Nick Black is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable names in the pop/soul music scene. His highly entertaining live show experience features smooth vocals, soaring falsetto, and blazing guitar. Nick’s newest single “One Night Love” was released July 30th, 2018 to critical acclaim along with a neon-colored hula hoop extravaganza of a music video. Produced by Black and Memphis producer James Bennett, and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Brad Blackwood, “One Night Love” pushes Nick headlong into pop and funk territory. With hints of Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars having always been a staple of Nick’s music, they’ve truly come to the forefront of his sound in this new adventure.
Nick released his last album SUMMER + SPRING in 2017, featuring two music videos: one for the title track and one for “Joy to the Girl”. SUMMER + SPRING fused classic Memphis R&B with the spirit of new soul and funk coming out of the Bluff City.
He has been featured on “Muscle Shoals to Music Row”, a concert series filmed at legendary Fame Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, as well as on Americana and Roots channel DittyTV as one of their featured artists. Black won the 2015 Juneteenth awards for “Album of the Year” and “Band of the Year”, The Pioneer Award for “Most Promising Male Entertainer”. He also won the 2016 Blues Music Award for “Band of the Year” for his work with award-winning blues and boogie-woogie band Victor Wainwright & The WildRoots.
Nick will be touring nationally starting in February in support of his next single.
