11 years since making Japan his home, Nelson feels like he has finally found a place and a sound he calls his own. Although he has found some success in the music industry as an English lyricist, English producer/supervisor and songwriter for artists like SEKAI NO OWARI and The Bawdies, along the way he stopped creating and performing his own original music. Until now, that is.
With his BCMC (Babin-Coy Music Collective) family, he is in the middle of making his return to music as a solo artist. “ToThe Ocean” sings of self-realization and acceptance. “Shadows” and “The Best Mistake” share similar stories of love a little bit under the influence. “3:00am” is about those melancholic nights when we feel so alone and so in love at the same time.
Now, Nelson is set to make his feature film debut with the Japanese film Nikaidokei Monogatari, a family drama that will make its debut at the Nara International Film Festival in September and then released to audiences nationwide on January 25th, 2019. What better time to make a return to his love of creating and performing music, only now with the confidence of a 10-year music industry vet.
11 years after moving to Japan with a bank account of $100, a maxed-out credit card, $80,000 of student debt, and nothing but a dream to find success in Japan, Nelson has finally reached the start line.
