Nikhil Dsouza Band, special appearance by Nicholson.
Opening Act: Tejas Menon
Nikhil DSouza is a talented guitarist and singer-songwriter from Mumbai, India. Nikhils genre and musical style can be loosely defined as eclectic acoustic guitar based pop. His songs have a full melodic quality to them due to his use of alternative tunings (favored by such artists as Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley). Nikhil’s major musical influences have been Sting and Jeff Buckley. Over the past few years Nikhil has been co-writing with different writers, performing solo as well as with his band and working hard at developing his songwriting and performance skills. During this time he has performed many shows across India as well as Europe, US and Australia.
Recently, Nikhil has been travelling back and forth to Nashville to co-write with award winning songwriter Jeff Cohen. They have been busy writing and recording songs for Nikhil’s US launch in 2015. Whilst in India Nikhil is in the studio most days recording tracks for film and TV commercials, most evenings he is perfoming live for his large indian following across the country.
Nikhil had to be brave to get to this level, quitting his secure day job as a Geologist to pursue music full time. The strength of his original songs, the beautiful tones and range of his voice together with his attractive image and looks are all the ingredients of a rising international star.
