“BEAT100 gave me exposure to people who wouldn’t otherwise find my music,” says Nick

Recent recipient of a BEAT100 ‘Ultimate Musician’ award, 23-year-old hip-hop and pop artist, Nick Luebke, has quickly become a hit among members of the BEAT100 music video social network. Nick received Ultimate Musician status following an upload of original song, ‘End of the Road’, to the BEAT100 Original Music Video Chart; a song that was “inspired by my college graduation and the feelings it sparked,” says Nick. ‘End of the Road’, co-produced by KonG and Kyle Schlienger, received a BEAT100 Gold Song, Video, and Favorite award from the BEAT100 A&R Team. Having recently released his EP, ‘The Search’, which reached #47 in the iTunes Pop charts, Nick is currently on his first nationwide tour with singer, SoMo, while performing his original songs and showcasing his talent as a musician.
“I’ve been singing ever since I could talk,” says Nick, “One night, I recorded some vocals on a friend’s microphone and sent the recording to my older sisters. They bought me a microphone two years ago… and that was basically the start of all this.” Growing up, Nick says he loved exploring rap music, but also enjoyed the catchy radio pop songs he heard as well. As a result, his style has emerged as an organic blend of hip-hop and pop, sometimes resembling the unique sound of artists such as B.o.B., containing catchy pop choruses and instrumental elements combined with hip-hop beats and rap. In addition, Nick maintains true-to-life lyrical themes throughout his songs, resulting in catchy and relevant lyrics. “I like to write about feelings that I’m currently having because that makes it easy to get descriptive and add in details that make the song interesting,” says Nick. “I hate when artists make music about stuff that obviously isn’t true or hasn’t really happened to them,” he adds.
Four shows into his current tour, Nick is performing with his DJ and co-producer, KonG, while increasing his experience on the stage. “The rush is amazing while you’re on stage, but there is always room for improvement,” says Nick. Having released his EP, ‘The Search’, fans can support Nick by purchasing the album on iTunes or downloading it for free on his Facebook page. “The main goal is to have people hear my music, so I don’t mind giving it out for free,” he says.
