Nick Rich (b. 1984) is a guitarist, composer, and songwriter whose work explores the intersections of popular and experimental.

Originally from a family of musicians who played Country-Western, Bluegrass, and Rock, Nick performs frequently on guitar and mandolin. His compositions investigate the sounds and idioms of popular and folk music within dreamlike time structures that shift, collide, disintegrate, and repeat.

Nick received a Master of Music degree from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and Bachelor of Music from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. More at
