Tune in to birnCORE on Friday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. for a live broadcast from the Red Room @ Cafe 939 featuring funk/soul artist Nick Black and special guest Zoe Sparks.
Influenced by the feel good music of Justin Timberlake, Al Green, Sting, and Bruno Mars, Nick Black has created a sound that is unique, yet familiar and nostalgic. He grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, where soul, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, and blues legends made names for themselves. Black released his first album The Soul Diaries in 2012, marking the start of his musical journey. Since then, he’s been featured on Muscle Shoals to Music Row, a concert series filmed at the legendary Fame Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, as well as DittyTV, an Americana and roots channel. He also won Juneteenth awards in 2015 for album of the year and band of the year. Venturing into new territory with his recently released single “Grenadine,” Black pursues his curiosity in electronic music, adding dance beats to his versatile sound.
