Nick Rich of NEFU

Nick Rich of NEFU Drummer Blog

Hello, world! Some of you may know me, but some of you may not. My name is Nick Rich, and my grandfather was Buddy Rich. I’m currently drumming and writing for a new band called NEFU, which stands for Now Everything’s Finally Understood.

The past few years of my life have molded me into the man that I am today. I battled with addiction for ten years and have been sober since October 2011. The band name refers to the purpose of why I believe I’m here on earth and what my goals in life are.

There is so much music out there that doesn’t lift people up or provide them with a message of hope. Our music is a positive light in a dark world. I’m grateful to be able to have a second chance at life and give glory to God in all that I do. Advertisement

We’ve already begun demoing material for the record, and we are beginning to record it the first of the New Year in Chicago with Jim Peterik. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my amazing family and all the true friends that stuck by my side, even when I was at my lowest. Drummers and musicians alike, if you are battling with addiction or any other issue, please know that there is a way out, and you are not alone.  There is always hope!

Look for our CD in 2013, and thank you for reading.
