Nick Mintenko

Nick Mintenko is a professional musician from Victoria BC.
He completed his Diploma in Jazz Studies at the Victoria Conservatory of Music in 2013.
Since graduating Nick has toured, recorded, and performed with Mildly Wild (2013) and West My Friend (2015), as well, he released his own album (2017)

Always writing, and with an instrument in his hands.

In April 2017 Nick partnered with Stonebridge/Furch Guitars. Inspired by his new instrument, Nick wasted no time in recording an acoustic EP that includes just his voice and guitar. Look for a release in June 2017.

In March 2017 Nick released his first solo album "What I Thought I Knew" in affiliation with a charity that Nick supports, I Challenge Diabetes. The album received positive reviews from Grayowl Point and Ride The Tempo. The title track garnered the honors of being the #5 song of the week for the second week of January 2017 on Ride The Tempo's charts.

In January 2016 West My Friend recorded their third original album "Quiet hum". David Travers-Smith engineered this album at Fiddle Head Studios on Maybe Island BC and produced the album at his studio in Toronto ON.

In July 2015 Mildly Wild recorded their first original album ``One Day``. Marc Atkinson engineered and produced the album at his studio `The Barn` on Hornby Island BC. Watch for Mildly Wild to begin touring in 2017.

Since 2014 Nick has been fortunate enough to join Juno-nominated, Western Canadian award-winning Marc Atkinson, in his instrumental trio.
In October 2014 Nick was asked to join Atkinson’s critically acclaimed group, The Bills, for a stint and has toured with them periodically.

Nick has toured regularly with The Bills, West My Friend and The Marc Atkinson Trio Since 2014, and performed across Canada and the Western United States, as well as in seven countries in Northern and Central Europe.
