Nicholas Markos, has been called “a hipper underground version of David Gray” (Chicago Sun-Times) and "almost bewilderingly eclectic" (by Greg Kot of NPR's Sound Opinions); but the reality is that he's a subtle wizard of Pop music. Writing the score for several independent films, and doing remixes with Styx, Journey, and REO Speedwagon as The Hitmaker. Nicolas has also performed as an opening act for Bob Dylan, Melissa Etheridge, and the Violent Femmes. Writing for artists like Taylor Mills (of Brian Wilson's band), he is a slave to no genre. Markos always finds the right mood.
From pop-rock to ambient and electronic music, Nicholas Markos deftly shapes musical colors to suit his songs. Operating in a variety of genres (under a variety of pseudonyms), Markos consistently delivers music with real soul and emotion. His live-performance credits include opening sets for Bob Dylan, Melissa Etheridge, The Violent Femmes, Todd Rundgren, Roger McGuinn, Squeeze, and many others. His recorded works are brought to life with guest appearances by a number of friends: Todd Sucherman (Brian Wilson, Styx), Mike Zelenko (Material Issue), Howie Kantoff (Poster Children), Eddie Carlson (Poi Dog Pondering), Mark Schwarz (David Singer & the Sweet Science), and others.
In addition to producing and performing with other artists, and doing music for numerous TV and radio commercials, Markos has composed music and provided songs for several independent films, including the documentaries Trashed (Oxi Productions) and Vincent: A Life in Color (Zweeble Films).
