Nico Segal

Nico Segal, Trumpeter and Producer from Chicago, kicked off his steady ascent as a founding member of the highly regarded band, Kids These Days. After their eventual split in 2013, Nico would build a sneakily impressive resume over the next ten years. Touring with Frank Ocean, founding The Social Experiment and producing their 2015 album “Surf,” writing and producing for Chance the Rapper, as well as occupying a myriad of high-profile stages, including 3 performances on Saturday Night Live, a Tiny Desk performance, the 2016 National Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Obama White House, the NBA All-Star game, the ESPYS, NY Jazz Fest, and TEDxChicago. Couple that with multiple Grammy Nominations and winning for Production on Chance The Rapper’s “Coloring Book,” one would be hard-pressed to find heights Segal has yet to reach. Despite an already well-established career, his smile has frequently gone unseen. All that luster he needed to take center stage is often spared for collaboration with others; Nico Segal’s latest solo project, “Tell the Ghost Welcome Home,” will serve as a Grand re-introduction to an artist of luminary presence and humble beginnings.
