Nick Colionne

The title of Nick Colionne’s highly anticipated KOCH Records debut says it all about the charismatic Chicago-based guitarist’s rich, sizzling mix of jazz, R&B, funk, blues and seductive vocals. In his hard-grooving, supremely soulful world where he’s always, to quote the title of his hit 2006 album, Keepin’ It Cool, there are truly No Limits.

“I went into the project with the mindset of doing a record that was more diverse than any I have done previously.” Colionne says. “I like to call No Limits an adventure because I wanted to explore doing some different things with my music and not limit myself to one genre or style of playing. I’m playing over some different grooves, setting some unique moods and incorporating sounds from other genres, but I’m still staying true to who I am. There’s still my own vibe on the guitar shining through. Besides exploring my passion as a vocalist more than ever before, I wanted No Limits to be a closer reflection of the diversity and spirit of my live shows.”
