ABOUT

Hi, I am Alicia Nicole, a vocalist based in San Diego. I've been involved with music since I was seven years old, when I started learning to play the piano. From then on I was hooked with the way sound works and how it can radiate different frequencies. As my musical journey continued I began writing my own music (notation and lyrics) with the piano and naturally my love for singing rose. I started out more comfortable with physical instruments like the piano, slowly learning the guitar (still learning), harmonica, and percussion. Singing is something I have definitely gained the most improvement and confidence in once I really let go. Since gaining vocal experience I have formed a band with an amazing producer, Roy Gallegos, called A.M.ZOL. Together we merge live instruments like guitar, bass, piano, and vocals with electronic software, ultimately creating the musical hybrid we are. As our musical journey goes on I have also learned and continue to learn the amazing art of production. So fifteen years later from starting to learn the piano, I have become a more well rounded musician with a lot more to bring to the table. Blessings!
