Cosmicity is the project name for Detroit-based electronic musician Mark Nicholas. His music combines singer-songwriter melodies with fluttering synthesizers, beefy drum machines, and deeply personal lyrics.
In the 90's, as a student at the University of Michigan School of Music and Technology, Nicholas released his first full-length album "The Vision". Since that time, Cosmicity has become one of the best-known artists in the so-called synthpop underground, most notably as a founding artist on the iconic synthpop record label A Different Drum. His accomplishments have included playing large synthpop festivals along-side 80's icons like Alphaville and Anything Box, as well as selling tens of thousands of albums.
During the years spanning 2006-2009, Mark Nicholas released two albums under his given name, dropping the Cosmicity project name so he could embrace more industrial sounds - and darker lyrics - but he has since returned to releasing music as Cosmicity.
2012 brought the release of the "Parlour Sofas" EP, hailed by many as Mark's most accomplished release to date. That same year Cosmicity received acclaim for a remix-contest-winning version of The Bird and the Bee's single "Heard It On The Radio".
The end of 2014 brought the release of a new full-length album called "Humans May Safely Graze". The early reaction has been huge, quickly driving the release into the top 25 on Amazon's Electronica chart, and the top 100 of iTunes Electronic chart.
