Nick Schinder Professional songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist & producer Nick Schinder, also founding member of Deep River Running (a partnership with lyricist Jacqui Doherty) - has toured the world playing both originals and covers to the highest standard, released 8 albums of original music, and contributed to countless projects with his session and production skills, both for signed (Sony) and unsigned artists, and praised even by Peter Gabriel. In 2001, he and his band The Child got to be one of the 20 finalists of the 1st Ibero- American Contest of Internet Music, organised by Universal Music. Altogether 2700 musicians participated, from all over Latin America, Spain and even the U.S.A. They’ve also reached the semi-finals of the First Latin-American Beatle Week, by playing their own special versions of some of Beatles songs. In 2002, Nick moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he would usually played at many classic music venues, such as Kennedy, London Pub, La Ruta dels Elefants, El Forum and Maremagnum. In 2003 they reached the semifinals of the Demo Project organized by the International Festival of Benicassim, 2003, one of the greatest festivals in pop, electro and the indie scene in continental Europe. In 2007, Nick moved to London, where he toured the UK intensively (The Marquee Club, The Comedy, The Long Acre, Bull & Gate, Hope & Anchor, The Water Rats, Storm, Sound, The Dublin Castle, The Bullet Bar,). In 2008, Nick Schinder meets Jacqui Doherty (lyricist) and together they create Deep River Running. They have released 3 albums under that name (2009’s homonymous, 2011’s “Revolutions For The Soul” and 2013’s “One Turn Around The Sun”), all available world-widely on all streaming platforms. In 2010, the animated video for their single “Don’t Give It Up” (directed by renowned Mexican director Fernando Leal) generates an interesting buzz on internet. On the same year, one of Nick’s singles, “My Song”, is included as first track on Raul Gomez (winner of Spain’s most popular singing TV contest and followed by millions of viewers)’s debut album, released by EMI/Sony. In 2015, Nick is resident piano man of The Piano Works, in Farringdon, London, playing up to 4 nights a week in what is widely regarded as one of the best live venues in town. As of 2017 Nick lives and plays regularly in Oxford as resident piano man of the town's most popular piano bar, Sandy's.

Paul H, 1 year ago

Booked Nick and his band for our wedding in Oxfordshire and I can't praise them enough for their musical contribution to the day. They were totally professional, extremely talented and were, without doubt, the 'icing on the cake' for our celebrations. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him and them if you have such an occasion coming up. Thank you Nick for making our day so special.
