This special event features the West coast Seattle girl LIVE ... debuting music from her upcoming project and familiar favorites
Born and bred in Seattle, Washington, Kimberly Nichole moved to New York City where she launched her career. National and international performances soon followed, allowing her to share the stage with such artists as Slash (Guns N Roses), Living Colour, Alice Smith, Janelle Monae, Nona Hendryx (Labelle), Aloe Blacc, Bilal, Joe Walsh (The Eagles) and Jon Bon Jovi. Her mesmerizing performance style has captured the attention and support of Quincy Jones, songwriting duo Ashford & Simpson and fashion savant Andre Leon Talley. Talley was so taken with Nichole’s talent and fashion-forwardness that he invited her into the offices of VOGUE and featured her in the magazine. Her original music has been featured on MTV, VH1, BET, LOGO, Lifetime and Showtime. After hearing her music, Tony award winning director George C. Wolfe personally selected her to be the featured rock performer in his film "You Are Not You," which stars Oscar-winner Hilary Swank. Now residing in London, Kimberly still performs throughout the US with her band, while hosting 'The Box' London. She also has been featured in the NETFLIX, Ezra Koeing (Vampirie Weekend) created anime series Neo Yokio (starring Jaden Smith, Jude Law, Susan Sarandon and more). Kimberly also most recently completed her Brooadway debut in ROCKTOPIA where the New York Times praised her performance saying “..[she] has a distinctive tone, all burnished copper, and she manages to inject fresh life into the hoary "Dream On.” Now back in London, Kimberly is preparing to release her project The West Coast Seattle Girl.
