Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, the city of style, culture, vibrant nightlife, and partying, Eric Nicholas, known in the Music Industry as “Ciré” is the ultimate Renaissance artist.
Ciré caught the music bug early in life. Watching his dad practice on piano and perform as a keyboardist with his band, Ciré developed a passionate love for music. When he was five-years-old he performed his first recording session, singing background vocals on his father’s first professional recording.
Ciré studied music at the acclaimed New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), which allowed him to travel the world and perform throughout Europe and South America.
When Ciré saw the legendary Herbie Hancock perform, at that moment he knew that he was destined to do something extraordinary with his talent. Thus, his destiny was set.
With over 25 years in the music industry, Ciré utilizes his extensive knowledge of the techniques of acoustic designing and sound recording to produce music in a plethora of genres: pop, rock, r&b, soul, hip-hop, jazz, classical, orchestral, as well as his own signature music style.
Passionate about presenting real quality music that comes from his heart to his listening audience, Ciré is truly an inspiration to the Music Industry. His personal musical inspirations extend from Bill Evans, Kenny Kirkland, and Joe Sample, to Miles Davis, George Duke, and Chic Corea.
