New project "The Elevator Collective"
Saturday, 10 July 2021
I am happy to announce that I am involved in a new project with the best band mates I have had the pleasure of working and touring with. We are the former band of Jesse Cook and call ourselves "The Elevator Collective". When the project ended with Jesse we saw an opportunity for us to continue our journey together by writing music as a collective - all of us drawing from our unique backgrounds and creating a unique sound which we have been cultivating behind jesse over the years. Please check out our Facebook, Instagram and Youtube channel as we continuously post new material.  
Rupakerias
Wednesday, 03 October 2018
Rupakerias is now available for purchase from cdbaby as a digital download or as a CD purchase. Copy and paste this into your browser - http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/nicolashernandez2

The album is also available for digital download from itunes. Or... if you like the personal touch simply send an email through the contact page and a CD will be mailed to you.

"Rupakerias" is a representation of where Nicolas’ journey has taken him so far. The title track is his furthest outside the box composition which is an attempt at sounding like the flamenco style of Bulerias but with the odd time signature (7/8) of the Indian Tala called Rupak. The rest of the album is a potpourri of emotion inducing sounds. From the darkness and sadness of Ecos de Lejos to the lightness and playfulness of Mariella. From the laidback nature of Dos Mundos to the happy and festive Re Mi Sol. Mociones and Emociones is itself a potpourri containing 4 vastly different tunes and was composed for the soundtrack of a short film using the rapid motions and bright colors of a flamenco dancer to advertise the latest advances of film making. The short description of this CD would be that it is a spanish guitar world album. But that description doesn't cover the Pink Floyd sounding electric guitar in Dos Mundos (Intro) and Dos Mundos, or the authentic sound of the Tabla in three of the tunes or the sound of a drum kit in Recordando a Cesar.

Montreal Jazz Festival!!
Monday, 11 June 2007
I have been invited to play at this prestigious festival this year. They tried to have me perfrom there last year after they heard my CD, but a conflict with Jesse's schedule at the last minute prevented it from happening. This year there is no conflict and it's definitely happening!! Check it out at the Carrefour General Motors stage at the corner of Jeanne-Mance street and De Maisonneuve blvd West at 6:30pm on July 4th. Ravi Naimpally and Chris Church will be performing with me.
