Nicky Scorpio is a Singer, Songwriter, Photographer and Videographer from Berkeley, CA. Nicky was raised in the Bay Area and has had the opportunity to be mentored by healers and teachers who believe in holistic healing and ancient wisdom. Nicky spent 6 years in NYC after leaving the Bay Area, where he would meet producer and poet Kyriaki in a recording studio in Hell’s Kitchen. Nicky traveled back to California to Los Angeles to pursue a creative vision with Kyriaki. It would be in Los Angeles where the duo would create the band and brand, The Sophisticated Psychos. It was also in Los Angeles where Nicky would really get to know himself and create his vision for his life’s work. Through different forms of meditation, yoga, and other forms of holistic healing, Nicky started learning about the “blind spots” in his life and the patterns, choices and vicious cycles he was caught in. By facing himself and doing this internal work, Nicky felt it was important to record this journey and to teach ways of healing and to be a voice for people facing anxiety and depression.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
