Eric Nikolaides

Guitarist from Austin, Texas

Together with Los Angeles-based singer and actress Olivia Applegate, Eric competed on Season 7 of NBC's America's Got Talent as a member of Eric & Olivia. The duo advanced to the quarterfinals of the competition, in which they performed live for a nationwide audience of more than 11 million.

Eric & Olivia met at the dorms during their freshman year at the University of Texas at Austin. They excelled in crafting a bluesy, soulful, acoustic take on both original material and covers ranging from Top 40 to jazz standards.
