For over a decade Nick Costa has been a highly active musician from Minnesota’s Twin Cities, and he is showing no signs of slowing down. His music has been compared to the songwriting and guitar virtuosity of Jason Isbell and the quick-witted lyrics and clever chord progressions of Father John Misty. While others would describe his songs as smart, delicate, folk songs that border on Alt-Country, he would simply consider his own songs as “sad.”
Through the years, Costa has written 5 full length records and 3 EPs between his previous band The Person & The People and his old solo project under the moniker of Me As A Pilot. This year, he will release his debut solo album, Devastator. Costa is also currently a full time member of the Minneapolis rock and roll powerhouse The 4onthefloor and has contributed his songwriting and performance skills on countless records. Whether playing sold out concerts in the First Avenue main room or intimate underground shows, Nick always knows how to read the room.
