Born in Los Angeles in the fall of 2015, The Nick Valentini Collective is a critically-acclaimed eight-piece musical collective that blends elements of indie rock, jazz and psychedelic soul into a captivating, multi-layered melange of rich melodies and soulful, cathartic vocals. Led by Nick Valentini (singer, keyboard), the group also features Erik Shibowski (bass), Hugo Shibowski (tenor sax), Nate Schwartz (guitar), Nicolo Scolieri (flute), Nick Velez (drums), Gabriel Wheaton (string orchestration) and Tyler Wennstrom (keyboard/percussion). On the strength of their dynamic live shows, the group has garnered a devoted following since their debut.
The group’s two singles, “Carousel” and “Mr. Mister,” will both be featured on their debut album, scheduled for release in late summer 2016. In the meantime, The Nick Valentini Collective will be touring extensively during the coming months.
