Los Angeles, California, Friday, September 29, 2017 — Today, Nomad Group drops a stripped-down, acoustic version of Nick Dean’s single, “How Did We?,” placing him in a class of contemporaries such as Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Ed Sheeran. “How Did We? (Stripped)” is available now on all streaming platforms.

Co-produced and co-written by Nick and longtime collaborator Mike Miller, the inspiration for the song is simple. Nick says, “There's ironically something memorable about the nights you don't remember.” On why a stripped version of the song, “I wanted to take the opportunity to get back to my roots as a guitar player. I'd been playing long before I could produce or even write music. My dad taught me when I was 5, and it's what got me into music in general. For this, I left my little tricks and production tools out of the picture.”

The recording’s Top 40 sound supports an infectious pop melody and Sheeran-esque lyrics like, “You’re trying to find a way out of here with me but we’re falling to our knees. If I could only find out what was in-between…”

"How Did We?” presents Nick Dean combining his experiences drawn from his childhood, his time with both X Factor and Global Entertainment while strongly asserting his new creative vision. That vision was partly molded by his nomadic upbringing, complete with adventures, mostly via motorcycle, spanning the globe, combined with the photography and videography projects that led to vital content contributions to marketing campaigns with Audi, Away Travel and SubPac, and a recent trip to Italy for a photography job with Brandy Melville, along with various trips to countries around the world (most recently to Guatemala) to help his mother with her humanitarian organization GoPhilanthropic. His recent video work includes Ryan Riback’s “One Last Time” lyric video, music video for Burak Yeter x Ryan Riback - GO 2.0, in London shooting live video footage of Epic Records signing Starley, and most recently in Paris, where he filmed the music video for the single. He is currently home in Los Angeles before he begins his travels again, this time hitting New York, possibly San Francisco, and Bali, Indonesia!

Nick Dean is an alternative-pop singer/songwriter/producer and filmmaker. His early years were unconventional—living and traveling abroad, creating music, and having the freedom to exist on a “road less traveled.” When he was 5, Nick’s family abandoned the typical American lifestyle for a simpler one in the South of France. The family settled in the small, rural farming village of Vernègues, where they immersed themselves in the local language and life. During their years abroad, Nick traveled extensively across North Africa, Central America and Asia, where his mother laid the foundation for a humanitarian organization she would later create. Discovering his passion for music early on, Nick capitalized on this wide range of audiences, finding his way onto small stages in local bars in Cuba and Costa Rica. When he was 8 years old, Nick became a lead soloist with a renowned, internationally touring boys choir in France, traveling around Europe and Guadeloupe/Martinique.

Nick’s parents eventually decided to move the family back to the United States, settling in Rochester, N.Y. Having grown up in a cozy, rural school of 100 pupils in Provence, the now 11-year-old, French-speaking boy found it difficult to adjust to public school life. Preferring a freer, foreign life of homeschooling on the road, he jumped at the chance to join his family on a four-month humanitarian journey through Southeast Asia. Back in his comfort zone, Nick taught himself to ride a motorcycle, strapped his guitar to his back, and played for audiences in orphanages, hill tribes, rural schools and bars in northern Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.

Upon returning to the U.S., Nick continued to be homeschooled, committing himself fully to music. On weekends, the young teen could be found playing at the local public market. It was in Rochester that Nick met his current collaborator and co-producer, Mike Miller. At the age of 14, Nick auditioned for Season 1 for The X Factor USA, making it to the final 12 of the show. In 2013, Nick moved to Los Angeles, where he continued writing music and began learning the art of production so he could create his own sound. After brief stints in a few developing bands, and as the youngest signed producer/songwriter for Global Entertainment USA at age 18, he found his career going in the wrong direction. He decided to start again, from scratch. To earn money, he worked in the stock room at a clothing store in Santa Monica, where he began connecting with a band of innovative, local content creators. Nick took a page out of their books, widening his radius as a creator through video and photography.

Throughout those years, Nick craved a return to the nomadic life, no doubt born from his unconventional upbringing. He began spending his time exploring new places on his motorcycle, both in the U.S. and overseas, all the while growing as an artist, photographer, and videographer. In a short period of time, Nick found himself shooting content pieces for the likes of Audi, Away Travel, and SubPac. He reconnected with Mike Miller, and the two began working on a new musical sound, all co-written/produced.

Young and ambitious, Dean fell in love with his unique brand of 360 art form. Staying true to his ultimate goal, he began using his talents to launch his own career as a recording artist, funding his project via his work with brands and projects for other artists.
