You may have heard us playing out A Train Through Spain and Captain from Nicholas DiNofrio – and we caught up with Nicholas to find out more about him.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a Junior at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland with aspirations to graduate and fly jets for the Navy.
I grew up in South Jersey on the beach, and I love all things beach.
When did you start to develop a passion for music?
I started taking drum lessons in 4th grade and continued to for 8 years, and I taught myself guitar in Middle School. Writing music became a way for me to express myself and create something that I am proud of.
What music did you listen to growing up?
Growing up, I listened to just about anything and everything; any artist ranging from Elton John to I Prevail to Lee Brice.
How would you describe your sound?
My music has a sound similar to that of Jack Johnson. It’s very beach-y and easy listening.
What music have you released to date?
My most release release is my 6 song EP “Your Smile” which was released in September 2020. Prior to that, I released another EP, “Espresso Feels”, in 2019 that was a collaboration.
What are you plans for the future?
In the future, I would really be a fan of collaborating with anyone who feels like I have something to offer. Although music isn’t my number one priority right now, as I am an undergraduate electrical engineer with plans to attend John’s Hopkins University to obtain a Master’s of Electrical Engineering and then go to Pensacola for Naval Flight School, I hope to one day be able to make a career through music or sound design or marketing.
Where can we find out more about you?
I am on Soundcloud and all streaming services.
