For cinematic scores and mood driven film work, Nicolas would be my first choice. Top notch songwriting, production, and engineering skills all wrapped up in a single package. He’s a powerhouse musician.”

— Jason Jaknunas - Recording Engineer/Producer (The Souljazz Orchestra, Rebecca Noelle)

Nicolas is by far one of the easiest people to work with. He understands the film's pace and the artistic vision and helps bring it to where it needs to be. I would not work with anyone else.”

— Joshua Crosby - Writer/Director (The Undesirables)

Like a new character, his sounds accompany the actors, underline them, never overpowering them but still indispensable.”

— Dougy Hérard - Writer/Director
