As a sideman, Nicholas has been the propulsion for a vast array of groups spanning all stylistic borders. For the past eight years he has been touring with Lizz Wright, most recently to promote her latest release, "Freedom and Surrender"(Concord). He also performs regularly with Canadian artists Ian Janes, Meaghan Smith, Charlie A'Court, Dinuk Wijeratne, and Geoff Arsenault, among others. He keeps busy recording albums and tracks for some of the world's finest, as well as television jingles and film scores. Nicholas balances his time on the road with teaching at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, where he is the bass instructor, and leads classes in improvisation.

Nicholas is playing and loving his Elfin Bass. There's a blurb about the affair on Martin's site.
He also Loves La Bella's 760N, nylon tapewound strings. When something else is called for, he'll reach for La Bella 760RL roundwounds or 760FL flatwounds. Long scale or medium scale.
