From Nick Brodeur
Nicholas "Nick" John Brodeur (b. August 4, 2000 in Long Island, New York) has musical passion running through his blood. His great aunt Jackie Lee broke through the UK Top Ten in 1968 with "White Horses" and sang on Jimi Hendrix's classic debut single, "Hey Joe." As early as six years old, Nick expressed interest in the electric guitar after seeing Metallica in concert for the first time. Within a week, Nick began professional vocal and guitar lessons on his Gibson Les Paul Classic.
Six years of rigorous one-on-one lessons later, Nick joined School of Rock in West Broward, Florida, where he met fellow young rockers and started his career as a live performer. Nick and his family moved from Fort Lauderdale to Orange County, California last year, and now he plays at the School of Rock in Tustin and attends the Orange County School of the Arts (OSCA).
Nick has performed live at several venues on both coasts, such as Las Olas Blues Fest 2013, Allegria Hotel Rooftop, and the Seminole Hard Rock. His biggest influences are the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, Metallica, and Megadeath. Just like his favorite guitarists, Nick's tireless devotion to rock music and his enthusiasm on the stage are electric!
