Recording artist Nicolas Bearde, one of today's premier male jazz vocalists, has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences worldwide for his "buttery baritone" and deeply imaginative interpretations. A seasoned and highly respected showman onstage, his brilliant and lush vocals combine passion, wit and sensuality, with an engaging rapport that captures and draws the audience into his performance. Forged from his Nashville roots and his 1980s initiation into the thriving San Francisco music scene, Nicolas' unique approach and electrifying delivery of his originals, time-tested standards, blues, and other familiar jazz works, is unmistakable.
For the past 20 years, Nicolas has also delighted audiences with his vocal stylings as a member of Bobby McFerrin's wildly innovative a cappella ensemble, "Voicestra," while carving out his own distinctive solo career. With classic performances and cool interpretations of jazz standards and blues — Nicolas is the definitive jazz romantic.
