About Nick:
Composer, arranger, performer, singer, trombonist, band leader, conch shell player, bass player: Nick La Riviere is already well known in many circles as one of BC’s busiest musicians. As a sideman, Nick has performed with award winning artists of many genres - Michael Kaeshammer, Nikki Yanofsky, The Temptations, Adonis Puentes, The Paperboys, to name a few. He regularly plays R&B, folk, funk, latin, klezmer, jazz, pop; pretty much everything. Nick’s musical travels have taken him all over Canada, the USA, and as far as Germany, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, and more. He also teaches a 16 piece R&B band, leads a few bands of his own, and performs often on a nightly basis.

About the album:
With the release of Another Time Around, Nick prepares to take the musical world by storm with his own unique brand of genre-bending music. Every song on the album is original, with a blend of influences ranging from Sam Cooke to Jamiroquai to Ben Folds to Paul Simon. The album features a dizzying array of tempos, styles, and unexpected twists - all while driving forward with a cohesive unified sound. This is the album for everyone who likes variety in a performance - versatile musicians who can go from playing a heavy funky rock number right to a dynamic 12/8 ballad, or a catchy classic R&B style sing along.

‘Another Time Around’ features a big sound and includes guests such as Michael Kaeshammer and Alpha Yaya Diallo. Tracks contain fun treats like a 22 piece choir, a multitude of trombones, and a string section. Juno nominated producer Joby Baker lends his talented ear to bring the mix to life. As a finishing touch the album cover features a ‘3 flip lenticular print’ - the viewer sees a different image depending on the viewing angle. Why? Because this album is exciting, fun, and different - so why stop at
the audio?
