Nico Rivers / Bio

Fueled by a volatile blend of emotion, experience, imagination and intuition, Nico Rivers has been haunting the stage since his youth. After spending his childhood on the ghostly shores of Massachusetts, Rivers packed his car full of guitars and a few sentimental possessions and turned his boots west.

After wandering back and forth across the United States a few times, he planted new roots in Los Angeles in 2009 when he formed the group Pine Mountain Casket. For the next couple of years, The Casket stamped their footprints throughout Southern California with a unique taste of Americana, Blues and Indie Rock before going their separate ways in late 2011.

When the dust had cleared, Nico quickly set to work on his first solo EP, Thicker Than Water, which was released in March 2012. After the release, Rivers hit the road as a one-man band, playing up to four instruments at once. While on tour, he began to fall in love with his new, stripped-down set up.

In the midst of touring, Nico visited his friend, Jorge Naboa, at SAE Studios in Hollywood, CA, where they cut his second EP, To The Bone. This time around, Nico wanted to capture the raw emotion of his new setup, so they tracked the EP live. To The Bone is set to release in March 2013, followed by a tour of the US and Europe.
