Nicholas Edward Hertzberg is a South New Jersey born musician and artist currently residing in Burlington County. Starting in music at the age of 8, he quickly went from playing saxophone in school band to guitar in punk bands at the brink of his teenage years. He has spent the time since getting his stripes performing in a wide variety of projects, covering a very broad scope of musical genres. From punk bands like the long-running These Branches, to his current projects, keeping things atypical has always been in Nick’s forethought of creation.
Besides working on his solo material, Nicholas currently performs in the bands Parch, Reconstitute, Balding, and Like-Minded. He is currently collaborating on tracks with artists such as Cait Darcy, writing interlude material for U.K. duo Ovvls, and is working on soundtrack music with a few different organizations. Despite all of this, he is always looking to collaborate with new artists. In the spring of 2013, he started the online and limited physical release record label “Deplorable Sounds.” Since then, he has released over fifteen solo or side-project albums for free digitally, or on cassette tape- including seven in 2016 alone. His most recent releases are seeing a shift in focus from more “standard” instrumentation and structures to more highly improvised, experimental ambient and electronic creations.
N.E. Hertzberg's latest album, Enough Rope, was released August 4th, 2017 with Analog Cowboy Records. Follow up collaborative efforts and releases from other projects will be debuting in early 2018. Performances supporting these releases, as well as gigs with his other projects, will also be much more frequent in the coming months.
