Nick 13 is the guitarist, vocalist, and main songwriter of psychobilly band Tiger Army as well as a solo artist. Nick 13 grew up listening to his father's 50's rock-and-roll records. As a teenager, he was introduced to punk rock through skateboarding and the local punk / hardcore scene. Nick attended Leigh High School and Ukiah High School with future AFI and Tiger Army stand-up bass player Geoff Kresge, who left the band in 2004 and then returned in 2008.

After High School, Nick 13 attended UC Berkeley. In 1991, he formed his first band, Influence 13, with Kresge and Jade Puget, now of AFI. He formed Tiger Army in 1995. The band has released four studio albums, had a #1 single on L.A.'s KROQ FM and continues to tour internationally. Nick has announced plans to record a solo album filled with acoustic and country inspired tracks similar to Tiger Army songs like "Outlaw Heart," "In The Orchard" and "Where The Moss Slowly Grows." He has also mentioned, via his official Twitter account, that he has become a practitioner of transcendental meditation.

Nick has appeared in a few films, including Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore (1997), Live Freaky! Die Freaky! (2006) as the voice of the TV Reporter #1, and in David Lynch's Inland Empire (2006) as an archaeologist.
