“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.
TALK is eccentric, flashy and colourful, and 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. TALK launched himself on a rocket with his debut single “Run Away to Mars”. Originally written at 3am on a lonely night, the song has connected with listeners all over the world: earning 125+ million of streams ,rising to #1 on the Spotify Global Viral 50, and hitting platinum and gold certifications in Canada, Sweden, Norway and more.
He followed the single with the "TALK To Me" EP, which earned praise from American Songwriter, People, Complex and more, and performed on the Late Late Show with James Corden. His music has been synced several times, including twice in in Grey’s Anatomy. He’s sold out shows across North America and in 2023 is supporting major artists including Shania Twain, Imagine Dragons, Young The Giant, Milky Chance.
Now, TALK is developing his debut album with a close team of collaborators, including hitmaker Justin Tranter. The sound will showcase his diverse talents, ranging from emotional ballads to massive stadium anthems full of love and passion.
