Twist Online : First of all, please introduce yourself to our readers.
Nicky Bondz: I’m Nick Garofalo aka Nicky Bondz. I’m an artist from Long Island, New York. I was a major athlete throughout my childhood and adolescence. Due to some sports injuries I am a recovered addict and am now residing in Atlanta creating fire music as a stimulating form of therapy which has truly helped me maintain sobriety and have a blast doing so!. I just released my latest project in August called Taking The Throne, which was inspired due to my love for the television series called “Game of thrones”. Music has always been a huge part of my life since I was a child thanks to my father who was very in tune to the hottest artist during the 90s : jay-z , biggie smalls , 2 pac , Eminem , the hot boyz , etc ! Therefore I was introduced to legendary artist at a very young at which had major impact on my taste for hip-hop. My father also loved house music which also have me a rich background in old school EDM . I am looking forward to creating more electronic style records in the future ,
