"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.

No albums as yet, haven't recorded anything but demos, would love too though. I will be in Boston for 5 weeks for the Summer Performance Program at Berklee, I wish you were nearer so we could play somewhere.
The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
Grady Tate began his jazz career as a much-celebrated drummer, backing such icons as Wes Montgomery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. Tate has since traded in his skins for a microphone at center stage, where he delivers smooth and soulful baritone vocals. With pianist John di Martino, Tate sings "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Where Do You Start."
He was a soulful reedman, an amazing talent scout for decades and a bandleader of one of the country's most popular acts. Born in 1913, Herman led "Thundering Herds" that were both big draws and well-respected by the likes of Igor Stravinsky. Here are five recordings which still sound fresh today.
Hear passionate improvisation across borders on Colombian harp, Argentinian bandoneón, Venezuelan cuatro and vibes from the U.S. In a set with Castañeda, his trio and special guests perform at the Americas Society in New York.
