Alternative Soul-Folk that speaks to the heart & soul of Mankind.
Nicholas Mrozinski is a vibrant, dynamic and multi-talented singer/songwriter from Saint Paul, MN. Nicholas is making music that is connecting with people, all around the world, on a deeply human level. Nicholas’ music is fully integrated, incorporating many schools of music and thought. His truly unique sound, typically described as “Alternative Soul-Folk” or “Conscious Global Pop” is passionate, intelligent, and captivating. His powerful voice, enriching lyrics, and liquid piano playing truly set him apart and are the reason Skope Magazine calls him “an authentic artist of this millennium.”
Nicholas’ latest project, the hugely successful charity album, The Minnesota Beatle Project, has him in heavy rotation on 89.3, The Current. His rendition of The Beatles classic “Across the Universe” has been receiving multiple daily spins since December of 2009. The album was also the #1 seller for many weeks at Electric Fetus. To date, over $50,000 has been raised to help keep music programs alive in Minnesota Public Schools.
Recently Nicholas has been the voice of Artic Cat and the YMCA, doing voice-over work for national Television and Radio ad campaigns. Nicholas also has a talent for drawing. He offers a free print with every CD purchased at his live shows. Nicholas is also working on a book.
Nicholas’ first three albums came with critical acclaim, but—with some big time help, and a ton of steam—it is his latest album, “Together We’re Stronger”, that delivers some truly great songs. In 2008 we watched Nicholas lose over 100+ pounds and perform over 150+ shows. This newfound energy, passion, and momentum brought All-Star Minnesota musicians out of the woodwork to be a part of his new album. “Together We’re Stronger” is not only a representation of the times we all currently face together, but also a validation of the thriving local Twin Cities music scene. The players contributing to the album span over 40+ local bands, unofficially dubbed “The Feelin Orchestra” after Mrozinski’s nickname “The Feelin”.
The way everybody came together to contribute like this really makes the album name ring HOME. It also says a lot about Nicholas’ individual talents. Ask any of the contributing musicians and they’ll tell you that Nicholas’ music is special. Referring to his “global and magnetizing voice,” Rift Magazine believes he is “a chosen one”. Budgeteer News discovered that his’ “music draws you in, and keeps you fixated from the first note. It’s like falling in love with music all over again.” Summing it up is The Duluth News Tribune who proclaims, “This man is capable of producing such a warm sound, you’d swear you were sitting in front of an open flame.”
Nicholas and his own Label, Wake the World, are among an emerging trend of Conscious-Capitalists and Eco-Entrepreneurs. Giving back, connecting and sharing are as big a part of their business model as turning a profit. As they build and strive to maintain a position where they can help others, they put the world’s interests equal to their own. All of their CD packaging and mailings feature “green” design, using only recycled materials and FSC certified products. Nicholas and his label are actively seeking to connect with other like-minded organizations, Charities, and individuals – and are openly seeking volunteer opportunities.
Mrozinski and Wake the World, plan on releasing ten albums over the next five years. Mrozinski has already amassed hundreds of original songs, making his ambitious plan a very achievable goal.
