NICK BLACK, Memphis’ newest Soul artist is stepping out onto the music scene with a style that will force you to take notice. Take his modern soul voice, fold in his soulful string and horn arrangements, add an infusion of hip-hop and old school rhythm & blues, and you’ve got a sound that demands attention.
His newest album, THE SOUL DIARIES, released in October of 2012, is an amalgamation of music four years in the making. Beginning the album in college, he has steadily been recording and writing for this CD up to the current day. THE SOUL DIARIES is a collection of songs from three different EPs recorded by Nick, each song telling a story of his relationship with someone in his life.
While recording his album, he has joined fiery, up-and-coming blues recording artist Victor Wainwright as lead guitarist and background singer, officially one of the “WildRoots” in Wainwright’s band, Victor Wainwright & The WildRoots. Nick has toured nationally and internationally with Wainwright for the past two years, getting a real education in music after graduating from the University of Memphis with a degree in music business.
After releasing his album, Nick started up an IndieGoGo Fundraising campaign to have a physical CD Release Party in Memphis. After six weeks of fundraising, Nick reached almost $5000 of his $4000 goal, solidifying his plans to physically release his album, have a release party, and begin touring his music in mid 2013.
THE SOUL DIARIES is available on his website www.nickblackmusic.com, iTunes, Amazon, and most major streaming sources.
