Press Release for THIS BRIGHT BEFORE Dual Release Show 

Nicole Berke – Frondescence
2008, Nicole Berke – Wildy’s World- CD Reviews

“Nicole Berke is a breath of fresh air. Writing songs with a level of virtuosity comparable to Ben Folds, Nicole Berke exudes a warmth and vulnerability to buoy her lyric and multi-timbered voice. Frondescence is the biological term for bursting into leaf; a becoming. In the vernacular, it means blooming. Frondescence is a blooming for Nicole Berke, who comes out as an incredible talent with a bright future.” – Wildy’s World

“We’re glad Nicole Berke didn’t wait to record a full length CD because her debut EP release is a fabulous enough sample to help us all fall in love with her straight away.”

“Nicole Berke blew us away! Her talent and gumption for playing music made an impression on the council and the students at the show. Her soulful voice and playing of the piano with her honest lyrics struck the right chord with us and we hope to bring her back. She was brilliant.”  – Anna Rader, University of Wyoming

“Nicole Berke started off the night strong, with her soulful songs about love and otherwise. Her fantastic piano work complemented her sassy voice quite well, while her tight band backed her up solidly. The sounds ranged from Norah Jones, to some jazzy Nina Simone at times. She’s definitely a singer to watch as she continues to spread her talent throughout the Northwest.”  – Abe, BePortland

“Berke’s performance was a dazzling showcase of her singing, writing, and playing talents, a testament to the passion and efforts she poured into her debut. The crowd was the fortunate recipient of her debut full release, THIS BRIGHT BEFORE  and Portland is fortunate to be graced by the talents of Nicole Berke.” –  Pat Herrara, Snap Twig

“She’s got soul! You probably never heard of Nicole Berke but once you’ve listened to her soulful voice and skills on the ivories, you won’t forget her. The students at University of Wyoming certainly didn’t.” – Ian St. Clair, Wyoming Tribune Eagle

“I love listening to new artists that I’ve never heard before so I was looking forward to hearing Nicole Berke: This Bright Before. Her voice is so rich and powerful that I thought she was much older than she is. Nicole’s music has a jazzy sound to it but is also soulful with a bit of an R&B influence. I love the combination for a sound that is uniquely all her own. She also plays the keyboard and writes her own music making her even more of a multi talented artist. Putting her gifts together gives her the ability to focus on her strengths.” – The IE  Mommy
