Nicholas Charles Thompson, known in some circles as NCT or Nicky T traffics in various styles of singer/songwriter sounds in the genres of alternative, rock, pop, and even a folk infused ditty if you happen to catch him in the right mood on the right stage in his home turf of Manhattan’s own Lower East Side.
NCT has been a staple of New York City’s music scene since graduating NYU in 2007. He started lending his voice and songwriting skills to many projects throughout the city, while simultaneously sharpening his live performance chops at various venues in the city. His voice has been featured in various songs and his writing skills have sharpened a number of hooks of a diverse group of New York’s own artists in various genres, however, he has placed most of his focus on his solo moniker Nicholas Charles Thompson.
Nicholas Charles Thompson has released three singles in the last year while preparing for additional releases in the summer of 2014. NCT had his first real accolade when he was picked to be an artist in the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon for a Turnstyle Music Group Showcase at the Ella Lounge that year. The show drew even more attention to the artist who afterwards focused a lot on making sure he was creating a show for the needs of the fan. That focus grabbed the attention of many as he was picked for his second CMJ Music Marathon, playing as a headliner for the Turnstyle Music Group Series at the 2013 CMJ Music Marathon. This event is also sponsored by Grolsch beer in its #ChooseInteresting music twitter advertising campaign partnered with the Back to School Concert Series promoted by Turnstyle Music Group.
NCT is sometimes seen with various other New York musicians on stage in pop up performances around the city. Keep an ear to the ground as there is so much more to come from this strong writer and performer in the next few years as he surely expands his niche from the New York/Brooklyn/Long Island area to farther places.
