Nick D'Andrea hails from Columbus, OH. He started writing songs at age 16 and spent the next decade creating home recordings and pursuing a career in education. Four years ago, he decided to chase music full time and formed Nick D' & the Believers with two friends. Since then, they released 4 EP's, toured extensively and had songs featured over a dozen times on network television.

In 2016 he formed a new project, Doc Robinson, with Columbus based singer-songwriter Jon Elliott of The Floorwalkers. They released their debut EP Golden Daze in November, then released their first LP Deep End in July of 2017. His songwriting is deeply influenced by luminaries of songwriting like Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, and Leonard Cohen, as well as more contemporary artists from Wilco's Jeff Tweedy to The Tallest Man on Earth.

D’Andrea also collaborates regularly with Columbus non-profits the Dick and Jane Project and Music Loves Ohio, running songwriting and music production workshops in schools and summer programs throughout Columbus.
