Nicole Henry – Embraceable

A slight departure from her prior recordings, Embraceable continues to establish Nicole as a peerless interpreter of jazz and pop standards, transcending genre boundaries. Her heartfelt vocals are matched with a stellar musical cast that includes saxophonist Kirk Whalum, pianist Gerald Clayton, guitarist Julian Lage, harmonica virtuoso Gregoire Maret, and Grammy-winning arranger Gil Goldstein. Helmed by Grammy-nominated producer Matt Pierson, Embraceable reached top 20 on jazz and smooth jazz radio charts.

Growing up in a musical family in Bucks County, PA, Nicole immersed herself in the arts early on, singing in school and church, and studying cello and ballet. After graduating from the University of Miami with a degree in Communications and Theatre, Nicole launched a successful acting career, appearing in commercial roles as well as a series of voiceover assignments. But she directed her strongest passion toward the development of her full-time singing career which was quickly rewarded in her present hometown, when the Miami New Times named Nicole “Best Solo Musician 2002.” She continues to be a winner on every stage she graces.
