The SchizphreNick Lp is the debut project by Nicholas Bernardi. This concept album blurs the lines between satirical and earnest music. Nick pulls elements from Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock and R&B. It is painfully self-aware as he borrows, calls out, and alludes to themes and tropes from late 90s hip-hop (i.e. Slim Shady LP and Dr Dre), to build his simultaneous ironic/unironic approach on this body of work. The music evolves from melodically driven hip-hop to a circus of other genres. The tracks are poppy, self-indulgent, self-reflective, sometimes heartfelt, yet just as often tongue-in-cheek. The clever wordplay and catchy hooks keep the listener engaged from beginning to end. His music has been compared to Ben Folds, Lonely Island, Lil Dicky and Flight of the Conchords. It's the type of music you didn't know you needed in your life. So get it in your life.
So Far EP is the sophomore project from Nicholas Bernardi.
This project lands a little closer to his heart. Overall, he takes a more grounded approach toward his music but doesn't fully break from the self-effacing satirical tone. This project continues to blur genres and lands somewhere between R&B, Rap, and Pop.
