My Favourite Thing is a video feature where the Georgia Straight gets interesting folks from around town to list off, among other things, their favourite performers, live gigs, and singers. And, of course, their favourite thing.
Vancouver's own Nicholas Krgovich is a man of many bands. He first hit the scene as the singer-songwriter for indie-pop outfit, P:ano, before founding Gigi with record producer Colin Stewart. In 2008, P:ano became No Kids with the departure of singer-keyboardist Larissa Lovya. It was five years prior to that that Krgovich began working on a solo project, and now, the artist known for his eclectic taste and love for the city of Los Angeles has just released his third solo album, The Hills. The Straight caught up with Krogivch at his East Van garden suite where we drank tea, listened to Billie Holiday, and talked about a few of his faves.
The Hills is an accurate reflection of Krgovich's diverse tastes: cinematic orchestras, moody piano, hip-hop beats, film noir jazz, and smooth R&B all work their way into the 12-track LP. Krgovich will be touring Europe for the month of March, but stay tuned for word on an upcoming show in Vancouver.
Watch the video below to get an inside look at some of Krgovich's influences, and check out his music here.
