Sam Nichol - alternative / folk music artist from Nashville, US.
Sam Nichol is a singer-songwriter hailing from Franklin, Tennessee. Sam’s musical career began early, as he started learning classical piano, from there he took up the trumpet and played that through a significant portion of his middle school and high school years. As a freshman in high school, Sam discovered guitar. He immediately fell in love with the way that he could create new and exciting chordal structures, and accompany himself in song. Writing seemed to be a natural next-step to his playing and he excelled in it quickly. It was not long before Sam realized that he wanted to pursue songwriting and performing professionally, so he began an education at Trevecca University as a Commercial Music major with an emphasis in guitar and songwriting.
His unique style finds it’s roots in Indie Folk/Americana, but also proudly exhibits his classical training and jazz influences. While his natural talent is evident, it didn't always come easy; Sam has spent a significant amount time honing his style and his skill into a palpable tone. Blending this writing style with his classical experience, his jazz influences, and his passion for unique commercial music, Sam created a refreshing style with insightful messages.
Sam has recently started to perform on guitar with established artists and is travelling with Andrew Greer, Cindy Morgan, and Ginny Owens. His talent has not gone unnoticed at Trevecca either; as he has been selected to participate in the first-ever songwriter incubator program where he will be exposed to a number of other established artists through co-writes and one-on-one meetings, and learn with professionals in the music industry. Samuel expects to graduate in May 2017.
