Nicole’s Story

The beginning

From early childhood Nicole knew music was her future. In addition to piano, she has mastered many instruments which include the guitar, drums, trumpet and fiddle.

Finding her voice

Nicole’s music is raw, honest, always real, as she says, “I don’t go for a trendy approach. What I do is blues!”. 

The influences for her music include Memphis Minnie, Blind Willie McTell, as well as Sam Cooke  and many others.

Making it happen

Nicole’s engagements include opening for Jack De Keyzer,  multiple appearances at the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival in addition to performing an original (Down by the River) with Larry Kurtz and the Lawbreakers on the Main stage.

She has performed throughout Caledon and Orangeville as well competing in Rising Stars at the CNE, and finished in the top 10 at the Rising Star competition at the Chin Picnic.

Nicole released her 1st CD of 6 original blues songs in June.    Many thanks to Erick  Bruck and TJ Whitelaw.
