Nico Lembo was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida and began playing drums at age 11 at the insistence of his father. He attended college at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville in 2006, where he received instruction from world-renowned drummer Danny Gottlieb. Under Danny’s tutelage, Nico developed a refined sense of groove, musicianship, and technique. In 2008, Nico had the great honor of performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City with the UNF Wind Ensemble, and upon graduating in 2010, lent his talents to many Jacksonville area bands performing live shows and recordings. He has recorded with Jacksonville artists Saltwater Grass, Toots Lorraine and the Traffic, and Brady Clampitt, along with the UNF Jazz Ensemble 2 and UNF combo 1. As a member of Saltwater Grass, he played across the southeast, including multiple festivals at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. 2013 brought a location change to Atlanta, Georgia where he immediately began working with members of Grammy award winning band Arrested Development, and with the award winning corporate band the Emerald Empire Band. He currently lives and works in the Atlanta area.
