For the audience who prefer only the high-quality music, we offer You to visit Shelley Nicole’s blaKbüshe concert in The Apollo Music Café. The grat perfomance will be on Friday, February 2 at 10 PM. The catchphrase of the Nicole’s show is called, “I AM AMERICAN: THE RED, WHITES & BLUES”.
What will we know about the show? Shelley Nicole — the mainspring behind Shelley Nicole’s blaKbüshe—is simultaneously a product, a witness and architect of Black-on-Black love, a calling that has informed all of her work as a singer, writer, composer, actor, poet, musician and a healer. It is the tap root of her latest work, “I Am American”, a collection of songs written by her and produced by award-winning guitarist, composer and producer Vernon Reid of the band Living Colour.
“I Am American”, the third blaKbüshe release, is Shelley’s sonically and topically valiant mission statement of self-empowerment, self-determination, self-love and self-care.
Shelley Nicole is an Independent Artist and leader of the band Shelley Nicole’s blaKbüshe. She calls her sound SolaRoc, which is a blend of rock, funk and soul. But Shelley has also been known to pull in a bit of blues and whatever else feels good. In 2003 artist released the first album “She Who Bleeds…“ on the Red Butterfly Music label with a lot of prayer and help from her friends and family. In 2008 Nicole recorded a live album at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NY during the U People, Brooklyn Pride celebration. A year later the band released that recording called “The Quick & Dirty EP“; again on her own with friends adding remixes, vocals and lending studio time.
