In the Shallows

Now available on iTunes and Spotify




Nicole is a self-taught pianist from Portland Oregon, now based in Wellington New Zealand. Her eclectic debut album, In the Shallows, is a collection of introspective songs with echoes of Tori Amos, PJ Harvey and Massive Attack.


Nicole’s piano driven compositions and haunting vocals are showcased alongside beautiful and intriguing arrangements of strings, organ, drums, synth, distortion and more. The result is a raw and truthful album that challenges you to explore your own inner darkness.


This self-produced album was made with the support of Creative New Zealand, features the work of well known New Zealand musicians and was featured as the Album Preview of the Week on RadioActive.FM.
