A rising Cleveland-based punk/hip-hop recording artist, singer, and guitarist who is hell-bent on a crusade to crush the scourge of opioid addiction & offer hope to those afflicted through his powerful music and lyrics.
With roots in NYC, NOMAD found music early on in life, experimenting with the Screamo scene, playing in clubs throughout CT, NY and NJ, until his great friend and talented drummer threw himself in front of subway train under the influence of opioids. After a 7 year hiatus, and a decade of sobriety, NOMAD burst back on the music scene with a distinctive sound that transcends genres, transporting the listener with NOMADs visceral emotion, charisma, and noble mission to save lives from one of the most devastating and insidious crises of our time.
