"Nicole has a sophisticated, yet sultry style....fully committed to an honest interpretation of the music."
"Listening to Nicole Madison’s studied blend of Astrud Gilberto sweetness, Peggy Lee sexiness and Blossom Dearie sassiness, one could easily be led to believe that singing jazz is the logical and inevitable objective of her journey as an artist."
Rich Anderson (Planet Jackson H***)
Nicole made her start in musical theatre. She was living and working in New York City, when a show brought her to Jackson H*** in 2000. Falling in love with the mountains, Nicole made Jackson her home in 2001. Musicians Keith Phillips and Pam Drews-Phillips invited her to sing with them and introduced her to the world of jazz. Nicole never looked back. She re-directed her focus and has been studying jazz music ever since. Nicole began singing in different venues around Wyoming, which led to performing at the Grand Teton Music Festival, the Yellowstone Jazz Festival, the Lander Jazz Festival, and the Wyoming Arts Council Concert Series.
Nicole has also performed at the Center for the Arts Concert Series in Jackson H*** as well as Bravo presents.
In 2006 Nicole moved to Salt Lake City to work with saxophonist, producer and arranger, David Halliday on her debut album, "P.S. I Love You" (Lone Peak Sound).
"P.S. I Love You," was released in 2007 and can be heard on airwaves around the country.
In Utah she has performed with The Salt Lake City Jazz Festival Orchestra, The David Halliday Quintet, and The Craig Larson Trio.
Nicole is loving this journey. She currently resides in Park City, Utah and is available....for gigs, that is.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
