NICKY WILL




NickyWill (Nick Hargarther) is a suburban rapper/Pop artist from Rochester, New York, currently based
in Atlanta, Georgia. As a teenager, he began artfully crafting a unique style of lyrical flow to
accommodate his in-your-face delivery, drawing inspiration predominantly from the likes of mainstream
performers such as Eminem, Asher Roth and Ludacris. NickyWill’s first album, self titled, was released
independently, having been written and produced completely by NickyWill himself. The project was
well received by local critics, prompting NickyWill to immediately begin work on the 2010 release of his
second full length album, “On A Mission”. Utilizing the exposure opportunities of social networks such
as Facebook and Twitter, the album’s breakout single, holding the same name, gained recognition from
top promoters in Upstate New York, offering NickyWill various opportunities to perform alongside top
touring industry acts such as The Cataracs, Maino, Donnie Klang, MC Lars and Hoodie Allen.

After taking some time in 2011 to perform and promote himself as an artist within the underground rap
scene, NickyWill began constructing his most recent project, the “Write Around The Block” mixtape.
Wanting to make a true impact on the hip-hop community, NickyWill wrote and produced the album to
take influence from the roots of jazz, folk rock and blues, blending it with the contemporary sounds of
today’s rap. With the mixtape’s digital release in summer of 2012, NickyWill was praised equally for his
matured sound and the creativity of the instrumentals by a variety of critics in producers, DJs, artists and
most importantly, his fans.

Having successfully generated an underground buzz for his work, NickyWill has since begun to gauge the
interest of recognized talent management companies, agents and producers. Taking advantage of the
opportunity in fall of 2012, NickyWill moved to a larger market in Atlanta, Georgia, working closely with
top artist developers and Producer Brad Cox who is helping to ensure his upcoming breakout into the national spotlight.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
