From busking on the Las Vegas underground to touring the United States opening for the Cult, Better Than Ezra, Train and Cheap Trick to name a few. Nick fuses his own powerful Pop/Rock songs with the great songs from the past 30 years performed in his own dynamic way.
He's an entertainer, singer & songwriter. He also owns and operates Nick Mattera Productions, a booking agency in Las Vegas. His first adventure into music began at the age of 7 when he started playing guitar. Soon Nick began combining the key elements of his singer/songwriter influences like James Taylor, Tom Petty and Pearl Jam into an approach that brings together his fluent guitar playing, deep singing voice and invigorating improvisation into timeless sounding songs that touch people of all ages.
