Hailing from central Ohio, considered by some as a microcosm for national sentiment, electropop singer/songwriter/producer, Nick Long, has started turning heads producing music under the moniker, Nearly a Nation.

Described as having “musical imagination” and being “incredibly poignant,” Nearly a Nation stands out as an act said to be worthy of being lifted to the global stage. Shaking off the stereotypes often associated with the genres surrounding electronic dance music, Nearly a Nation is forging a new path, one that hopes to raise both personal and national consciousness.

His debut self-released album, Outburst, in 2015, received special attention for the single ‘Radiate,’ named by The Akademia as Best Song–Dance/Electronica for January 2016. ‘Radiate’ was also included on Indie Anthems Vol. 10 and released at SXSW as part of a 20-song compilation of top unsigned, independent artists. 

2016 proves to be a breakout year for NaN with the release of his second album, Conquest, and the recent signing of a licensing agreement with L.A. based Wicked Licensing in June. Tour dates are currently being scheduled for this fall.
