From murky basements to major music venues...
Nicole Price has been heavily involved in the music scene her entire life. Her father sang in a doo-wop group as a young boy alongside his father and her mother was active in a church music and theater group. Her oldest brother David played guitar and sang for a punk rock group called No Prematures and her second oldest brother, Kevin (a.k.a. Esque Roxwell) was a member of a local hip hop group called The Seven Chakraz. From 1996 to 2000, Nickie attended private voice lessons and performed at local legion halls and various street shows. She was primarily trained in classical music but soon found her true passion for Hip Hop at age 14. In 2003, Nickie joined forces with her brother Esque Roxwell and the Seven Chakraz crew, making her official entrance into hip hop culture.
The Seven Chakraz disbanded around 2007, but Nickie was still hungry to make music. She began her solo career and sought the assistance of a local Southfield Michigan entity, Daleth Music Group. She released her debut solo album entitled The Glitter Wars in 2009 under Deleth's guidance and continued her push for self-expression. During her search, Nickie made the decision to leave Deleth to pursue her music career on her own and later went on to release her second album entitled The Triumphant Rise & Tragic Existence of Sick Nick in 2013.
In 2021, Nickie released The Collective Thought E.P., a collaborative project that includes a custom comic book accompaniment designed by Kam Comics.
Since her third album release, Nickie has put her focus into performing, promoting, and further developing her skills as an artist. She has directed some of her focus back into her education and is currently studying Arts and Entertainment Administration and Management at Eastern Michigan University. In 2022, Nickie embarked on her greatest collaborative project to date: becoming a mother.
Nickie still makes time to perform, collaborate, and record new music whenever possible. She has opened for hip hop greats such as Digable Planets, Blackalicious, and the mighty KRS-One, and has organized multiple local events in her community.
