EMINENCE ENSEMBLE
EMINENCE ENSEMBLE
While Eminence Ensemble’s musicianship impresses most, it’s their ability to cross and bend genres so fluidly, meticulously and with purpose that sends fans on a unique journey. The 6-piece band takes you down the rabbit hole with soulful vocals and playful lyrics to reach new levels of transcendence. EE waits for no one and their tenacity is real. Despite attempts at categorizing Eminence Ensemble, the band has interest and heart for every genre and has devoted its craft to making you feel as if you too are a part of the journey. When you attend an Eminence show, you’ll hear influences from 80's hard rock, 70's soul and funk and 00's R&B. Their live shows are hard to pinpoint, as streamlined as they are unique, light-hearted as they are dark, but never boring. The Denver-based sextet has performed at Electric Forest, Euphoria Music Festival, The Werk Out, Friendly Gathering and more. Eminence Ensemble is more than just a rock band, they’re a rock band who jams with heart and soul.

Nikolai
Biography
Don’t Do Ordinary.

A recent graduate from the Virginia Military Institute, Nikolai has been making music since before he can remember. Born in Richmond, Virginia, to immigrant parents from both Denmark and South Africa, “Nik” had the opportunity of traveling and experiencing different cultures from a young age.
So, combine worldly exposure with musical influences from the likes of Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, and Outkast, and you get a unique hip hop sound exclusively from Nikolai.

Rewind to 2012, Nikolai matriculated into the Virginia Military Institute with the hopes of one day entering the military. He survived the grueling first year (“Rat Year”), and came away with a new attitude towards how he wanted to live his life. Free.
During his sophomore year at VMI, he was able to study abroad in Madrid, Spain. While abroad, Nikolai found a studio in the city within walking distance, and decided to lay a few tracks down for fun. It was through those few months and the experience of making those songs at Rec Division studio in Madrid, that proved to Nikolai, a life of music was a life he wanted to achieve. Those 5 songs would later be Nikolai’s first publicly heard releases on SoundCloud.

Following his Junior year, Nikolai released his first mixtape, “Summer Furlough”, which received plays and praise from the local Richmond scene. RVAmag.com called it “very honest, humble, and appreciative of the moment and opportunity to share it with the listener.”
After graduating from VMI in May 2016, Nikolai immediately began working on his second project, “Expressions”, which has just recently been released.

With his unique hip hop sound and optimistic attitude, Nikolai is determined to bring good vibes and good music to his fans.
