Today’s music world is overflowing with up-and-comers vying for instant reality show stardom, but Nashville-based soulstress Nicole Boggs isn’t one of them. With her sultry mélange of soul, jazz, R&B, blues and funk, Nicole is as true to her own unique style as she is dedicated to laying the groundwork for a long, successful musical career. In addition to being a powerful vocalist and natural-born performer, Nicole is also a gifted songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who possesses a depth and maturity well beyond her years. With technical precision and heart wrenching honesty, her sound has the ability to cross the boundaries of genre and connect with audiences across the the board. According to writer/producer/session musician Tyler Summers, "Nicole is an artist in every sense of the word. Not only can she deliver a song with skill and vocal stylings well beyond her years, but she immediately creates a connection with the audience that performers long for in today's music industry with one note. Her ability to put unique twists on other's material is a direct result of her abilities as a songwriter. I've had the joy of working with Nicole in many musical settings, and in every one she never fails to inspire the moment to find a special and memorable place."
Nicole studied at the acclaimed Berklee College of Music, and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists including Josh Groban, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Siedah Garrett, Joyce Kennedy, Cindy Blackman and Beth Hart, who she credits as being one of her greatest influences. Nicole recalls, “I was so excited for Beth Hart to be playing in Nashville. I bought my ticket well in advance, and then the day of the show, I was getting ready to head to the venue when I got a phone call asking if I would be interested in opening for Beth that night. At first, I thought it was a joke! Of course I said YES, then I was told I my set was in a hour! I didn’t even have time to be nervous, and luckily, I made it and the show was amazing!”
In 2008, she had recordings of two songs from a collection of early demos released on a compilation featuring Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Ayo on the AUR label; and in 2009, she independently released a three-song self-titled EP featuring original song "If You Could Love Me". More recently, Nicole has been diligently writing with a network of phenomenal songwriters and musicians in order to create a collection of songs that truly showcase her abilities and exactly who she is as an artist on her debut studio album, OVERCOME - available now!
