Classically trained, and with a reputation as one of the world's best selling flutists, Nicholas Gunn is in the upper echelon of contemporary instrumentalists. Having released over thirteen solo projects and selling over two million copies he is a double platinum artist.
Having been born in England, Nicholas studied at Great Britain’s prestigious Royal School of Music. In the early nineties, Gunns' albums titled "The Sacred Fire” and "The Music of the Grand Canyon" were released and became best sellers at national retail chains such as Natural Wonders and the Nature Company. Nicholas’ subsequent albums each became highly successful, going straight to the Billboard New Age charts where they maintained success for many years. With his music featured on more than one hundred compilation albums and serving as high fidelity presentation music for the speaker company Bose Audio, Mercedes Benz, and Chrysler Corporations to name a few, Nicholas continues to be an innovative and highly respected musician of high caliber. A level of respect has been obtained through his consistent awareness of nature and through the thousands of dollars donated to our National Parks through his music sales. Appearances on multiple morning news shows across America and on the NPR syndicated show "Echoes” led him to be recognized as "The Flutist of the Forest” in a New York Times crossword puzzle. "It’s interesting now to look back at my musical training and see how it came to serve me well in understanding many aspects of the music industry. By learning two of music’s basic elements, rhythm through percussion and melody through flute, it gave me a solid foundation for understanding music’s basic form” explains Gunn. It was also in these early years that Nicholas began to build his own recording studio, learning production techniques and music engineering, and gained an understanding of music marketing, giving him the foundation for becoming a well rounded musician! "I look forward to the release of "Thirty-One Nights" and believe I am just beginning to find my stride."
