Professional songwriter/singer/keyboard/guitar/producer/world citizen Nick Schinder, aka The Child (his long term project and alter ego) has written, played and produced for countless artists, both signed (Sony) and unsigned; won several contests around the world, travelled and gigged around Latin America and Europe, and released 7 albums of original music.
 
Nick Schinder was born in Argentina where in 1999 he founded The Child.
 
By the end of 2000, The Child got to be one of the 20 finalists of the 1st Ibero- American Contest of Internet Music, organized by Universal. Altogether 2700 musicians participated, from all over Latin America, Spain and even the U.S.A. They’ve also reached the semi-finals of the First Latin-American Beatle Week, by playing their own special versions of some of Beatles songs.

In 2002, they moved to Barcelona, Spain, where they usually played at many historical music places in the city, such as Kennedy, London Pub, La Ruta dels Elefants, El Forum and Maremagnum.
In 2003 they reached the semifinals of the Demo Project organized by the International Festival of Benicassim, 2003, one of the greatest festivals in pop, electro and the indie scene in continental Europe. In that same year, The Child produced its second album, “Home”, which begins to define the sound of the band: an unclassifiable pop, post rock, electro and world music blend, heterodox material and exquisite vocals.

In January 2005 The Child launched its third LP, Format Soul. This became a year of international projection, playing numerous gigs in London and Munich.

In 2007, Nick and The Child move to London, where they release their fourth album, “Think Loud”, and tour the UK intensively (The Marquee Club, The Comedy, The Long Acre, Bull & Gate, Hope & Anchor, The Water Rats, Storm, Sound, The Dublin Castle, The Bullet Bar,).

In 2008, Nick Schinder meets Jacqui Doherty (lyricist) and together they create Deep River Running. They have released 3 albums under that name (2009’s homonymous, 2011’s “Revolutions For The Soul” and 2013’s “One Turn Around The Sun”), all available world-widely via iTunes and most online retailers.

In 2010, the animated video for their single “Don’t Give It Up” (directed by renowned Mexican director Fernando Leal) generates an interesting buzz on the net and receives 60.000 views in a few months.

Some reviews about Nick and his bands.
“you couldn't knock it down even if you had all the Brit-school chart-toppers on your side...brilliant pop-rock...The Child have nailed the pop-rock equation to produce classic tracks. Britpop is back with Argentinean class” (Tasty Fanzine)

“...Pop noire with singer-songwriterly leanings, a fragile voice embellished with ample ambient colour. Very well realized, quite dark and tragi-pop in realization, reminiscent perhaps of Bowie circa Young Americans or the work of Butler and MacAlmont”.(Bugbear)
“First-class pop-rock with a classic feel and some top tunes...a first-class ear for song writing” (Subba-Cultcha)
“They’re quite a mysterious band. They formed in Argentina, they lived in Barcelona, they’re now based in London. I saw them almost by mistake and I was just blown away. They remind me of Jeff Buckley, REM, U2, Radiohead... They have that epic quality. The singer has a vulnerability in his voice that really connects with you, on an emotional level. They’re fantastic. (“Passport Approved” Indie Radio, 103.1, Los Angeles, USA)
“Nick Schinder and Jacqui Doherty combine their musical and poetic genius in their self-titled and self-produced album, Deep RiverRunning. Schinder, a world-traveled musical anomaly, and Doherty, a published poet, make an impeccable match made in heaven, creating a different vibe for each track...Deep River Running make it impossible to not fall in love with Schinder’s dreamy and captivating vocals, which are beautifully accessorized by Doherty’s lyrics”. (Pirate Cat Radio, San Francisco, USA)
