Nica & Joe

Nica & Joe are a vocal duo consisting of Veronika Belyavskaya from Poland and Joseph Guyton from the United States. Belyavskaya was born in Legnica, Poland, lived in Baku, Azerbaijan, and Moscow, Russia, and studied at the Maastricht Academy of Music, while Guyton was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, went to the Juilliard School of Music in New York, and was selected for the Plácido Domingo Young Artist Program. They met a few months before taking part in the second season of the German casting show The X Factor in 2011, where they were mentored by jury member Sarah Connor and eventually made third place, losing against David Pfeffer and Raffaela Wais. Nica & Joe's self-titled debut album was released the same year, featuring a glamorous mixture of pop balladry and classical music with cover versions of songs such as Queen's "Who Wants to Live Forever," Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "The Power of Love," and Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters." The record reached number 25 on the German album charts. ~ Christian Genzel
