Though she describes herself as super sensitive to the world around her, at 6'3" Nicole Craig stands tall and strong and can belt out a song with emotion and passion, taking her audiences on an inward journey journey. Her songs have content beyond the typical song topics, offering messages of self empowerment, global awareness and universal connectivity.
Nicole studied classically performing in symphony orchestras for over 7 years. Nicole can play 5 instruments and sing in 5 languages. Though mainly a Folk musician in the early years, elements of her Classical background and love for World and New Age music are now more predominant in her music.
Nicole's self-produced debut album "Why Dont You Care" released in 2012 and her EP "Strong Enough For Love" released September 2014 have been added to playlists in over 100 radio stations across North America and Europe. Songs from these albums received a CMJ add in its first week of radio promotions and were in the top 20 charts at KAOS radio and The Scope. Her third album "Lift" produced a #1 hit for indie artist for 2017 at Q108 Kingston. In 2018 she released the album “Calm Collection”, a collection of relaxing songs from previous albums and the single “Ave Maria.


The Wellington Times had this to say about a recent performance at the 2019 County Pop Music festival “...While these artists were all very good, (Nicole) Craig’s performance was a cut above. The solo performer used looping and a synthesizer built into her guitar to achieve the sound of a full band to go along with the remarkably pure tones of her voice."

Nicole has performed at multiple events including the Orillia Opera House, Bobcaygeon Beer Festival, Niagara Lavendar Festival, Canada Blooms, Lindsay Academy Theatre, Old Church Theatre, Algonquin Theatre, Hughs Room and many other great venues. Nicole has performed with such artists as Rick Dutkiewicz Haynes (bassist for Gordon Lightfoot since 1969) and Folk legend Valdy. Band members have included David Henman (co-founder of April Wine), Tom Nagy (bass), and Donald Quan (former keyboardist for Lighthouse and percussionist for Loreena Mckennitt). She is touring across Ontario and Quebec on the Dragon and Phoenix 2019 tour and soon to be releasing the new single Dragon and Phoenix.


 ​​Get taken on an atmospheric musical ride beyond borders. Nicole Craig delivers an emotion filled performance, angelic vocals and deep lyrics that will encourage you to explorethe inner journey. Nicole performs a classical synthesizer guitar backed by veteran guitarist, Juno award winner, Canadian Music Hall of Famer and co-founder of April Wine, David Henman and versatile bassist Tom Nagy.
