To the Bone
'To the bone' is Nicole Dueck striking debut record. It is an album of stark simplicity stripped down to it's bare essentials-- to the bone. From a childhood singing in children's choirs and studying classical piano, her musical sensibilities are well honed. Nicole's magnetic voice moves with honesty and candor and her smokey tone is sultry and rich. Her Guitar playing uses space, rhythm, and buttery notation to create dynamic counterpoint. Leaving home at the tender age of 15 has distilled in her a unique sense of the world and her songs speak as vivid observations of her encounters. From the country-swing of 'My Blue' to the moodier-than-Nick Cave 'Gettin' Out', To the Bone has a remarkable range in songwriting style and showcases Nicole Dueck's darkly humorous take on life.
