ABOUT NICOLE

Nicole Jordan is a Trinidad-born, Canada-raised vocalist, writer, academic, and musician based in The Netherlands. As a musician and lyricist she has released her first acclaimed album, Jab Jab with The Dr. Jordan Institute (2019) which blends Afro-Caribbean, classical, and electronic music. Her work calls upon her Caribbean heritage and spirituality often placed at odds with life in Europe. Her first book of poetry, '89' was launched in 2018, and in 2017 she performed her one-woman show, Goddess of the Wind. An acrobatic vocalist, Nicole explores the boundaries of her instrument with techniques ranging from spoken word to coloratura soprano. She has been called a ‘singer-scholar’ and holds a PhD in Music Performance Studies from the University of Sheffield, UK. She works as an academic at the Codarts Conservatory of Music in Rotterdam, and Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague.
