“Nicole New is a powerhouse singer. She gets into the kernal of a song, down to the root, and works it. She knows the essence of a tune, then embellishes the edges – just enough to let you know she’s in full command of her vocal instrument. 

She knows how to work a blue note, sings with swag and sass – without excessive runs and aggravating melisma.

I’ve rarely heard a singer cover Michael Jackson with such finess, and here she does – I grabbed my camera in the middle of I Want You Back.

I have the feeling we should see her now, at Berts, while we can, before she really blows up – she’s that kinda good.”
