Nicksploitation Album Cover
"When I was growing up, my favorite bands and artists provided an escape from the real world. I felt like they understood me. They made me wanna dance. They made me believe I could handle anything. They weren't just my heroes. They were my support system. It was us against the world.
I wanted to be like my heroes, making music that was different - that pushed the boundaries of what was the norm. Music that took a chance to go somewhere else. Unfortunately for me, the record industry - i.e. the people who have the power to make or break an artist - operate under a condition of extreme conformity. I've never been able to get on with that. There's no possibility that I could ever sign a major label record contract without sacrificing my creative freedom. And if I don't have that, I ain't got nothin'. Besides, I don't wanna work for them. I wanna work for you.
Today, that's finally a possibility. Music fans like you have more opportunity than ever to discover new artists that you find exciting. Artists like me have more opportunity than ever to find their audience on terms that align with their integrity.
Not only am I excited about creating music that's different, I'm excited to break all the rules in how music is discovered.
With that spirit in mind, I've decided to release my latest album, Nicksploitation, to you, in a way that no one's ever done before.
I invite you to join me on an immersive week-long experience – a journey that takes you through the songs, the stories behind the album, and an insight into what inspired it's creation. What I hope to do with this is take the fan/artist relationship to the next level.
I'm going to be giving you every song on the album, in the highest quality available, FOR FREE. I recently filmed live videos for each of the songs and, yes, I will be sharing those with you, as well. There's lots of work stage lyrics, behind the scenes photos, and a large amount of interactive materials that make up the Nicksploitation Experience.
Now, this is a big experiment, and I don't know how it's going to work out. But I'm betting that people like you will be as jazzed about it as I am. I just know that if I tear down the wall between fan and artist, it will be a million times better than how the music industry does things now. I want this to be an example of what the future could be.
Now, doing this goes completely against the grain. My friends in the industry think I'm crazy. And they're right. I know I'm crazy. But I don't care. I'm dedicating myself to this experiment. I hope that you will be an important part of it. Join me. Help me make it better and help me prove everyone else wrong.
The fact that you're even reading this means the world to me. So, even if you don't wanna go on the journey, I still really appreciate you taking the time to read a bit of my story.
If you do wanna continue on, then let's go for broke, say fuck it, and have some fun. I got you.
Let's do this!"
