Creating the sound of a modern one man band, Nicholas Lefler mixes live loops of Guitar, Bass and Percussion. Never using pre recorded tracks, he creates sultry compositions right before your eyes, as he adds up to 20 live layers of organic loops.
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 6,000 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 1200 Wine Events.
"A self taught Master of Spanish and Classical Guitar" (Gold Country Wine Tours), Nicholas is the creator of the nationally touring band Alma Melodiosa (Alma) as well as 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 (Guitar, Keyboard, Bass, Drum Set, Percussion) and singer-songwriter, Nicholas has been producing and recording his own music for over 25 years.
