Story

Nick Eijkemans (Nick-Y) first started playing guitar at the age of eighteen. With a couple of friends he started a alternative post-rock band called Deliria (Formerly known as Infernal Agony). The band has stopped at the moment, but Nick is still recording the music for their first album. While he was playing in that band, he also learned to sing and to play bass and keys. With those experiences he joined a new band called Mistaken for strangers. He currently is their lead guitarist and backing vocalist. Everyday he is searching for new projects and bands he can work with to gain more experience, knowledge and connections in the music business.
