In his youth, Nicolas Bearde played his music so loud his mother thought that maybe he was deaf-or would soon be. What he couldn’t explain to her or his friends was how that music made him feel. You see, this was a man born singing mean, really. And music affects him in ways that he can’t exactly explain, even now. He loves to HEAR it, he loves to SING it. Sometimes a passage might bring him to the verge of tears. It gets to him that much sometimes. How do you explain that to anyone?
 
Maybe its just love after all. This music that has influenced him for so much of his life is the music of Motown and Stax and Blue Note and the music of great singers like Lou Rawls, Johnny Mathis and Dionne Warwick and so many other legendary singers and musicians. One huge influence has been working with his friend and mentor, the great Bobby McFerrin. He has toured for years with McFerrin and is one of the original members of the noted A Capella group Voicestra. And though Nicolas roots are primarily R&B, the freedom of jazz and improvisation colours all that he does.
 
All About Love is his latest album and is a personal testimonial to the joys and heartbreak of love. In it, he explores the many manifestations of that most enigmatic of emotions. On this outing, Nicolas gives a nod to some of his favourite contemporary composers and sweetens the set with seven of his own original compositions. All About Love opens with a sparkling arrangement of the Burt Bacharach classic You’ll Never Get To Heaven (If You Break My Heart) produced by guitarist, Chris Camozzi. Lush and romantic, Wild Is The Wind follows with enough exotic heat to set your soul one fire. And with songs ranging from the deep, spiritual love exemplified in John Coltranes classic composition Naima, to mankind’s search for peace and equality-eloquently portrayed in Donny Hathaway’s Trying Times- Nicolas puts his heart on the line for all to see. All About Love also pays homage to those classic summer jams and the raw soul singles of the seventies in Nicolas original party piece Summer Sunday. And for the lovers, get ready for some late night, soul grabbing lovin with the steamy, old school romanticism of originals like Love Me and One Look At You. Make no mistake, it’s about music and it’s All About Love.- Expansion
