One of the only known constants in the universe is transformation. All that is was and will some day again be something else. Nico Rivers is a Boston-based indie-rock singer/songwriter with a knack for transformation.


Since hitting the road as a solo artist in 2011, Rivers has released 3 EPs, 1 full-length record and toured throughout the US & Europe including stops at many festivals and events including SXSW, SS Cape May, Club Passim’s Campfire. Festival and many more.


In 2016, Rivers began working with a core of musicians known as The Black Grass. The formation of the group, as well as the songs, is under a constant state of evolution, but regularly features Emily Graham-Handley on vocals/percussion, Alex Giorgetti on guitar/vocals & Antonio Macomber on Bass.
