Pianist/composer Nick Sanders records for the esteemed international record label Sunnyside Records and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in New Orleans, Nick is a graduate of the New England Conservatory and multiple-year winner of the Marion and Eubie Blake International Piano Award. Nick will release his second CD for Sunnyside, “You Are A Creature,” in February, 2015. It follows his acclaimed debut “Nameless Neighbors” and like the first, was produced by Fred Hersch.
“Sanders proved to be a two-handed whiz at the keyboard, able to sustain complex contrapuntal lines and spin dramatic variations while maintaining the musical momentum. His sound was warm and embracing, but plenty of lightning flashed through his cloudscapes, as he nudged his bandmates with crisp trills, ringing octaves and edgy harmonic choices.”
