One must stay in his unique lyrical world long enough to get the true depth of his artistry.' - Will Sexton 'Nicholas Ginbey is a soulful singer-songwriter. Truly quirky and original. Because of this you may not get it your 1st couple of listens, but after acquiring a taste you will be a fan'- Gabe Rhodes (Grammy nominated guitar player) 'Nicholas is a fun, talented and writer and we have a great time playing together. His songs range from coarse rockers to sweet ballads all the time sounding like the REAL true Nick.' - Todd V.

As a songwriter my business is my emotions. So victories are incredibly rewarding and defeats are equally as disappointing, but during a growing process any artist must experience both. Yet no matter how much pain I have endured for my art, I have never thought twice or regretted my decision to pursue it; because it is what I love, and in essence you are what you love.
