In a Nutshell
"The Paul McCartney of Reno" -
Mike Sion, The Reno Gazette Journal
Nick Eng is a singer-songwriter and recording artist from the Biggest Little City of Reno, Nevada. Eng's music is the epitome of driving and jangly pop-rock topped off with a shimmering polish. Along with his catchy compositional skills, he also plays a plethora of instruments, including guitar, bass, piano, drums, and of course, his vocal cords.
As a songwriter, Eng’s heart has remained prominently stitched on his sleeve for better or for worse, lyrically and emotionally teetering between heartfelt and earnest ear-charmers, to cynical and biting expressions of a young man hurt by others and himself.
As a performer, his nose-to-the-grindstone attitude and penchant for wit and professionalism have served him well. Beginning in musical theatre, talent shows and choirs as a child and teenager, Eng has worked tirelessly as an independent and freelance musician on the West Coast since 2015, amassing hundreds of live shows under his belt in the process. He's graced stages at summer music festivals, rowdy hipster bars, and smoke-filled casino cabarets and clubs both with his band and on his own.
He has released two studio albums: One self-titled in 2018 and Long Shot in 2019. Both albums have received critical praise and have garnered over 50,000 streams worldwide, as well as selling out multiple times in physical formats.
His pop confections have reached fans and audiences not just in the United States, but also the United Kingdom, Spain, Australia, France, and even Japan. He has become a recognized musician locally and abroad while receiving regular radio spins, continuous streams, news accolades, and songwriter awards.
Eng regularly performs and tours in Northern Nevada and the West Coast, and has shared the stage with acclaimed, fellow independent artists including Dante Elephante, BOYO, Anton Barbeau, and Mo Troper.
