Show love to everyone you meet, because you don’t know what they’re going through or where they’ve come from.”
This is the guiding principle for TALK’s life. The singer-songwriter is a mass of positive energy, colour and enthusiasm, bringing a smile to the face of everyone he connects with.
Born Nicholas Durocher and raised in Ottawa, Canada, TALK is a multi-instrumental wizard, trained in piano, guitar, drums, bass, banjo, harmonica and even the mandolin. Growing up with a director and cameraman for a father and a brother on Broadway, Durocher was built for the spotlight. In an era where many artists use mystery as a marketing tactic, TALK is in your face. He’s eccentric, flashy and colourful. He’d rather make his own gold sequin cape than wear a designer outfit. As Durocher explains, “TALK is me saying ‘I don’t care what anyone thinks, I’m going to be bright, beautiful and, most importantly, myself.’”
He’s crafted a sound equally unique. Inspired by artists like Elton John, Freddie Mercury and Guns N Roses, TALK is a modern rockstar. He’s bright and bold with a powerful voice. He writes, plays on and produces his own tracks, only bringing them to the studio for final touch ups — a rarity in today’s pop music space.
TALK launched himself on a rocket with his debut single “Run Away to Mars”. Originally written at 3am when TALK was feeling isolated and lonely, the song has connected with listeners all over the world: earning tens of millions of streams, hundreds of thousands of social followers, and rising to #1 on the Spotify Global Viral 50.
