After quietly building up a very strong back catalog of solo records since 2002, Los Angeles singer and songwriter Nik Freitas spent the last couple of years as part of Conor Oberst’s Mystic Valley Band and backing James Mercer and Danger Mouse in the Broken Bells live band. As 2011 presses on, he’s turning the spotlight back on himself.
