Nick Spurrier is a professional pianist, composer, private piano instructor, accompanist, multi-instrumentalist, arranger, producer, lyricist, and all around musical enthusiast based in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. He is also the co-founder/co-leader of the rock band, Lindby, and plays Randy Greentrees on Lindby’s musical Dungeons and Dragons podcast, bomBARDed.

Since starting the piano at age eight, the past decades have led Nick to take on the tenor and bass trombone, guitar, bass, voice, and drums – as well as developing a love for composition, which led to his major of choice.

Nick began a private piano studio in 2008 at Cornerstone UMC in Garland, Texas after becoming the church’s pianist one-year prior. Since then, he has taught dozens of individuals ranging from ages 4-64 with many different experience levels and has moved his studio out into the Flower Mound area. He occasionally still studies under the instruction of his friend and mentor, Mike Springer: a brilliant pianist, instructor, composer, and all-around musician.

In the Fall of 2010, Nick received his Bachelor’s of Music in Composition (with piano as his principle instrument) from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Since then, Nick has had a number of different musical jobs: teaching, gigging, accompanying, and composing. These days, he mostly focuses on teaching and composing with the occasional gig here and there. And while Lindby and bomBARDed are largely on a hiatus, the group still gets to make music on a consistent basis together over on bomBARDed’s Patreon.

Nick is lucky enough to share his life with his wife, Melissa, and their three cats: Niles, George, and Alex. He also gets to be a professional photographer with Melissa for her wedding photography business and her corporate photography business.
