guitars, jazzy chord progressions and 80s pop synths. Originally from Covina, CA and now residing in Harlem, Earley’s sound is reverent to his old school R&B upbringing yet maintains a place in modern day music. With a warm, soulful voice and entrancing melodies teamed with vulnerable lyrics, his sense of authenticity is easily conveyed which makes it easy to feel his music. There’s no one like him at his age, and hasn’t been in a long time. Where everyone does the same thing, he brings something new to the music world by playing to the nostalgia of music lovers and fans alike.
