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 at Raleigh Music Academy. Nikol also attended Berklee College of Music for Stage Performance in 2006. She is vocally trained at JB Vocal Studios in Raleigh, NC.
Nikol signed with Tate Music Group in 2012 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, Fall Out Boy and Avril Lavigne. In September, she will be back in the studio to record a 5 song EP, so keep those pretty eyes open and looking for updates about that! She has opened up for a several fashion shows and is currently performing at live music venues all over North Carolina.
Nikol's music can be found on Spotify and on her Pandora station - check her out and give your favorite songs a thumbs up!
