NOMAD Is Indeed “THE” Career Musician


By Gary A. Johnson (January 28. 2022)

NOMAD is not only a career musician, he is “THE” Career Musician!  He is a veteran in the entertainment business with credits and experience that spans decades.

As a professional guitarist, he has worked and played with many of the most respected celebrity artists in music.  He remains committed to pushing the envelope and has broadened his career by seeking and securing opportunities in other facets of the industry; such as operating as Music Director for Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, composing for film and television, and oh yeah, creating a podcast to help musicians have a sustainable career in the music business.

NOMAD has worked and played for such legends as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Donny Osmond, Toni Braxton, Kem, Jewel, Colbie Caillat, Rodney Jerkins, David Foster, Walter A., Tommy Simms, Bernie Herms, Josh Groban, Toby Mac, and Leslie Odom Jr. to name a few.

His film credits are also a force to be reckoned with; recording for such titles as Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Lorax, Lilo and Stitch, Men In Black III, and Ferdinand.   His television credits like Who Do You Think You Are, Long Lost Family, The Bradshaw Bunch, Fast Foodies, Basketball Wives, and Gentified!

NOMAD’s musical style much like his Cuban/Italian heritage is a hybrid of genres – Pop, Rock, Latin, Soul, Classical, Funk and Jazz.  Although the guitar being his primary instrument, NOMAD is fluent in over 2 dozen
stringed and fretted instruments.

NOMAD’s compositions are in circulation in over 300 TV shows, commercials, films, as well as chart topping albums. This is indeed the work of a Career Musician.

In his career he’s been fortunate enough to work with iconic composers such as, Danny Elfman (Men in Black 3), John Powell (Ferdinand, Happy Feet 1 & 2, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), and A.R. Rahman.

Culminating a lifetime of experience, NOMAD’s latest endeavor is THE CAREER MUSICIAN; a podcast highlighting interviews with other industry professionals, providing insight and practical wisdom for the next generation of aspiring career musicians.

NOMAD is guest hosting a webinar next week with Michael Elsner on Tues, Feb 1 @ 8:30pm EST / 7:30pm CST / 5:30pm PST.

They will be discussing everything that goes into becoming a CAREER MUSICIAN, including: Recording, Performing, Songwriting and Sync Licensing!  Click on the above flyer to sign up.
