Nic Gonzales was born and raised in Austin, Texas. He was involved with music at a very young age. At age 7, he started experimenting with different instruments. After attempting to play piano, drums, and bass, Nic began to play the guitar at age 15, which he felt most confident with, “It felt right”, says Nic. Then after a few years of playing guitar, he found himself leading worship at church. This was the platform that launched his career and enabled him to travel around the world with his guitar and voice.
Nic started the band with his cousin Josh Gonzales and his brother Art Gonzales. This band evolved into what we know today as, Salvador. Nic was 21 when Salvador inked their first record deal with Word Records.
Nic now lives in Nashville, TN with his wife Jaci Velasquez, and their two boys, Zealand and Soren. He’s been honored to have several endorsements with companies such as: Rittenhouse Guitars: http://www.rittenhouseguitars.com/, Fender: http://www.fender.com/, and Gibson: http://www.gibson.com/ to name a few.
Nic is also Vice-President of The Salvador Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps the people in South America to have shelter, education, and a sense of hope. To read more about The Salvador Foundation, please visit: http://www.salvadorfoundation.org/
