An essential part of your complete pop breakfast!
Nichole started playing guitar at age 10 as a way to get out of cleaning her room one afternoon. She knew that her father would never force the issue of the cleaning if he walked by her door and heard her strumming chords from the Jim Croce songbook she had borrowed from him. It worked, she's still playing and her room is still a mess.
Nichole's musical performing career began in 1993 when she started playing solo gigs around Boston. This led to a two year stint in Greg Jacob's band, Weeping in Fits and Starts where one reviewer wrote she added a "Campbell Soup Kids" quality.
In 1995, Nichole left WiFaS to form Penguin with ex-Sumac guitar player, Dave Egan. Members of Penguin were never sure whether people came to their gigs for their bright, poppy songs or to hear their cover of "Love is Like Oxygen". Building on the pop sound of Penguin, Orange Nichole was born.
