Australian songwriter Nick de la Hoyde recently popped into Baeble HQ, performing sensitive, acoustic versions of his genre-bending, atmospheric pop for our newest Baeble NEXT Session. De la Hoyde started writing music at the age of 16 while pursuing a football career in Barcelona. Living on his own at such a young age, Barcelona was admittedly a tough time for de la Hoyde. He didn't speak Spanish, he spent a lot of time journaling, and one day started turning those scribblings into raps, and eventually song.

With a belief in his new creative output and the support of his family, de la Hoyde chose to hang up his cleats and pursue a musical career; a wise choice as his YouTube and Spotify pages have exploded with hundreds of thousands of plays over the last couple of years. Digging through the trap-like sound of "Never Gonna Beg For It" and more straight-forward pop vibes of "Thinking Bout You", it's easy to hear why he's racking up the hits. His style comes from a variety of angles, mixing hip hop, rock, alternative, R&B, and spoken word. That's just what happens when you come from a multi-cultural family and have spent a good portion of your life circling the globe.

In our session, de la Hoyde pairs the songs down to their acoustic roots. Joined by his producer (and brother) on guitar, this NEXT session reveals a glimpse of what de la Hoyde's music first sounded like when he started writing in that Catalonian apartment. Thinking bout Nick yet? After watching this you will be.
