Nick Andrew Staver
Nick Andrew Staver, now based in Philadelphia PA, has spent most of his musical career performing and learning on the run. Spending 7 years with his first band ever, Ledbetter Heights, Nick has performed hundreds of gigs throughout the Tri-state region. Ranging from solo acoustic performances to full band arrangements, Ledbetter Heights helped shape Nick into the hard-working blue collar musician he is today. Releasing 3 original albums in LBH's tenure, Nick fulfilled the duties of lead vocals and guitar before the group split up in early 2010.

It was during his time with LBH that Nick began his musical education journey. First starting with Berklee College of Music, earning a masters certificate in Songwriting and Guitar. Mid-way through his enrollment, Nick was a recipient of the Paul Simon Songwriting Scholarship. Studying with Berklee, Nick began gaining the appropriate tools to which would be the basis of his musical creativity. Some people believe that music education hinders your ability to be unique and creative, Nick believes it is a springboard to hidden outlets of creativity. He saw his musical vocabulary beginning to positively grow, so after finishing his courses he began taking lessons from jazz icon and acclaimed teacher Chuck Anderson. Covering areas including technique, improv and composition, Nick has gained a musical maturity that has allowed him to unlock many closed doors.

Now with a new group forming behind him and new songs, Nick Andrew Staver is writing the next chapter. Always reflecting off his past and paying respects to his idols, past and present, his music moves within him and resonates with his audiences. Each performance is an intimate opportunity to capture a desired dose of contemporary jazz and blues mixed into modern songwriting storylines.
