Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, singer-songwriter Dan Nicholson spent years honing his craft in legendary NYC clubs like CBGB’s and The Bitter End. After relocating to Minneapolis, MN, he went on to secure his first gig headlining at 7th Street Entry.
Classical piano training in his youth began a lifelong love of music and songwriting. A self-taught guitarist, Nicholson played in several bands during high school, and at 19 he released the twelve-song LP Realer Than Real, playing all the instruments himself.
The next year, Nicholson’s song “Just To Get Close To You” caught the attention of the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame, and he was named “Best Unsigned Singer/Songwriter” and invited to perform at several industry showcases.
After relocating to Minnesota and marrying his wife Linda Carroll, Nicholson released The Minneapolis Years. Songs like “Coming Home” and “Goner” displayed some of Nicholson’s best songwriting to date.
His third LP, Betting On The Muse, released in 2013, shows ongoing mastery of songcraft and production technique, resulting in some of the finest performances of his career.
2014 brought the publication of a novel, Gloryheads, with a second work to follow at year’s end.
