About Nicole

Nicole’s job as a music buyer is just one reason we want to steal her iPod. Her love of hip-hop and show tunes (but not hip-hop show tunes) combined with her inventive dance moves (sexy robot, anyone?) and amazing voice also make this secretly shy Buffalo native a karaoke genius. With a love of Korean food, RuPaul and bargain shopping, you never know what awesome direction a conversation with Nicole may take. And she has an amazingly cute dog whose name is Megabite!

Banger Alert: Future Brown – Wanna Party Ft. Tink

First things first: Fatima Al Qadiri is a creative genius. Born in Senegal, raised in Kuwait and currently living in Brooklyn, she’s both a visual artist and musician/producer.

Can’t Wait for Six by Sondheim

Can’t Wait for Six by Sondheim

When it comes to naming my favorite musical, I find myself torn between Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar and Stephen Sondheim’s Company. But…when it comes to naming my favorite musical theater composer/lyricist/creator – hands down, it’s Sondheim. Where ALW sometimes ventures into over-dramatic schlock (which I still, admittedly, love), SS takes a subtler approach,(…)
