Jazz-Soul Sensation Nicci Canada
A native of Charleston, West Virginia, Nicci Canada was destined to sing. Born into a family of vocalists, she has been surrounded by music her entire life. Possessing a unique ability to connect with listeners, she uses her voice as a canvas to showcase the truths of the heart and soul. Her warm, sultry vocals are reminiscent of artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone, but her amazing sound is unique to the gifts and talents she has been given.
Nicci released her first solo project in 2011 title “Twenty Twelve”, an eclectic mix of melodies that highlighted her unique vocal ability and introduced her to audiences around the world. However, it would be the grace and soulful serenity of Jazz that called to her heart and would deliver her to a world of jazz enthusiasts. She has since gone on to perform with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and the Tulsa Signature Symphony.
“A rich and intimate voice, spanning jazz, funk, soul, R&B and symphonic classical music, Nicci Canada is poised to quickly become a well known name and birth an exciting new genre of symphonic big band soul-jazz. Having worked with hundreds of singers, I am taken with her inventiveness, her breadth of musical vision and a depth of voice that is both focused and cultivated and expressive. Her singing and compositions are certain to capture the attention of musicians and audiences of all kinds.”- Jeremy Kurn , Arranger and Composer
"After listening to Nicci Canada's sultry, soulful voice, I came to one conclusion; It's about time! Way too many artist sound the same, but Nicci Canada blows that concept out of the water. The pure, magic mixture of jazz, neo soul, r&b and yes gospel, is refreshing to say the least. - Bigday of "The Bigday Morning Show"
Her exceptional voice compelled the crowd to listen closely to her unique styling. I truly believe she has that "something" that will take her far. I'm looking forward to having her back." - Stephan R. Starks, Founder & President, Multifest
