Nikole stirs the the raw emotion of the blues, the call to action of folk, the storytelling of country music with the longing for salvation of gospel. Her engaging storytelling style, compelling personal narratives, and powerful voice moves audiences deftly between quiet reflection to uproarious laughter. Nikole's sound has been compared to Lucinda Williams, Brandi Carlile, John Prine, and Grace Potter.
Nikole writes about power—how we find it, how we lose it, how we give it away, and what we must do to get it back. She grew up at the kitchen tables of working women who taught her to read cards, listen for deeper meaning, make her own money, and never back down. Her stories often chronicle the lives of these women- counterfeiters, fortune tellers, bar owners, gamblers, arsonists, divorce’s, and mistresses.
Nikole has performed across the US and her work appears across genres in Los Angeles Review of Books, the Mercury, and Viceland.
Her debut album “You Want to Know About Me” was released June 15, 2017.
