Billboard Hot 100 Fest: On Sale Now! With Skrillex, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Nicki Minaj!
His solo work began with a limited collection of demos he sold at shows in 2007 entitled Black Rose Paladins. A more official debut came in the form of 2009's Major General, followed by Luck and Courage in 2010 and the Kickstarter-funded Do the Struggle in 2012. A slightly more traditionally grounded follow-up appeared in early 2015 with fourth album To Us, The Beautiful. His solo compositions tended more toward lyrical and storytelling songwriting, but incorporated elements from his eclectic and ravenous musical interests. Along with his more regular pursuits, Nicolay has made prominent guest appearances with a wide array of acts including Leftover Crack, the Dresden Dolls, and others. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
