"It wasn’t really that long ago that Perth’s Nic Rollo set his sights upon the world of music, but in such a short time, he’s managed to become one of the slickest and most exciting artists on the scene." - TONE DEAF
Born in Perth, Western Australia, Nic developed a keen passion for music at a young age through learning trumpet in primary school followed by singing and then guitar in his senior years. Inspired to try home recording and producing by the likes of Mac Demarco and Tame Impala, Nic began to hone this craft when he was 15.
In 2019 he released his debut EP ‘What Happened to the Kid’. A single from the EP ‘Feel’ got international airplay (UK/US) as well as an addition to the ‘Fresh Finds: Poptronix’ Spotify editorial playlist.
In early 2020 Nic released his single ‘Monster’, which now has nearly 200,000 streams and received positive responses from numerous blogs, including TONE DEAF, MUSIC FEEDS, The Music Network, and more. Despite COVID19, Nic has released an additional 5 songs and a music video this year so far. Two of his most recent releases “Talk About the Weather” and “Ain’t Romance” were both featured on numerous TikTok videos, amassing millions of views and hundreds of thousands of likes.
With musical influences ranging from The War on Drugs and Radiohead to Charlie Puth and The Weeknd, featuring a combination of organic and digital sounds largely self-produced, Nic’s music stands out as “Hugely impressive, atmospheric and emotive”, says Aza Bojangles from Lowdown Under.
