Nik Rael - Lead Vocals, Guitar, Blues Harp



Nik Rael has been singing and making music ever since he can remember. A founding member of Headsoup, a 90’s era psychedelic reggae-rock trio from Philadelphia, he released two studio albums with the band before striking out on his own in New York. After being signed by the independent Bermuda Reef Records, Nik recorded Worlds Fade Away in 2003 with noted producer and Van Morrison guitarist, John Platania, gaining him international airplay and recognition as a songwriter. In 2011, again with Platania, Rael released Winter ’61 a Bob Dylan tribute which landed him a 30 minute live special on 90.7 FM WFUV’s Sunday breakfast with Jonathan Platt as well as a headlining spot at Dylanfest, a Bob Dylan based music festival in Warwick, NY. Currently Nik performs regularly in the NY area in various configurations. Sometimes solo, sometimes a duo with guitarist Joe Plum, and often as a front man for the band Radio Flyer.
