Galaxe - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Nick Werth (a.k.a. GALAXE) was born and raised in northwest Indiana, 30 miles south of Chicago.
Although his parents were not musicians by trade, they both shared a passion for music and began immersing Nick in sound at a very early age. Before Nick could walk, his father would sing and strum lullabies in the form of folk music. Once Nick was old enough, his mother promptly got him involved in the church choir.

His parents had a diverse appreciation for music, and would always have a record playing in the house. From Motown R&B to classic rock, Nick learned to appreciate it all. At age 5, Nick wore out his first record on his fisher price record player… the Chicago Bears Super Bowl Shuffle.
