Nick Virag's deep rooted folk sound, mixed with his
innate sense of rhythm, results in an enchanting blend of music that listeners
just can't get enough of. With his funk-ridden strumming patterns and his
soulful voice, he strays away from the mundane norm that most solo acoustic musicians
tend to fall into. Five minutes at one of his shows will certainly have you rethinking how acoustic rock ought to sound.
If you had to choose one word to describe Nick's playing style, "crafty" would be it. He is constantly dreaming up new ways to create sounds that will keep his audiences enthralled. In some instances, he incorporates the use of a loop station. When he
does, he is able to compliment his songs with a rhythmic landscape that has a
truly organic vibe. All of his music is self-produced, so as to preserve his
creative vision. "Nick is a budding songwriter, with an honest approach
and thoughtful lyrics"- Charley Orlando.
Nick Virag got his start as a student at Le Moyne
College, playing at a cafe located on campus. He then began to expand his repertoire,
with a catalog of original songs that he would later bring on the road with
him. The most important component of his musical journey is making sure that
his songs see new ears as often as possible. So far, he has developed a
presence in New York City, Boston, Providence, and Syracuse. He has shared
the stage with notable artists including Charley Orlando, The Como Brother's
Band, and The Broadcast.
It is important that when Nick plays, he evokes a
feeling from his listeners. His music is used as a platform to convey his
message, with a common theme of love and life.
