About this Artist
Nick Pagan is a Latinx crooner, composer, psychonaut, storyteller, and an old soul. Rooted in the past with a finger on the pulse of the future, Pagan describes his sound as “new-wop”—colorful sonic palettes, catchy hooks, and classic sounds ripe to be sampled.
Pagan’s debut single, “No Mames,” premiered on the world-famous KROQ. His music has been Today's Top Tune on KCRW, has premiered in publications like Remezcla and Talkhouse, and has been featured in Netflix's Élite and Todo Va A Estar Bien.
Nick Pagan is a true Californio: with ancestral roots in Baja California, Nick was born in Los Angeles, raised in San Diego, and came of age in San Francisco. This run of shows with Calexico is Nick’s triumphant return to the golden-state cities which formed him and his sound.
