Five Questions With Nichelle Colvin
Singer Nichelle Colvin’s Evolving-RLM is an excellent follow up for her previous offering, “Soulfully Yours, Nichelle”. Nichelle does not disappoint in her 4th project Evolving-RLM (Real Life Music). This sexy, soulful artist continues on her path to feed her audience real R&B soul with no reservations. Evolving is saturated with stories of love and tasteful lust in the true Nichelle style.
Nichelle teamed up with a very talented producer by the name of William “Slick” Brown from “So Fo Real Productions.” Slick’s new and fresh sound of R&B & Soul has only accented Nichelle’s diverse sound and attitude. The Evolving Album is in the “Sounds Like” category of Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Maysa, Lalah Hathaway and category of its own, according to the official line.
Nichelle also remained with Aaron “The Titan” Bradley who produced most of the tracks on of her “Soulfully Yours, Nichelle” Album. She has also added more talented producers such as a Bonus track for fans produced by Aaron “The Titan” Bradley , “Silent Treatment Remix.”
An earlier single “Touch Me Right” is an interesting collab with rapper WiseGuy Pugg. The joint Charted #15 on the Upcoming100.com site under Emerging Artist. Colvin really shows out on this joint and the production helps create a forever piece of music. 5/5 on the vocals and production for me…WiseGuy Pugg added a cool flavor with his flow.
“Dawned on you” off the album charted as high as #34 on DRT (Digital Radio Tracker) and is a wake up call for those who don’t see the great things right in their face.
The rest of the album was mixed by Grammy Award Winners, Craig Bauer, at Hinge Studios in Chicago. Matt Hennesy, at VSOP studios in Chicago, (Touch Me Right) and Chris Stienmetz, at Stonecutter Studios in Chicago also remixes off the album done by CRC Studios in Chicago with Mason Bonner.
Nichelle’s vocal capacity to belt out a heavy dose of authority for those fat and driving power chords and then take it down a few notches to offer some class and sensitivity to her approach and style gives her a broad paintbrush musically. Here is an album that talks to the listener who have not forgotten Love. This is the genius of Gary’s own Nichelle Colvin.
