Nick Pittsinger was born in Tampa, Florida on May 15th, 1990. Ever since he was a toddler, he was entranced by music, whether it was his father’s guitar-playing or him just slapping at the family keyboard. With no musical training or prior serious playing, Nick was already bringing crowds of people to gather around keyboards at the local music store at the age of ten. At 11, Nick picked up the guitar and started to teach himself how to play, after a just a few lessons, Nick decided being self-taught was the way to go. He started intensely studying music theory at the age of 14, and traded the guitar for a piano, once he noticed that he wasn’t getting his full ideas out on a guitar. By the age of 18, Nick was a fully-fledged multi-instrumentalist, playing everything from bass guitar to drums to flute.

After playing in various bands from classic rock cover bands to death metal and jazz bands, Nick decided the best way to really excel in music was to go solo, and take up production. At the age of nineteen, he shut himself in his room and studied production theory, FL Studio, Reason, and a bit of Ableton. He also continued his studies in music theory, composition, and jazz theory. Working with outdated software, with broken hardware, Nick was somehow able to create a 14-track album called Music for Dolphins, using a MIDI keyboard that only had eight working keys.

It was only in 2010 that Nick finally got some working gear, and the results of this new acquisition were immense. He went on to produce his album Blue Skies are Space Oceans, a psychedelic concept album experience in the span of five months. In August, Nick obtained a serious amount of notoriety and critical acclaim for his viral smash hit, Justin Bieber – U Smile (800% Slower). Receiving praise from places like NPR , MTV, Entertainment Weekly, Adult Swim and Ryan Seacrest, Nick was now a recognizable name forever in the music industry.

Nick will continue his journey in 2011, which looks absolutely promising. He hopes to land a job at a video game company doing soundtracks for a living, while continuing his electronic music career as Shamantis and Halo Nova.
