Born in 1988 in Braintree, Massachusetts, indie-bred, country-pop crooner Nick Santino rose to prominence in the mid-2000s as the frontman for emo-tinged, late-'90s alt-rock/punk-pop revivalists A Rocket to the Moon. The band unleashed five EPs and two well-received long-players before calling it quits (amicably) in 2013 after the release of the album Wild & Free, the same year that Santino would issue his debut solo EP, the rustic and upbeat Coming Home. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
