NICK ANDERSON & THE SKINNY LOVERS
At the age of 17, Nick Anderson was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Unable to control his mind, his life became a loop of incessant thoughts and emotions that lead to a deep depression. It's this hardship that solidified his career in music. Unable to comprehend what was happening to him, he heard a song on the radio that explained exactly how he was feeling. It was this song, that made him realize the true power of music.
Nick Anderson, now 25, writes emotional lyrics that dig into the struggle of the millennial dreamer. What are we doing with our lives, is it okay to be different, is it okay to not be fine?
After the release of their first two EPs, Ephrem Pt. 1 & 2, Nick Anderson & The Skinny Lovers (NASL) partnered with Tinderbox Music in Minneapolis, MN. Their first radio promo landed them a number 1 chart position in Florida, and a number 8 position in North Carolina.
With the newly found radio audience, these songs and their deep emotional context made them a perfect fit for TV Networks like MTV, E!TV, NETFLIX. These networks, along with 10+ more, have licensed the ENTIRE NASL catalog.
These licenses opened many doors and ears of industry professionals. Phil Ehart of KANSAS even called NASL's song 24 'The Anthem of a Generation.' In 2018 NASL hit the road to play Red Gorilla Music Festival in Austin, TX during SXSW. They sold out prominent live music venue Handlebar.
In the coming months, the band is scheduled to tour with Sam Llanas (formerly of the BoDeans), play Concerts on the Square in Wausau, WI, and are currently booking an east coast tour.
