Nick Engel and I (Chris Hatwell) are an instrumental duo, performing Spanish Guitar, Ambient music, Blues and Jazz

Nick Engel is a versatile yet classically trained guitarist who has been gigging on the London music scene for many years. After studying music and forming a band at college, he went on to perform at venues around London and also with the Occupy London underground scene, performing original funk/rock/rap tracks and also working alot as a 'jam band.'

He moved more toward the acoustic guitar scene after being asked to perform with renowned modern acoustic player Stuart Masters. After a few years gigging together at venues including the Camden Barfly and The Borderline, they disbanded to work on solo projects.

Nick went on to do session work with various vocalists ranging from pop to soul, and performed lounge jazz regularly at restaurants, before being asked to sit in as resident guitarist at an East London hip hop night. Here he got into live sampling which he started to use regularly, creating beats and self producing 2 trip hop LPs. He also began solo performances, supporting groups such as Bobby Harrison's SNAFU, blending Latin Jazz standards and traditional Spanish guitar pieces with loops and improvisation. He and Myself met at a local music store and jammed together on a few tracks, and then decided to form Niris.

In early 2012, I had the privilege to meet Milos face to face,
During which my Grandad was a big admire and a huge influence through my music,
I attended Trinity Laban for 9/10 years achieving my Grade 8 in both Classical Guitar and Piano with support through AYM for a number of years and helped me greatly!

I have a fairly growing fanbase on Instagram, 22K, I'll leave the latest Video just below
