Cosmicity is the project name for Detroit-based electronic musician Mark Nicholas. His music combines singer-songwriter melodies with synthesizers, drum machines, and deeply personal lyrics.
In the 1990s, 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 alongside 1980s acts like Alphaville and Anything Box, winning songwriting contests, and even placing music on a few television shows - such as the Matthew Fox series Haunted.
In addition to original compositions, Cosmicity has released cover songs such as "Bloc Bloc Bloc" by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, and "Automatic" by The Pointer Sisters. Original holiday-themed songs include "Halloween" and "This is Your Crappy Christmas Present".
