In the Spring of 2016, Nitsch released his debut album, “Passage”, followed by his EP “Torn” the next year. Nitsch has received much acclaim for his music including an invitation to perform at the 2017 Rochester Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony alongside musical veterans Paul Schaffer, Gary Lewis, and others.
