Nicolette Good is a Texas singer-songwriter and 2012 Kerrville New Folk winner. In a voice thats at once refined and raw, Nicolette sings with penetrating insight about hope, wrenching love, and the mysteries of everyday life. Her effortless storytelling shines on her latest release Little Boat on a Wave (2015) in toe-tappers like Union Jack, Tehuacana, and the title track, which was inspired by actual events. Several cuts from Little Boat were composed during an artist fellowship at The Lighthouse Works in Fishers Island, New York. Critics have called her a songwriter to follow and a poet of the first order.
Based in Austin, Texas, Nicolette released her first full-length, Monarch (2012), recorded at Ramble Creek Recording Studio. It includes songs like "Hurricane Caroline" and Pretty Clementine, which tell intimate stories of enigmatic, tragic characters, as she sings with penetrating insight about hope, wrenching love, and the mysteries of everyday life.
A Houston native, Nicolette is also a staff musician for Home Street Music, an Austin non-profit using music to empower people who have experienced homelessness.
