Singer / Songwriter / Producer Nikkole releases her third studio album, Creolepatra, and the lead-off single "E-X-OTIC" debuted with a music video that has been certified as gold on Blastro.com. The upbeat single was produced by Nikkole and Lloyd Tolbert (Anthony Hamilton, Lionel Richie, The Emotions, Brandy, Toni Braxton, TLC, Norman Brown). The new release on SE Entertainment Records contains 17 tracks, 14 full-length songs and 3 interludes all penned by the 5-octave vocalist. Coming aboard and lending their legendary Grammy award winning voices are The Emotions on the Interlude - “Are You Swept?”. This brilliant trio worked with Nikkole on her last cd “A Girl Like Me”. In addition, celebrated guitarist David T. Walker makes an appearance on the Memphis blues inspired track “Where I Was Meant To Be”. Creolepatra is filled with an array of passion from the power ballads of “I Really Need You” and “Even On A Day Like This”, to dance floor urban / hip-hop grooves like “Are You Satisfied?”, “Wach-U-No”, “Now Or Later” and “Feel Me”. You’ll find yourself reflecting during the lyrical twists of the interludes, and contemplating life’s everyday lessons while vibing on cuts like...”Stressin’ “and “I Can’t Leave”. The journey isn’t complete until you’re taken back in the day with the 60’s slow jam throwback of “Love Was Made In Heaven”, where you will be reminded of the smooth Motown sounds of Smokey Robinson along with a hint of the R&B Diva Teena Marie.
Critics and Industry Professionals are raving about Nikkole: “Skeptics may take a look at the CD cover and dismiss Nikkole as just another pretty face, without listening to her music. That would be a mistake! For both women and men it certainly does not hurt to have the looks to go with the talent, in the entertainment industry, this lady has cracked the commercial radio market, and is in heavy demand for gigs because she is a very gifted Singer /Songwriter / Producer.” Joe Montague, Riveting Riffs Magazine “Nikkole is superb, what an amazing talent.
