Wendy Nichol (vocals/guitar/piano) is a Texas born pop-folk artist with a sweet and soothing soprano voice. Nichol spent over more than a decade filling journals with lyrics and honing in on her musical passion and finding fulfillment in encouraging others to overcome adversity. Coming from personal struggles herself, Nichol hopes that in telling her story others will go after their passions, and be set free to tell theirs as well.
Nichol was nominated for the “Rising Star” by the Tulsa Spot Awards along with landing a spot in the Quinton Tarantino-esque indie film “Jesus Fish” with her freshman album. Now Nichol is treading through the waters of motherhood and breaking out another great track listing. The adventure that motherhood brings should bring a lot of creative material to the table.
Unpainted is a ten-track album that was put together with the help of many amazing artists. Ja'Marc Davis (producer/engineer) gave his expertise at his home studio in Dallas, Texas. Unpainted was also made with the help of Tim Lucas (mixing/mastering) out of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Getting help from all angles, Nichol recorded at Noise And Sound Studio with Jonny Wright (engineer) and at 3CG Studio. Jesse Sprinkle (engineer/drums) also throwing in his abilities with Bluebrick Recordings.
“Green” takes it back to the early 2000’s. It is a beautiful mix of Alanis Morissette vocals and Colleen Fitzpatrick type of emotion. She brings the song to life with Rick Morton (mandolin) backing up her vocal melody.
Grabbing attention and starting off with its acoustic guitar is “Love You Breathe.” Nichol brings sorrowful lyrics to this track. Backing her up is John David Shelton (guitar). It makes a daunting melody fit for anyone going through any type of heartache.
Nichol closed Unpainted with “So Close.” It is a catchy tune with feelings of tenderness. Feeling as if I could reach out and touch the emotion Nichol puts into the song. Whether about a lover, child or friend, this track’s ability to bring up memories makes it a personal favorite.
Nichol is adventurous in her musical abilities and showing strength in the ability of going far with her sweet soprano voice. Unpainted gave a painted look into the raw emotions that were put into the work of this album. Keep an eye and ear out for her next creative journey.
