Born and raised in rural Ohio, Nick Lantz developed a midwestern work-ethic at a young age. He bounced between construction jobs, giving campus tours, writing a book, and working at the local biker bar all while attending college. In 2016 he graduated with a degree in journalism from Ohio University. It was during this time, as well as studying overseas in London that he discovered his passion for music, storytelling, and adventure.
After college, he spent some time freelancing and working with local bands in Columbus, Ohio before making the big jump to Music City. He loves to bring his talents to the creative process and collaborate with others in order to create something really cool. Outside of Taillight, he can usually be found checking out a local show or is busy getting lost in the woods.
