Nick LaVelle is the essence of a modern-day R&B artist: singer, songwriter, record label owner, real estate agent and exotic dancer. He’s killing the game and it’s the only way that he knows how. The Aries nation, crooning womanizer is the new wave of music, lifestyle and entrepreneurship through a very exciting, spontaneous and entertaining lens — and it’s just now beginning to all unfold.

Whether it was the extraordinary vocals of LaVelle’s songstress mother around their home or the community of music that he was exposed to while singing in his childhood’s church choir. Growing up behind the pulpit not only sharpened his vocal chops for studio sessions to come, but also ignited a serious desire to consider music not as just something to do on Sunday; but could very well be his lifestyle.

By 2012, LaVelle had garnered enough leverage in the musical streets of The D to start making his own moves to conquer the music industry. Tapping musical peer DX, the producer, the duo gave legs to what was once just a dream and turned into reality – and it sucked! But LaVelle knows that when we reveal, we heal; and that’s just what he did and started anew.

With a fresh look on music, Nick took his process back a few steps, decided to save money, be creative and pre-record his ideas, demos in his car. His determination outweighed his musical naivety and it became his go-to. And if he wasn’t serving up melodies with the engine running, LaVelle was working, a full-time student and also drove two hours from Kalamazoo to Detroit just to hit the stu for a full session.

The unspeakable dedication to his budding career started to take a turn for the better and there was really no stopping the blessings in store! It was while LaVelle was at college that he dropped some new heat and the student body went bananas! With a viral hit song on campus and the support from his brothers in the Iota Phi Theta fraternity, it was up, stuck and never coming down.

With evolution comes adversity and with three baby mamas comes — peace, surprisingly! While loving on his kids, copping the latest foreign and making serious money moves in real estate, LaVelle is using every chance he gets to extend his musical genius while making a difference for his little ones as every Black father desires. Nothing more. Nothing less. Just, Nick LaVelle.
