Creating the sound of a modern one man band, Nicholas Lefler mixes live loops of Acoustic, Electric and Classical Guitars, Keyboard, Bass, Drums and Percussion. Never using pre recorded tracks, Nicholas creates sultry compositions right before your eyes, as he adds over 20 live layers of original music.
Compared to many Spanish and Classical Guitarists, Nicholas stands out by mixing a fusion of Latin, Flamenco, Classical, Jazz, Country, Folk and World Music to innovate his own exotic style and all without a band.
His musical highlights include performing over 4,000 shows with artists such as Damian Marley, Jefferson Starship, Michael Franti and recording with Grammy Winning Engineer David Lopez.
He has also performed at prestigious venues such as the 2002 Winter Olympics, S.F. Avallon Ballroom, Boulder Theatre, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, San Jose Jazz Fest and over 1,200 Wine Events.
"A self taught Master of Spanish and Classical Guitar" (Gold Country Wine Tours), Nicholas is also the creator of the nationally touring band Alma Melodiosa (Alma), the Spaghetti Western band Skull Country, the 22 year running River Ranch Music Festival and a core member of the Indie Dance Band The Hot Dark.
And when not performing, Nicholas works endlessly in his home recording studio in Murphys, CA, producing and engineering various side projects under different aliases, as well as constantly working with new artists.
A multi instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, recording engineer and producer, Nicholas has made over 20 Albums in the last 25 years.
