19 years-old in 2014, Raelee Nikole was the winner of that year's Singer/Songwriter Competition at the San Diego County Fair. "It was my best local gig ever, on my nineteenth birthday," she says. "Although I only performed two songs, I can still remember the surreal feeling of the entire lawn singing with me and clapping along. All of my closest friends and family were there to support, most of the other contestants were friends of mine, and afterwards, everybody sang me happy birthday and we all went on the ferris wheel. It was the best day ever!"
"My worst gig would have to be a few years ago, when I was booked for a venue on the same night as a favorite band of mine was in town during their U.S. tour. I told myself that it was a sacrifice, however there ended up being zero people in the audience that night. They were probably all at the other show!
In 2015, Nikole was working on a new album, produced by Masen Larsen (Gregory Page, etc.).
