Alycia Nichole is a soulstress, based out of beautiful Santa Barbara, CA. Alycia began singing and dancing at the age of four. At the age of thirteen, Alycia started singing in her churches choir, becoming a soloist. At seventeen, Alycia studied under the critically acclaimed vocal coach, Linda Purdy of Carmel, CA. At 21, she decided to pursue music in Southern California. In the beginning she wrote and recorded hooks. After a year and a half she moved back home, where she wrote and recorded her first seven songs out of her bedroom, with cool edit, and a headset mic. It was back at home, that Alycia met and worked with her first producer, (former bassist for Buddy Guy) Stu Heydon. Stu produced the steamy track, “Seduction,” and mentored her in stage performance and studio etiquette. In 2007, Alycia moved to Santa Barbara and started working with local producer, Zach Madden.
2004, Santa Barbara, CA
Life, art, and love.
Mid to late 2009, Alycia will be releasing several singles and a collaborative project with local producer, Rogan Allen and Northern Cali producer, Hank Marshall.
