Optimism. A word infused with hope, positivity, and good will. These qualities are embodied by up-and-coming vocal artist Alycia Nichole. This young woman has exotic beauty, a soulful voice, and an ocean of creative talent. What is more impressive is her deep-seated devotion to making the world a better place.“I live to help others. I have been given a lot of love in my life, and everything I do is pretty much in the business of serving people.” Reflecting this philosophy, her songs focus on a variety of upbeat themes. “The world needs uplifting, positive messages in these troubled times. I hope I can provide a little light in the darkness.” This desire to help others is part of what draws her to music, which she believes has “the power to heal and affect people’s emotions in a positive way.”
Her first single, “Suddenly”, raced to #1 on a Clear Channel R & B station. The second single, "Do You Believe," was a DJ favorite at the 2010 Olympic Games and featured on multiple highlight reels. Later, “Butterfly” was picked up by radio stations in Santa Barbara and London. Even Wyclef Jean recognized her talent and offered her a chance to record in his New York studio.
Alycia Nichole, the self-titled debut record, released November 2011, accentuates Alycia’s refined yet edgy vocal stylings, which hold a rare ability to reflect emotional nuances, be it pain or joy.
