Although Atlanta’s contemporary soul music scene — populated by artists like India.Arie, Anthony David, Algebra, Khari Cabral Simmons, and dozens more — has been chugging along for almost two decades now, it’s showing no signs of slowing down; brand-new musicians, singers, and songwriters seem to pop up and hit local stages on a regular basis.

Since then, she’s been performing her self-described style of “GLAMsoul” at spots across the city/nation and working on new music — some which (a collection of remixes for “Kissing You”) was released just this week on Traxsource.com. And, according to Nicole, a full-length album (featuring production by Ian Friday, the ATL’s own Salah Ananse, and more) is in the works.

“I am working on a full album. As an artist, you always think you have more songs for your album than you actually do. But realistically, I think that I’m about halfway there,” she said. “I’m hoping that by the beginning of next year, I’ll be able to have an album out.

Before her album drops, however, Nicole is shooting to have a teaser — with four or so tunes — available on Labor Day weekend, just in time for Atlanta’s annual House in the Park celebration.

“It’ll be something to get [listeners’] ears ready for what’s to come ... ”
