Trained from a young age to be a professional opera singer, Nico left the classical world and found her true voice as a singer/songwriter in her very early twenties. With a versatile, powerful singing voice and guitar and piano chops to boot, Nico is a crowd-pleaser everywhere she goes, both with her genre-crossing original songs and her creative, soulful covers of everyone from Adele to to Otis Redding. She recently recorded and released a fan-funded EP "Waterbird" which is available on iTunes and CDBaby. She has an eclectic array of influences, from Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, and the Beatles, to Regina Spektor, Brandi Carlisle, Ben Folds, The Dixie Chicks, Dave Matthews Band, and the Avett Brothers. She likes to rock hard, she likes to sing pretty songs, and she occasionally likes to put on a cowboy hat. But only once every other blue moon.
