KTSU Choice Artist of the Month: Nick Colionne

| June 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

Guitarist, Nick Colionne, possesses a jazz style that is both urban and contemporary.  He has blazed a trail to the top of the ranks of today’s stars.  Combining jazz, R&B, blues and funk, he has an unmistakable sound and vibe that is instantly recognizable.  Nick grew up in a household full of music – and at age nine he began to learn guitar from his stepfather.  By the age of 15 he turned pro, touring all over the world with famous artists and bands.  Because he was usually the youngest band member, he would sometimes paint a mascara moustache on his upper lip to make himself look older – so imagine his embarrassment when his grandmother attended one of his concerts and promptly wiped said moustache off with her ever-present handkerchief.  Nick Colionne’s charismatic stage presence, combined with his guitar virtuosity, are evidence he’s succeeded; audiences love the excitement and energy he brings to every performance.
