Nicole's talent reaches back through the ages as much as it sets an example for the music of the future. Today's stress-filled world is overwhelmed by the 'more is better' philosophy, but she has chosen not to walk that path. Instead, her music subtly weaves patterns that ever-so-gently engage all the senses.
Influenced by her father, Paul LaRoche of Brule? Perhaps. There are similarities in the way that her flute soars along age-old paths connecting music and our intellectual, emotional and physical patterns. Truly, Paul and Nicole are masters of a very ancient art. So skillful are their compositions, so breathtaking is their understanding of the human soul that their creations not only engage the senses but may manipulate them as well.
Nicole's style is not her father's however; Brule's unique melodies are supported by a more 'masculine' or 'earthy' foundation of traditional Native American music. Nicole is pure flight.
Highly recommended listening for long commutes in city traffic, quiet nights at home or last-minute changes to a project with a looming deadline...anywhere you would like to create a peaceful space.
