Nick is always striving to be the best version of himself. Whether that be in his music, life, or spirituality. His music varies from a wide range of sounds. From love songs, to gritty hip-hop songs, to turn up club bangers, to deep reflective music, and much more. Album’s, EP’s, and music videos. He does and has it all. His music is a reflection of self. Raw, real, and vulnerable. Any time you hear a Nick Walker record expect to be taken on a musical journey, down a road into a piece of his world. Into a piece of his life, and into a piece of his mind. His wish is to inspire people through his life example, his music, and his motivational videos. To share his life with others through his art in hopes that someone else can benefit from it, and relate to it. To make a positive impact on the world, and to bring people closer to God. To show others that you can do anything you put your mind to, no matter what obstacles you face. That anything is possible with God. Nick Walker is an Icon, a Superstar, and a Legend. He wants you to know that you are too. And to not let anyone tell you otherwise. God Bless.
