Nicholas Kim (Victory of the People)
Nicholas Kim is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from the wonderful city of Austin, Texas. In the summer of 2011, Nick began the production of his first EP, Take This Heart, which was then released on November 3, 2011. He wrote, produced, and recorded every song on the record, and played every instrument as well.
With the combination of artfully crafted pop punk melodies, catchy throwback doo-wop hooks, and honest, retrospective lyrics, Nick's music is born. Growing up listening to pop punk bands like Fall Out Boy, New Found Glory, and The Starting Line, the root of the explosive power pop sound is evident. But with mixture of that "oldies" 1950's doo-wop, rhythm and blues feel is where the sound finds it originality.
