The Muse Presents Gillian Nicola

  • The Tipsy Muse Cafè 86 Regent Street Fredericton Canada (map)

Exclaim! on Gillian Nicola "Warm, folksy Canadiana but her powerhouse vocals make for a listening experience that's entirely refreshing."

Hamilton’s Gillian Nicola took an unusual route to becoming a folk/Americana singer-songwriter: trained in classical voice, Nicola spent her teens gigging in a classic rock cover band, singing Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin before launching herself into alt-country when she began writing songs. Nicola’s music centres around her chameleonic vocals - at one moment with a hint of tobacco in her voice, the next outright rocking - strummed and finger picked guitar, and versatile, melodic songwriting. Nicola’s songs are often built around open and alternate guitar tunings that allow her to throw her music theory upbringing out the window.

“[Night Comes to Call] is an earworm that will stick with you all day.” — Adam Carter, CBC “Gillian Nicola makes life a bit better to live in. ” — comeherefloyd “Impressive vocals on a well played offering.” — AmericanaUK “endearing vocals...welcoming harmonies...engaging songwriting” — Aipate
