About Nico G
Inspired by a range of genres, Nico draws on the musical styles he loves most, bringing his own original twist to established favourites. The blues, which have always fascinated him, go hand in hand with rock, pop and folk. His original compositions and innovative arrangements will surprise listeners with interwoven, overlying melodies, made possible by the combination of fingerpicking and flat picking techniques.
A classically trained and highly regarded acoustic guitar player for over 15 years, in 2016 Nico G chose to embark on a new challenge and began his current solo project, creating and sharing his unique finger-picking playing style with audiences worldwide. After the release of a first album, recorded in collaboration with Italian guitarist Paolo Loveri in 2015, Nico G released his debut solo Acoustic Guitar EP in 2016, followed by The Road Book EP in 2018. Since this time Nico has played extensively throughout Europe and in Scotland, winning a ‘Danny’ at the Danny Kyle Open Stage Competition at Celtic Connections in January 2020.
