Artist Biography
 
 
Nicholas & The Pessimistics' debut, self-titled, 10-song LP was released in February 2016 and features a mix of folky, alt-country songs with sprinklings of bluegrass that serve as testament to where they've been, what they've learned, and where they're going. When it comes to songwriting and musicianship, these guys are the real deal.

Press Release
 
 
The beginning of Nicholas & The Pessimistics came from the end of Sirens on Sunday circa 2011. The former project was a genre hopping collaboration that put out a 5-song EP recorded at New Fidelity studios. The Band could be heard regularly on WNKU and was a featured headliner at the 2009 MidPoint Music Festival as guests of bass legend, Cincinnati icon, and former employer Bootsy Collins. Although the band received a noteworthy amount of support, their success was precarious and the band imploded under the infamous pretext of creative differences.
The ember that remained smoldering off the Sirens on Sunday EP was a track that singer-songwriter Nicholas Baker wrote in a hotel room in Chattanooga, TN called "The Feel"—a melancholy, acoustically-driven track that in some respects was out of place among the rest of the songs on the aforementioned studio effort. "I knew things were heading in a different direction when i sold my telecaster," said Baker. "I had notebooks of things I really wanted to say. Things I had learned. Things I’m still learning."
Nicholas & The Pessimistics are a concentrated effort with honesty at their foundation. They are the definitive of what was once ambivalent. Members Nicholas Baker (vocals/guitar), Shawn Steele (lead guitar), and BJ Schweinlin (drums) played as a trio for a short while, traveling to Nashville and being featured at venues such as the Exit/In and the Rutledge before adding bassist Alex Fraser to head into the studio with them. Their debut, self-titled, 10-song LP was released in February 2016 and features a mix of folky, alt-country songs with sprinklings of bluegrass that serve as testament to where they've been, what they've learned, and where they're going. When it comes to songwriting and musicianship, these guys are the real deal.
