ABOUT Nick Kizirnis

Dayton, Ohio-based Nick Kizirnis is a songwriter and guitarist with a distinctly moody Indie-Rock/Americana sound refined over decades of solo and collaborative musical experimentation. A musical trailblazer with a diverse track record both on and off stage, Nick has recorded with The Breeders (“The Dirt Eaters”) and Tobin Sprout (Guided by Voices), opened for a wide-range of bands including The Pixies, Man or Astro-Man, Dick Dale, Guided by Voices, Dave Alvin, The Breeders and Fugazi, had his songs feature on Reality TV shows like LA Tattoo, Road Rules and The Real World, and released 2 albums with The Mulchmen and several solo albums — one  of which, The Distance, was dubbed ‘‘a quintessential American record’ by Stereo Embers and ‘damn fine music’ by Power Popaholic. 

Building on influences ranging from Link Wray to The National, and from Guided By Voices to Neko Case, Nick’s penetrating lyrics and atmospheric guitar have won the hearts of a growing and diverse global fanbase. His music's innate relatability is more poignant than ever in the context of his latest album, Every Moment: recorded remotely during the darkest depths of lockdown and finalized in person, the creation of the album itself echoes the catharsis his music induces in those enduring life’s rockiest roads.
