The Nick Valentini Collective- Old Souls

by Jeremy Moore on October 22, 2016

Have a listen to a few tracks from Las Angeles based, Nick Valentini Collective and you’ll wonder about the hard road that these soulful art rockers have traveled to give them the sweet grit that flows from your speakers. Then you have a look at a picture and you see young boys that look like they have no business playing as they do.  I was reminded of a young Ralph Macchio playing in Crossroads and suddenly I was a pasty version of Willy Brown, nay saying.

Below I’ve shared their brand new video titled Worms. Have a listen to the tune and check out a few of the videos that autoplay after and then try and tell me you aren’t a fan.

The Nick Valentini Collective is a critically acclaimed eight-piece, fusion musical collective born in Los Angeles, California.  Blending art rock and experimental psychedelic soul; the band has received critical acclaim from many high profile media outlets.
The collective consists of Nick Valentini (singer, keyboard), 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).  The group formed a little over six months ago and have quickly made a name for themselves in the Southern California music scene attracting large audiences to their dynamic live shows.
Their debut album is set for release in late fall 2016 and showcases Valentini’s deliberate melodies, strong hooks and unique musical arrangements.  On the single “Carousel” Valentini’s soulful vocals are layered over smooth piano riffs and experimental clashing guitars for a truly captivating sound.  “Worms” highlights the collective’s signature cinematic sound with lush piano, deep bass and soaring vocals.
Lead songwriter Nick Valentini takes influence from the freedom of expression and creativity that has become prevalent in today’s sociopolitical system. “The upcoming album is inspired by the beauty of experimentation and the eagerness to explore endless possibilities through voice and music. There is opportunity to grow as people and individuals by simply trying new things” – states Valentini.

The Nick Valentini Collective are set to announce their debut album in the coming months and will be touring extensively this fall.
