Reminder: Ensure that your computer is up to date and has the necessary software loaded.

HEARTBEAT OF THE SOUL artists include:

Nick Colionne

Continuing to capture his creative mindset, vision and the ever-evolving artistry of his music with inspiring, thought-provoking album titles, Nick Colionne calls his latest album Finger Painting for the simple reason that he’s always visualized his Epiphone ES 175 premium guitar as a musical paintbrush painting all the colorful notes he plays. In 2018, he revealed the secret mindset behind his extraordinary impact. Keeping his incendiary, yet heartfelt mix of jazz, R&B, funk blues and soulful, seductive vocals fresh, funky and innovative every time out, he once again made it a blast Just Being Me.
