Nik Freitas Biography
Growing up in Visaliaâan isolated, agricultural town between Fresno and Bakersfield in Californiaâs Central Valley--Nik Freitas found solace in skateboarding, photography, and, of course, music. A self-taught musician able to play guitar, bass, drums, and piano, Nik started recording on a 4-track in his teens--creating fully-realized, fleshed-out songs completely on his own. This early music combined dexterous musicianship and solid pop-craftsmanship with a disarming emotional innocence. From the start his talent was immensely evident, and now, after two exceptional records (2002's Hereâs Laughing at You and 2003's Heavy Mellow) and thousands of miles touring with his band the Head Gates, Nik has proven himself an accomplished and confident artist.
Nikâs music is steeped in classic, expansive pop records like David Bowieâs Hunky Dory or the Beatles' Let it Be, while also referencing more modern, indie rock records such as Built to Spill's There's Nothing Wrong with Love. Taking subtle cues from music's greats, both old and new, Nik cultivates a sturdy style that emphasizes the importance of melody and lyrics. His distinct voiceâat once both self-assured and world-wearyâinjects the songs with personality and passion. With such dedication to the craft, Nik Freitas channels his talent to become an inspired, engaging songwriter.
Nik currently resides in Los Angeles, CA playing solo and also with his band in and around the area.
"On his second album, Nik Freitas builds off the singer/songwriter approach that fueled his well recieved 2002 debut 'Here's Laughing at You'. At it's core 'Heavy Mellow is an easily Likable, thoughfully crafted disc of late-era Beatles inspired pop........ a vital album from start to finish."
three stars -ROLLING STONE
"Nik Freitas comes into his own, expanding on the instrumentation of his debut for a true-blue pop album that grafts the indie smarts of Quasi to 70's AM rock"
four stars -ALL MUSIC GUIDE
" A John Lennon songwriting vibe that is just unmistakable and timeless"
" The off-handed charm of Paul Mcarntney and Emitt Rhodes, and even at times a wistful John Lennon"
"Jangle pop that will leave listeners giddy with pleasure"
