About

“Like a shark attack with t-shirts in the back” Nick Flora belts with faux hubris in "Presence Of Greatness" the opening track from his sophomore release Hello Stranger. But like all good uses of hyperbole, there is some truth to the claim. Hailing from Nashville, TN, the alterna-pop singer/songwriter is known for many things: weaving humor with heart in songs that cut to the core of the human condition, crafting a live performance that’s altogether intimate and unforgettable, and cultivating an online community of fans that have come to expect the unexpected. Flora has been writing songs and touring with bands for close to a decade. He stepped out on his own in 2008 releasing his debut solo record Great Escape (2009) and the aforementioned follow-up Hello Stranger (2011); both prime examples of Flora’s grasp of dynamics, heart, and the tongue-in-cheek. Flora’s latest release The Reintroduction Of Nick Flora boasts a bold step forward with a record full of anthems, stories, heartache, and of course, wit. "Fearless simplicity" seems to be Flora's modus operandi these days as he teams up with longtime producer Andrew Osenga (Caedmon's Call, JJ Heller, Jon Troast) for the third installment into the Nick Flora canon. "We asked ourselves what side of me have people not experienced and what would surprise old fans and interest new ones to taking a peek inside, then we got to work" Flora states about working with Osenga in the studio for The Reintroduction. "The ability to surprise people and yourself with what you're able to accomplish is something that never gets old. I love shattering expectation, painting myself into a corner then finding a side exit to get out. It keeps people interested and engaged, keeps it fun." Between full length recordings, Flora released a trilogy of movie themed cover EPs entitled the Remake EPs for free on his website www.nickflora.com
