ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With the release of her debut album, “I Come Alive” still generating quite a buzz in the music industry, including a two song placement on the 56th Grammy Ballot for “Best Pop Solo Performance”, as well as, the inclusion of her track 'Beautiful' on Lifetime's highest-rated show 'Dance Moms', Nicki Kris has really raised the bar with her sophomoric effort. From the beginning, the instrumentation, unique song arrangements, and vocal performances truly encapsulate the listener. Nicki moves with ease between the storytelling of the title track, “Dream Big” and soulful surprises, such as “Fall Apart”. Her distinctive vocal tone and occasional light rasp instinctively capture the emotional essence of each heartfelt performance.

Notes from Nicki:
Earlier this year after talking with my Agent, it became clear that the type of music that I wanted to create and produce would have to bring together multiple genres, fit the tone of my voice, as well as give the fans something that they would want to listen too. After combing through my song library along with writing a new one or two, “Dream Big” is the culmination of my Alternative, Retro 50’s Rock, and Country musical obsessions. This is my vision of what Americana music means to me.

Keeping things simple was really hard for me, but adding a twang here and there actually came quite easy. I loved the whole concept of an acoustic influence, so I even bought a guitar that I still need to teach myself how to play.

The songs themselves are quite simple, yet engaging in my opinion. Some have a personal meaning, like the title song “Dream Big”, while others, such as “Does She Love You” were written because I wanted to give a voice to a different perspective. My goal with this EP was to give my fans more insight into the type of songwriter and vocalist I am. I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as I did writing and recording it.

To close things out, I would like to thank Al Gomes and A. Michelle with the rest of the Big Noise team for all of their insight, suggestions, AWESOME Album art, and most of all on-going support. Tarik Ghiradella for being the coolest drummer I know! Daniel DeLorenzo for his continued patience and thoughtful suggestions. My family and friends who continue to support and push me towards following this crazy dream of mine. To the Fans, old and new: remember you are never too old to DREAM BIG.
