I was born in San Fernando, Trinidad. His first introduction to the steel drums came at age 14 with the New Creation Youth Steel Orchestra under the tutelage of Joseph Lett and Michael George. Since that time, Nicholas has performed with various steel bands in Trinidad and the U.S. to the likes of Point Fortin Sun Valley, Dunlop Tornadoes, Moods Pan Groove and Steel Sensation to name a few. He took his musical skills to another level in 2000 when he became the musical director for the Sesame Flyers Youth Steel Orchestra.
As their musical instructor over the next few years, Nicholas arranged pieces for the band across different genres of music to often entertain the public. His arrangements have also been played by the orchestra at bomb competitions and panoramas, including winning pieces for pan solo competitions in Brooklyn, New York and Baltimore, Maryland.
He has performed both as a soloist and a band member throughout the east coast of the US, including a television appearance on Better Mornings Atlanta. In 2005, he released his first CD entitled “Steelin’ the Mood”, which has received rave reviews from both the general public and steel band community at large. Since his migration to Atlanta in 2006, Nicholas has demonstrated his enhanced musical knowledge and talents serving as the musical director, arranger and performing studio production recordings for local bands such as Mellow Steel, Pan People Steel Orchestra and Ambakaila. Nicholas continues to demonstrate his commitment to the art-form through his performances, arranging and producing talents and continued education of the community on the versatility of this powerful musical instrument: the steel pan.
