"Flamenco sensation Nocy conjures up images of travel and romance with his love and mastery of the guitar."
Pure energy aptly defines the soulful, rhythmic classical guitar wizardry of Nocy on his dazzling worldwide debut on Somerset Entertainment.
Hailed as an "Orchestra on Six Strings" by the Pasadena weekly, Nocy's rich harmonic textures and lightning-fast play simulate the sounds of many instruments. "I want to make this guitar play like a Saxophone, like drums like congas…you name it, because nobody ever has."
Schooled at the Paris Conservatory for Classical Guitar, Nocy has headlined festivals and concerts worldwide. He has performed and recorded with a myriad of artists such as David Foster, Jon Anderson from the rock group Yes, Gypsy Kings, Paul Anka, Rod Stewart, Kenny G, Larry Coryell, Tom Jones, and has accompanied acclaimed Gypsy Guitarist Manitas de Plata.
