There are several artists called Nixon. 1. A Swedish one-man indiepop band. 2. A Minneapolis-based band that broke up in late 2007. 3. A Louisville, Kentucky-based band. 4. A Norwegian pop band. 5. A French hip-hop/jazz artist. 1. Nixon, from Halmstad, Sweden, is a project of Roger Gunnarsson (Free Loan Investments, The Garlands, Cloetta Paris...), and perhaps the one he is best known for. Gunnarsson began recording songs as Nixon with his cousin when he was a child in the mid 1980s.
