Nick's Story

Nick Ryan Piescor is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, instructor, and producer from Red Bank, New Jersey. He grew up listening to the classic rock and roll that sounded from his father's radio and was greatly inspired from it musically, and you can hear a bit of it in every note he plays. Piescor gets a second wind of inspiration quite often, and his musical tastes also range from good old blues, to jazz, to even modern top 40. Today, he accompanies a number of artists including Taylor Tote and Jody Joseph Bongiovi, as well as writing and performing his own original songs. He also is a vocal, piano and guitar instructor, producer, and artist developer working alongside Jody and her non-profit "Heartstrings", which benefits underprivileged kids with the opportunity of receiving music lessons

He started his musical journey at age three, when he picked up his first guitar. His joy and aspiration to be a musician one day resulted taking vocal and guitar lessons by the time he was five from Jody Joseph. He was no stranger to the stage from day one and would always refer to it as his second home , and alongside Jody he got opportunities to play at such venues as the Starland Ballroom, the Cutting Room in NYC, and even on Good Morning America when he was a young kid. He joined a local rock band program at age 8 and from that he got the opportunity to play with the Marshall Tucker Band at the legendary Count Basie Theater by the time he was 10. The band ate him up and gave him accolades from the first time they saw him, and invited him back to play two more shows with them at various venues. 

Nick started his first band at age 12, the Machines,  when he started seriously writing his own music. He always aspired to be the next Springsteen, and wrote, fronted, and lead the band like his dream boss. The band got the privilege to play at legendary venues up and down the Jersey shore including their own headlining performance at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, as well as getting the opportunity to work with producer and legendary bass player Kenny Aaronson. Nick and the band released their first music video in the summer of 2015, with video produced by Dan Saulnier and Demiurgic Entertainment and music produced by Aaronson. 

Nick is currently the lead guitar player and backing vocalist of the Taylor Tote Band, and also working on his own solo career. He began teaching guitar, piano, and vocals in 2015 alongside his old instructor Jody Joseph, and is currently an working alongside her as a teacher in her non-profit "Heartstrings". Mentoring, enlightening and ministering has become a large part of his life and a staple to who he is.
