Derek Nicoletto is a Featured Artist this week on Reverbnation.
The band and I are so psyched, going into rehearsal now for Friday's show, to see that one of our goals was met, getting on Rdio's "Heavy Rotation" on our first day! Thank you all for listening!!! We are glad you are connecting with the album.
Derek's second solo record, "Just Panic And Get It Over With," releases today. First to post, the lovely folks at Rdio.
"Some of you may remember Derek Nicoletto from his band Telling on Trixie. As a solo act, Nicoletto favors synth-pop with all of its dance-music associations. Picking up where his 2011 solo debut left off, on the six-song EP Just Panic and Get It Over With (7 Trick Pony), Nicoletto serves up big beats on the royally funky “Kings Are We.” It’s the kind of exhilarating song you can strut around the dance floor to like the big queen that you are. “F5” keeps the dance-party panic going and your heart rate racing. “Mother Numb It” dips into the drum’n bass pool and comes up dripping dizzying beats. “Blink of an Eye,” the sexiest cut, has spring dance anthem written all over it, while “Hell in Gramercy” indicates that Nicoletto hasn’t abandoned his harder-edged side." - Gregg Shapiro, OutSmart Magazine (Apr 01, 2013)
Electropop singer Derek Nicoletto says he doesn’t want his forthcoming “Just Panic and Get it Over With” to be a routine album release — he wants it to be the soundtrack for a “worldwide art movement.” And so he appears to be well on his way, having wrangled artists from around the globe to make works inspired by the EP, which he plans to exhibit in a series of group exhibitions in Honolulu, Manchester, Provincetown, and beyond, beginning July 12-14 at 287 Spring Galleryin New York.
For the inaugural show, three-dozen local artists created works in just about every medium, all referencing the new album in some way. (The only restriction was that Nicoletto himself not appear as the subject.) Most works will be available for sale, at prices set by the artists, throughout the weekend.
“Just Panic and Get it Over With” hits stores April 16.

Four weeks until the release of the new EP, Just Panic and Get It Over With, until the release of my first video for the first single off the record (both on April 16th) and our CD release show at Arlene's Grocery on April 19th. Below, a little scene from the video filmed at Gibson Guitar Studios at the Hit Factory, directed by Josh Stoddard. For any musicians out there, I highly recommend Euphoria Studios for a rehearsal space. We love it and can't believe we haven't been using it until now. Below, some pictures.

Derek will release his second solo record, "Just Panic And Get It Over With," in Spring 2013.
