About Nick Reinhart
Ever since Reinhart tried his first guitar pedal, he was intrigued by what effects could for musical composition. As such, guitar effects have become an integral part of Reinhart’s playing and his mastery over the sounds you can coax from different constellations of effects is second to none.
With his expertise of effects in mind, Reinhart’s skills on the guitar go way beyond stompbox alchemy. Complex chords, weird rhythms, eccentric two-handed tapping patterns in blinding speed all while holding up the vocals as well – watching him perform is truly mind- bending.
As a songwriter for his band Tera Melos, Reinhart excels at melding together the advanced and intricate with the seemingly simple, playing the contrasts against each other like counterpoint harmony.
Since their inception in 2004, Tera Melos has toured with a vengeance. Four studio albums down the road, they are steadily making a name for themselves by crossing elements of several genres like math rock, experimental music and punk jazz.
One of Reinhart biggest heroes is Wilco’s Nels Cline and Reinhart has even been dubbed “Nels Cline’s younger punk brother”, so it only seems fitting that they both cofounded the super-group, Big Walnuts Yonder, which recently released their self-titled debut in 2017.
Reinhart also has other projects going on, most notably a band called Bygones with Zach Hill of Hella and Death Grip.
Lately, Reinhart has also become a collaborator on Juan Alderete’s YouTube channel, PedalsAndEffects where he contributes with his expertise and insights on guitar effects.
