Nick D' & The Believers
Keyboardist/vocalist Nick D’Andrea abandoned his teaching path to form the Believers with friend/producer Joseph Barker, who shifted from guitar to drums, while guitarist Kerry Henderson remained in essentially the same gear to round out the trio. Claiming The Black Keys as a primary influence, Nick D’ and the Believers have churned out three excellent EPs to date, including their latest, the recently released Wanted. The Believers play with a primal simplicity that perfectly counterpoints their intelligent lyrical wordplay and their insistent ass-shaking beat. Wouldn’t you like to be a Believer too?
