Nice to Be Here
'The Hagelin equation: Not only is he a super-promising singer-songwriter, but he's also a gifted dancer who is currently a member of the Carolina Ballet.' - Philip Van Fleck, Metro Magazine, November 2007. Nick Hagelin does it all. Taking home first place in the North Carolina Songwriter's contest allowed him to build a recording studio in his home, and write, produce, and engineer his first full length album, 'Nice To Be Here.' A tremendously soulful testament to life and love, his music crosses genres seamlessly, with jazzy chord structures, r&b grooves, pop melodies and the soulful simplicity of a man and his acoustic guitar. His music has a universal appeal and accessibility that is unprecedented in modern pop and his lyrics are those of a young man who has lived a full and richly complex life.
