Nick D’Andrea is from Columbus, Ohio. He started writing songs at the age of 16 and spent the next decade creating home recordings and pursing a career in education. In 2013 he decided to pursue music full time and formed Nick D’ & the Believers with Joseph Barker and Kerry Henderson. All told they released four EPS, three singles, toured extensively and had a number of songs featured on national TV shows.
That same year he formed a new project, Doc Robinson, with Columbus based singer-songwriter Jon Elliott of The Floorwalkers. They released their debut EP, Golden Daze in November 2016 and they have since released two full length albums, three EPs and a hatful of singles. They have toured extensively, opening for Columbus natives, Caamp.
Nick’s songwriting is deeply influenced by luminaries of the industry such as Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Smokey Robinson, John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, as well as more contemporary artists like Vampire Weekend, Wilco, and the Tallest Man on Earth.
