Nicole: “I’ve been singing since before I could talk.” Photo by Corey Kingsley

A lot of people make music as a hobby, picking up an instrument in high school, college, or early adulthood, jamming in the living room or garage with their buddies as time permits. Then there are those who were born into it. They’re the kids who grow from parroting pop songs heard from the backseat of their moms’ cars to hunkering over acoustic guitars in their bedrooms as teenagers, eventually turning the act of making music into a lifelong pursuit.

Simone Nicole is of the latter variety. Sitting down at a Starbucks before a Sunday night gig at Magnolia Motor Lounge, she described a musical journey that started when she was a toddler.

“I’ve been singing since before I could talk,” she said.
