A refreshing sound has hit the music scene.  It’s none other than jazz, soul singer Nicci Canada. Since the release of her debut album Twenty Twelve you literally cannot get enough of the jazzy scatting and soulful singing that comes from the heart of this songstress. Within the first few months of her album release, the project landed on the UK Soul Chart's Top 30 for 10 straight weeks and continues to embrace listeners throughout the world.

“I love to create and express who I am through music.", says Nicci. “I'm a walking melody and it’s a gift that I want to present to the world.” Nicci’s messages of love, passion and worship create the musical canvases on which she paints her voice. Through various genres – Jazz, Soul, R&B and Gospel – she communicates with listeners in a way that can only be described as magical.

Nicci was born into a family of vocalists in Charleston, West Virginia. She has been surrounded by music since birth. In 2001 Nicci decided to make music a career after moving to Charlotte, North Carolina. Realizing the possibilities of pursuing her passion professionally, she worked with Paul Whitley to release a three-song demo in 2005. In 2009, Nicci teamed up with business mogul Mitch Vaugn, and founded Jevenity Music Entertainment, LLC.

Through her warm, sultry vocals, the influence of Billie Holiday, Jill Scott and Nina Simone is clear. But Nicci Canada’s amazing sound is all her own.
