Brooklyn based artist Nico Shihadeh made his 2020 debut with his single Wasting Bye. Blending deep Psychedelic and Indie Rock with keen Pop sensibilities and airy melodies, his biggest influences span from the likes of Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Shuggie Otis, and even Meatloaf.
A student of the legendary session player Vernon “Ice” Black, Nico was taken under wing for years where he was able to refine his musical prowess and confidence within the artistic landscape. Skilled Multi-instrumentalist, Writer, and Producer, Nico adopts the Bedroom Rock, DIY mentality. Often creating looser, low fi records, Nico likes to keep a minimalist approach and often credits his simplistic songwriting style to the likes of Motown and The British Invasion.
Of Palestinian decent, Nico was raised in the suburban landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up listening to the sounds of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s through a diverse household, his heart lies in the eclectic. A romantic for the classic eras of music, Nico’s biggest influence and idol is Prince.
At the age of 22 he left California in pursuit of a career in music, where he traveled the US alone, working festivals and living his life out of his car. He eventually landed in New York and is currently in the process of finishing his first full fledged album, and eagerly awaits the release of his next few singles in the coming months.
