Nicolas Bearde is a singer/songwriter, known for his “buttery baritone” and one of today’s premier male jazz vocalists. Born and raised in Nashville, but based in the Bay Area since the 1970’s, Nicolas has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences worldwide for his distinctive style and deeply imaginative interpretations. Unmistakably honest, and unpretentious, he takes a unique approach to time-tested standards and familiar jazz works with electrifying deliveries. With genre turns from jazz to soul to blues, he shows his versatility, while his engaging rapport captures and draws the audience into his performances. His latest release,Visions, is a vibrant, up-tempo and soulfully driven collection of jazz originals and standards which marks Nicolas’ 4th recording on the Right Groove Record label, and… if all goes, a Christmas EP in-the-making, will also be available for this holiday show.
