About this event
“A mix of the growl of Dr. John with the Silk of Marvin Gaye” – Chicago Tribune
“Connected to a history that produced a Dylan and a Prince, Nicholas David strangely remains a kindred spirit with soulful southern singers “– Martin Keller
You can hear the nurturing root sounds of American R&B, New Orleans Rock ‘n’ Roll, Country Driven Gospel and the Soul Music of the Spirit and the church in Nicholas David (aka the Feelin). And if you’re really listening, you can hear how David is reshaping the music’s past for the ever-present day. Welcome to the guy who magically turned the old school into the new school.
“This guy sings beautifully. He is really talented; he looks like an eccentric old school watch maker” – Howard Stern
“Sometimes David can sound like he’s channeling several musicians at once” – Christina Aguilera
The soulful bearded songsmith became known to the world in 2012 as he endured the intense scrutiny of hit making judges and a major television audience during the Voice. Finishing 3rdthat year, his riveting performances and his unassuming personal proclamations about faith and family and music- readily set him apart from the pack.
He had arrived or maybe the big audience and the affirmation of key media he deserved finally caught up with him.
“Reinventing and evolving each song he sings; David gives songs deeply ingrained in pop culture something new and passionate with each performance” – City Pages
“Nicholas David’s wardrobe is show-stealing: His lavender shoes, pink suit, flowing hair, blue blocker grandpa sunglasses, friendship bracelets, rings…” – Rolling Stone
A voice beyond the Voice. A Top- Three finish catapulted David from regional musician to international success. His recordings routinely charted on Top 10 lists for Billboard and iTunes. David and his Feelin band toured coast to coast headlining and playing support bills with national acts ranging from the Avett Brothers to Rusted Root to the BoDeans to name a few.

“Nicholas the family man David and his cohorts plant profoundly deep roots” – Blues Rock Review
On the road he crossed paths with Devon Allman to which an onstage jam led to an invitation to join the Devon Allman Project on a 2018-2019 World Tour! Among many notable musicians David met during the 14-month long trek across the globe was guitarist and singer Samantha Fish. The meeting led to an invitation to come to New Orleans and record David’s latest release Yesterday’s Gone.

“A fix of soul-pop grooves” Americana Highways
“A blues/southern rock romp that roots fans will love. Genre- splicing a little something for everyone into the mix. It’s a record his live show is sure to sell you’ll want a little something of this around the house. Solid” – Midwest Record.
