Being a musician is the only thing Nick Vyner ever felt a calling to. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, in a home full of musicians, music has been a constant in his life, but the alt-pop music he is known for now was not always his intended path – he actually grew up singing in a local boys’ choir.

With classical music as his driving passion, Nick auditioned for and was accepted to train as a vocalist at Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. During his early days at the school, Nick began to explore genres outside of classical, including jazz, musical theater and eventually, pop. This was a turning point that changed the course of his life. Drawing early inspiration from masterful songwriters like Lorde and John Mayer, he found that writing pop music freed his imagination and gave him the space to tell stories. No longer confined to the stricture of classical music, Nick decided to focus his creative energy towards songwriting.

After graduation, he put college on hold and moved to Los Angeles in the Fall of 2018, taking a leap of faith with the promise that he was going to make his music career work. Nick settled in and dedicated himself to writing, recording and meeting with as many people as possible, including Stanley Randolph, a frequent collaborator. He released several songs independently before making his label debut with “Mood Swing”, produced by Randolph. “Mood Swing” was released at the end of 2020 via a joint venture between 10K Projects and Flighthouse Media and has amassed millions of streams and over 24 million plays on TikTok.

2022 finds Nick venturing back into the Indie world. In March, Nick released “Foundation, produced with co-creators Luka Kloser and Jack LaBoz. Also released in March was “Cool with Me”, Nick’s feature with Yung Bae, which appears on the album “Groove Continental: Side A”. In May, he debuted “Flood”, produced with Casey Malanuk, a song that has been years in the making. Nick’s next release will be the studio version of “Stones”, another collaboration with Stanley Randolph. The Recording Academy is currently featuring the live version of “Stones” on their PressPlay at Home YouTube channel and at Grammy.com.

With each song, Nick aspires to make music that soundtracks life as he lives it.
