Bio / Electronic Press Kit

"If you are anything like me, you spend a lot of time imagining what would have happened if you had said what you truly wanted to say. I write songs to narrate these alternate realities that exist entirely inside my head." -Nel Abdiel

Nel Abdiel is a self-produced bilingual (Spanish/English) singer-songwriter from Puerto Rico, based in Washington DC. Nel is a professional overthinker who writes lyrics as a way to explore, with humor and wit, the endless alternate endings or "what could have been" scenarios of his past failed relationships. Though he music is produced with a full band you'll often find Nel playing stripped down versions of his songs with his acoustic guitar all over the DMV area.

If you are a member of the press send us a message via instagram or email at nel.abdiel (at) gmail.com and we'll get you access to our music prior to the official release for any write ups or features. Same for contact info for booking.
