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 was quick, communicative, and inspired by our project. His interest and passion resonated through the score and helped our film achieve the emotional heights that we were aiming for. Working with Nicolas was a breeze, as he quickly understood the tone and feel, and even innovated on it, going beyond our expectations. I would love to work with him again!”

Nicolas added a layer of joy to working on the project that would not have been possible without him. His constant care and desire to better the piece is unparalleled, and his attention to detail and willingness to work with the entire production team made the pipeline run all the more smoothly. I couldn't recommend him enough!”

Short Bio

Nicolas’s rich cinematic scores bring a new dimension to storytelling.

Born and raised in Ottawa Canada, Nicolas has been composing and experimenting with music production since the age of 14. His emotive signature sound is often filled with unusually rare live instrumentation that leaves a special flare on each of his pieces. This distinct filmic style and production twist have won him a global scoring competition and several collaborations over the years.

He is currently working with music production studios "Cavalry Music" and "Two AM Music Studios".

Besides collecting and hoarding unique instruments from around the world, Nicolas is also a sound designer and beta tester for the world-renowned sample library company, 8Dio.
