Nicollette Sullivan blends the classic, timeless sound of artists like Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday with new production and a modern vibe to create a style uniquely her own.


Nicollette has been surrounded by music her entire life. Both of her parents are singers; her dad was the lead singer in a hard rock band and her mom sang back up for various bands. Exposed to hard rock and metal from dad and Soul, R&B, Classical, and Funk from mom, Nicollette had a diverse musical experience growing up.
Meanwhile, with her mom and grandmother, she was steeped in classic, black and white films, and period pieces. It was watching these films that led to Nicollette’s discovery of some of the artists that influenced her musical development; Such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Nina Simone. Through musicals and singing in choir while in school, Nicollette began developing her voice by pursuing singing professionally after high school. It was then that the writing for her debut album began. Over the next few years Nicollette’s "voice" and brand developed. Today she is working on her sophomore album and continuing to grow, evolve and develop as an artist.


Nicollette’s debut studio album entitled “Nicollette” is available on “For Artists Records”, and was recorded in at C4 Music Lab in Highland Park, California. The recordings include guest appearances from world renowned studio musicians Lee Thornburg (Chicago, Arron Neville, Ray Charles , Bonnie Raitt), Jimbo Ross (Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Mariah Carey), Ed Roth ( Annie Lennox, The Brothers Johnson, Sofie B. Hawkins), Tony Mandracchia ( Ray Charles, Ruben Studdard, Judith Hill, David Foster, Edgar Winter), and Doug Webb ( Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, Stanley Clarke).
