About Marlin Nichols...

Marlin Nichols of Lakeland, Florida has used his musical gifts for many years in his home church, Lake Gibson Nazarene to praise God and bless the members of his church family. He was born in January of 1954, several weeks premature and his survival in the first days of his life was doubtul. God must have had a reason for Marlin to live, though, and he was thought of by some as a miracle baby.

The oldest of six siblings, Marlin was raised on a country farm in Michigan. All of the children were given the opportunity to take piano lessons and Marlin started lessons at the age of five or six. He continued those lessons all through high school and also studied classical music in college.

For most of his life, Marlin has played the piano in church. He also played at the Gospel Barn in Hillsdale, Michigan for seven years before moving to Florida. He began sharing his talents at the Lake Gibson Nazarene Church in 1998. Marlin also has accompanied several well-known gospel groups.

Marlin recorded his first CD in 2007 at Fair Haven Ministries in Hudsonville, Michigan and recently completed a second album. Both of his recordings are available below for purchase.

Marlin's prayer is that his music will be a blessing and encouragement to all.
