If you were like me in the late 90’s, chances were VERY high you were bumping solo and featured material from one particular LADY. Nicole Wray. The artist who laced several a track for music masterminds Missy Elliott, Timbaland and Damon Dash’s Rocafella, started her career off on a high note and spent years behind the scenes songwriting for other artists. Briefly collaborating with the Black Keys ( via BlacRoc) and Kid Cudi, Nicole next stepped back into the spotlight with a new look, new sound and a new band, Lady, in 2012, finding a new home in retro funk soul mecca, Truth and Soul Records.
Returning recently from touring Europe, I spoke with Nicole about the ups and downs in her 16 year career, the retro soul movement, working with Missy and Timbo, her new Lady album and more. Peep the interview soundclips and videos below! Follow Nicole on Twitter and Facebook for more album and tour info!
