Nicole Smit

For a few years now, working in Blueswater, Cow Cow Boogie, Queens of the Blues, and with The Back Up Crew, singer, Nicole Smit’s star has been gradually rising, and now here she is with an EJBF show that puts the spotlight on her alone. Nicole Smit didn’t find blues, blues found her. From Big Mama Thornton’s heartwrenching ballads to Sugar pie Desanto’s joyful R&B, the women in blues that came before live on in her, inspiring new realms of this mother genre of modern music. She’s rooted in deep history and yet able to translate inspiration into upbeat, uplifting and truly inspirational concerts through the force of her personality and her fantastic blues-drenched voice.
