Listen in: Spotify / Soundcloud / iTunes

Genre: Electropop, Indietronica


Nydge is a producer and songwriter from Detroit, MI. He was born in a hospital, and despite being named after a race car driver, he drives a reliable Honda Civic. He loves podcasts, but he hates the talkshow ones. He likes plants, but all of his plants are dead and he feels bad about it. He can replace the brake pads on your car. He knows more about synthesizers than he does about microeconomics. Like most of America, he dropped out of community college.

In summer 2017, He stepped out from a behind-the-scenes producer role and started releasing the tracks he's produced and co-written as the artist "Nydge".   Since beginning his steady release of singles, his music has been streamed over 3 million times and he's opened for acts like BANKS, SG Lewis, Flint Eastwood & Quinn XCII. With the help of Spotify's curated playlists (Alternative R&B, Young & Free, Indie-pop, etc), Nydge has received the attention of blogs and listeners alike and garnered the reputation of being "Another rare gem from Detroit, some wonderful collision of atoms. Straight chemical; the perfect high." (Indie Shuffle).  

Nydge has also placed and composed custom songs for TV and film, with placements ranging from Ford Mustang commercials to Hulu trailers, and he is played in retail stores around the world.

Shot in San Diego, the video is a heartfelt snapshot inside a turbulent but honest relationship, a perfect visual accompaniment to nydge & norty's Circumstances. For anyone who bore the heavier weight of a break-up, the song offers a reassuring hug on during the drive home. Written, Directed & Edited by Nico Poalillo & Allison Bunce.

Shot in and around a house alongside the Detroit River, the video beautifully interprets the struggles of identity and purpose within the cumbersome expectations of society, self and past. Written & Directed by Jay Curtis Miller & Corinne Wiseman.



Since first playing 2017's new year opening for Tunde Olaniran, nydge has twisted knobs, twiddled keys, struck drumpads and sang his danceable, head-bobbing songs to crowds.
