By Entertainment Contributor: Sheri John
Alexis Nicole is an up and coming songstress with so much talent and just an all around confidence that some singers should possess. She’s In the midst of Promoting her new EP entitled “Day Break” which she will be launching a tour in a couple of Cities such as New York, LA & Atlanta, just to name a few.
But touring isn’t the only thing this starlet is doing, Alexis exclaimed that she will be dropping individual videos that will make up as short films to pretty much tell the story of what “Day Break” is about. Alexis said ‘that the visuals for each song off of the “Day Break” EP is actually a Continuous Story, which I find so exciting. Artists who actually take the time to give you their story through art is always liberating for me.
I asked Alexis what is the meaning behind “Day Break?” Alexis said that this project is a personal one for her. “The first time that I sat down to create an album, there were no placements or opportunities to create something creatively. So “Day Break” was a project that felt long overdue. It tells a story of struggles in the industry, and with this project I tried to find and eclectic way of showing that.”
Alexis Nicole’s inspirations in the music industry are of course the heavy hitters such as Whitney Houston, Anita Baker and Gladys Knight. She even cited that Kelly Price, Deborah Cox & Lauryn Hill have been great inspirations and influences to her musically. Although, Alexis really feels that Faith Evans and Brandy were the two singers that really set the bar in music. She feels Faith introduced stacked harmonies making a difference in the way music was presented, and she liked the way Brandy sang her words, two different singers but very impactful styles of music in the 1990’s. The artist(s) that Alexis would love to collaborate with if she had the opportunity, would be Cold Play. The VA Native’s said that she would “come running” with excited certainty, given the chance.
Alexis stays busy outside of music too. She has other business endeavors in the works such as creating her own Cigar Line. Her favorite brand of Cognac is Pitaud. She even dabbled in film and has been a part of a television scripted drama series. The television series was created, produced and written by her best friend in which she is looking for it to be released by the end of 2017.
Alexis Nicole has a very humble spirit and just wants the best for her future and is willing to work hard for whatever she puts her mind to. There aren’t many artists that come across humble and just thankful to live in their dream, Alexis Does not share that sentiment. She is definitely a smart, beautiful young woman destined for greatness. From one singer to another I wish you all the best Gurl. Signing off!!
