What we offer

Nic Gyalson plays original songs from his albums, performing as singer, guitarist and keyboardist (Hammond, synth, electric piano).
On stage he's often flanked by Serena Maggini on backing vocals and keyboards, and Dario Pedrazzi on the drums.

His style is a combination of psychedelic music from the 60s (the sound of bands such as The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Cream, ...) and modern rhythmic patterns with electronic beats. The lyrics and vocal melodies are at times bluesy/soulful, at times definitely pop.

It is a refined and refined genre, but catchy and overwhelming. In concert, every detail is taken care of, from sounds to lights, yet leaving space for natural improvisation, since Nic holds a great deal both to the quality of execution of his works, as well as to the natural feeling of musicians on stage.

The show is suitable for clubs, festivals or events where the most important thing is the music, the show.
He doesn't do background music.

(Storia di Un Casco by Fulvio Mariani) in the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh, a desert,
frozen mountain environment where inspiration can develop freely.
Combining his two passions, film and music, he decided to start working on what was going
to become his debut album, ALLUVISION. Three years where devoted to shaping the piece
of work, an ambitious debut album blending Nic’s main influences: blues/soul, psychedelic
rock and electronic music.
On December the 5th 2017 Nic published a new album, Soundtracks 2014 – 2017,
containing the music he composed for films over the last 3 years.
On January the 6th 2018, Nic released a new single, Mr Sorrow, a song that tells some of the
