Lorin Nicholson was declared legally blind at the age of four, however he was determined not to let his disability exclude him from living a full and meaningful life.
Born in 1969 in Wollongong, NSW, to parents John and Julie Nicholson, Lorin is the eldest of six children. The family moved to Tamworth, NSW, where Lorin began and completed his schooling in the mainstream system. He gained a college diploma with high distinctions and in his youth was an accomplished cyclist, swimmer and springboard diver.
One of Australia’s highest selling independent artists, and a much sought after motivational speaker, Lorin has presented more than 2500 inspiring concerts and keynote addresses across Australia, New Zealand and America in the past six years. In January 2005 he was named one of Australia’s finest musicians at the CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia and is a regular performer on the prestigious Vision Australia Carols by Candlelight.
