Nikol has been on the stage since…forever. She is originally from Boston, MA, currently living in Raleigh, NC. When she was old enough to walk, she was known to follow her older sister up onto the stage while she performed a solo in church "When I felt like it, I would sing a note; when I didn’t, I’d just stand there with my thumb in my mouth – I just wanted to be ON the stage."
At 18 years old, Nikol bought her first guitar - a very fitting black thin-body Martin acoustic/electric - and started taking private lessons with Robert Horne at Raleigh Music Academy. Nikol also attended Berklee College of Music for Stage Performance in 2006. She is vocally trained with Johanna Boberg at JB Vocal Studios in Raleigh, NC.
In 2012, Nikol signed with Tate Music Group and released her first full-length album, "Bittersweet" in the Summer of 2013 – it’s available on iTunes, Amazon, etc… The record is EDGY pop/rock, similar to the sounds of Paramore and Avril Lavigne. She is currently back in the studio to record a 5 song EP with Drew Fulk (Upon A Burning Body, Motionless in White, For All Those Sleeping, etc.) and Kile Odell (Motionless in White, Cursed Sails, etc.), so keep those pretty eyes open and looking for updates about that!
Nikol's music can be found on Spotify and on her Pandora station - check it out and give your favorite songs a thumbs up!
