John Nichols + Friends
“A Celebration of Collaboration”
I think that the greatest conflict faced by humanity is the fact that our species tends to celebrate sameness and attack difference. John Nichols + Friends is a celebration of the strength we have when each of us utilizes our individuality as part of something bigger. We live in a polarizing time, and this show is meant to be a reprise from the forces that separate us. It is an opportunity for people to come together to support something that we can all agree on: music is amazing.
John Nichols + Friends will be accompanied by the release of an album with the same name. Each song was written with a different collaborator, creating a diverse collection of songs linked by the spirit of this project; when we fully embrace our individuality, we have a totally unique gift to offer the greater good. Each musician involved brought a piece of who they are to this project, creating a whole that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
The show will begin with a showcase of my incredible friends. Each of the songwriters involved with the album will play a set of their own original music. The musicians involved include Gabriel Berenbaum, Colin McKinley, Mosay, Liam O’Brien, and everyone’s favorite string quartet, The Wild. Next will be intermission, featuring a variety of fun activities such as coffee and beer tastings and art displays created by more of my insanely talented friends. The night will end with my senior recital, a collection of songs I have written over the past few years. It will be a journey through my creative process, including songs from my debut EP, Beach, a performance by my hip hop group, Hypnic Jerk, and a full performance of the John Nichols + Friends album. I’ve put so much work into this, and I couldn’t be more excited :)
If I could change one thing about the world, it would be to help people see that our differences are what connect us, and that we should honor them as such. I am proud to be performing alongside a diverse group of some of the best musicians I know, and no matter who you are, I would like to humbly invite you to join us for a night of celebration.
