Christian artist Nicois is known for her edgy, yet embraceable style of music. Not one to be pigeon-holed musically, the D.C. area-based artist is breaking out of the box, blending gospel, Christian rock and urban sounds. She is unabashed about her faith and shares her love of God through catchy songs with memorable hooks. Nicois has been blessed to share the stage with artists such as Y’anna Crawley, Vickie Winans, Karen Clark-Sheard, Shirley Caesar, Tye Tribbett, Daryl Coley, Maurette Brown Clark, Martha Munizzi and many others. Now, the singer/songwriter is readying the release of her brand new CD called Un-Di-Ni-A-Bel. Influenced by artists such as Nichole Nordeman, Martha Munizzi and Chris Tomlin, Nicois’ (pronounced Neh’-quois)
music serves to encourage, inspire and uplift. The artist will have the opportunity to do just that at the pre-release concert taking place at Agape Embassy Ministries (5775 Barclay Drive, Suite 7, Alexandria, VA) on Saturday, May 12th at 6PM. The artist will be performing cuts from the CD and attendees will be able to purchase the project at the free event. For more information, log on to www.NicoisMusic.com.
As a Worship Leader and Choir Director at Agape Embassy Ministries, Nicois is thrilled about presenting new music from the project. “I am overjoyed with the response to the melodies I believe God has laid on my heart to share with his people,” says the worshiper. “On May 12th we are going to laugh, sing, dance and be inspired as we celebrate just how GLORIOUS (Track One) God is. Get ready to experience a phenomenal blend of Contemporary, Rock, Pop, and Gospel sounds with ONE purpose - to serve as a joyful reminder that God has been madly in love with us since DAY ONE (Track Three)”. The CD will be available for purchase on iTunes on the official release date of Tuesday, May 15, 2012.
Nicois is a gifted singer-songwriter and it’s clear on Un-di-ni-a-bel that she’s no novice. During the 11-track project, it’s apparent that Nicois is in her element. With the makings of a Top Ten hit, the lead single, “Undeniable”
(Track Four), has quickly become Nicois’ signature song. Penned by Kurtis Parks, Jemia Ellis and Joel Buckner, the song speaks of the awesomeness of God. With a slight rock edge, “Undeniable”
showcases the artist in a moving vocal performance of an outstanding song. Those needing a boost of spiritual energy will find it with “Revive Us” (Track Five) and listeners will be enraptured with the mesmerizing track, “Take Everything” (Track Ten). Reminding us of the eternal love of God, the danceable, electronica feel of “Day One” warms the heart and is a true highlight of the CD.
Nicois’ passion lies in creating universal, powerful, and effective music for the Christian believer that stretches across genres, races and even, continents. Born in Arlington, VA, Nicois’ desire to reach the masses through the ministry of melodies was planted at the age of seven when she joined the church choir. It was after the death of her father, however, that Nicois began to immerse herself into writing and singing. Gospel music became a major focus and she began singing for a well-known gospel choir named Images of Unity under the direction of Kenny Taylor. She became the lead singer of a renowned gospel band called Krazy Praise and eventually completed her first solo EP called Everyday Blessings. In October 2011, Nicois released her second EP called Undeniable.
