Valley grad comes home for CD release party

Singer-songwriter Georgina Nicoll is coming home to the Comox Valley

Singer-songwriter Georgina Nicoll is coming home to the Comox Valley for a CD release concert on Saturday, Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m. at the Little Red Church at 2182 Comox Ave.

Nicoll’s style is a blend of folk and pop, featuring vocals and piano with guest musicians on cello, drums and backup vocals.

Her poetic lyrics flow through memorable melodies and carefully crafted arrangements, and her natural, engaging stage presence draws the audience in to the stories her songs relate.

Special guest for this performance is local singer, songwriter and fiddler extraordinaire Ali Romanow, who will open the evening with a showcase of her own original compositions.

Nicoll is certainly no stranger to the stage. While studying at Mark Isfeld Secondary 10 years ago, Nicoll frequently appeared on stages around the Valley and Campbell River with Cantiamo Chamber Ensemble, Rainbow Youth Theatre and the young Celtic group The Island Girls.

She has since worked and traveled abroad, earned two university degrees, and is now based in Victoria where she wrote and recorded the collection of original songs that make up her new album, A Little Courage.

Tickets for Saturday’s concert are $15, available at Bop City Records (211 Simms St. in Courtenay), at the door (cash only) or online at www.GeorginaNicoll.ca.

Also visit this website to hear samples of Nicoll’s music and to order the album.

Her music is also available on cdbaby.com, iTunes, Amazon and GooglePlay. Locally, CDs are for sale at Bop City Records and D.K.T. Farm Market in Merville.
