Recording artist, Nicolas Bearde, a seasoned and highly respected showman, has established himself as a powerful presence in the contemporary jazz vocal mileu over this past decade. His silky baritone sound invites comparisons to Johnny Hartman, Lou Rawls, and Joe Williams, and his wit and engaging rapport captures and draws the audience into his live performances.
For the past 30+ years, Nicolas has made major marks in the world of jazz as an original member of Bobby McFerrin’s innovative a cappella ensemble, “Voicestra”, while carving out his own distinctive solo career. With classic performances and innovative interpretations of jazz standards and blues – Nicolas is the definitive jazz romantic. He’ll steam you up with an original soulful song like Love Me, pull you into the nuanced emotion of a classic Bill Wither’s tune, Can We Pretend, or captivate you with a stirring rendition of Naima, a John Coltrane ballad.
