After 12 years in the Int'l electro/house music scene with several releases, remixes furthering her music career, Nicole Graham has truly earned her distinction as an Electronic Jazz Diva. What sets her apart is her ability to adapt, "choreograph" and morph her voice, songwriting and vocal arranging to various beats and breaks blending jazz, soul, pop, blues, groove and folk into a unique electro-based commercial sound that is entirely her own.

-"As a performer, she is mesmerizing in stature, stage presence and dance style." Nicole Graham has, in fact, been a professional stage dancer for most of her artistic career, in both cabaret musicals- Moulin Rouge: Paris, France- and musical comedy touring companies. She is available for club PA dates, where dance is always adaptable in the ambiance of a club gig.

-From the release of her first single with Virgin/Labels record company in France, she has consistently gained international recognition as a preferred and marketable talent, having had her songs licensed to over 60+ music compilations to date, including brands in this genre as high profile as Ministry of Sound and Hotel Costes. In addition to club dates, she has also performed at such notable dance music venues as MIDEM and the Winter Music Conference. Her music has also been extensively licensed to film and television in France.

Deeper Into Me (You and Me)

Written By: Nicole Graham

DEEPER INTO ME (You and Me)

Can you feel it stirring deeper now
Slowly you crept in
My heart
Could it be
All I really want
Is to feel you
Close to me

Is this
All I ever dreamed
Waiting here so
Patiently
Amazing and enthralling me
As we float
Into
The sea

It’s stirring
Deeper into me
I feel it
We were meant to be
You and me

It’s turning over in my mind
Have I missed the simple things
You were always
Right there
So close
Just one move
One step away

Now it is more real than real
Lying here so quietly
An extraordinary dream
Taking me away to peace

It’s stirring
Deeper into me
I feel it
We were meant to be
You and me

It’s stirring
Deeper into me
I feel it
We were meant to be
You and me

And I
Feel the rhythm of all that was before and evermore
Slowly pushing me to the brink
Overflowing now
I never thought it would ever be
And now I know
We were meant to be
You and me

Who's This

Written By: Nicole Graham

Who’s This
(Moderate Rock/Funk Ballad)

I'm in the mood for something new
Are you feelin' it too? (2x)

Don’t think
All ya gotta do is try
Don’t try
Do and it shall be done
I’m done tryin’ to convince you
To be mine

Don’t run
Stay and you’ll see the light
Illuminate truth and lies
Does anybody evah wonder
Evah wonder

Who’s this
Takin’ control of the situation
I’m here to tell you
It’s me
And who’s this
Not backing down from a confrontation
I’m here to tell you that it’s
Me

I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight

Don’t cry
Cryin’s for the past
We’ve got to make love last
We were inseparable
Before

Don’t lose my love again
Open your heart and let it in
And don’t you evah wonder
Who’s in charge

Who’s this
Takin’ control of the situation
I’m here to tell you
Again
And who’s this
Not backing down from this confrontation
With myself
I’m here to tell you that it’s
Me

I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight
Won’t you
Play on
Play on

Mmmmmmmm, yeah, yeah, oh
We were inseparable
We were inseparable
Now it’s over
And it’s my time
Are you feeling it too

I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight
Won’t you
Play on
Play on
I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight
Iiiiiiiii’m
I’m not myself tonight, I’m not myself tonight
I’m not myself tonight

You Look Good

Written By: Nicole Graham

You Look Good
(Moderate Blues Funk Ballad)

TO THOSE OF YOU WHO DIDN’T GET IT THE FIRST TIME
LISTEN UP

I musta been mistaken
My confidence is shaken
To find that you’re a playa
After all this time

First Lisa then Tomika
Diana then Shaneequa
Now no more sleepless nights
And no more lies

For five years of my life I thought I’d be your wife
Instead I’m alone in bed
Can’t get you out of my head
Baby

You look good
But you don’t do me no good
Just like I often felt
I can do bad for myself

I’m surprised
That I stayed for all this time
Get on out if you would
You don’t do me no good

Sometimes when you’re lonely
You think you have to only
Settle for what you got
Not get what you want

But trial and error’s shown me
No man can try to own me
‘Cause it’s not the wrapper, baby
It’s the package that counts

A pretty face don’t impress me
Not if it can’t caress me
Or send shivers down my spine
Let me say it one more time
(Baby you sho’ look good)

You look good
But you don’t do me no good
Just like I often felt
I can do bad for myself

I’m surprised
That I stayed for all this time
Get on out if you would
You don’t do me no good

They say that love is blind
Hmm
And beauty fades with time
Heeeey hey
You don’t know what I want
And you don’t know what I need
So I’m gonna
Find me another man
Who understands
The world is full of good lookin’ men
Wait a minute
I’ll say it again
Hey, nah na na

You look good
But you don’t do me no good
Just like I often felt
I can do bad for, bad for myself
And I’ll be better off alone

I’m surprised
That I stayed for all this time
Get on out if you would
Get out if you would
You don’t do me no good

And I’m sayin’
You don’t do me no good, hey
(Ad lib to end with chorus)

Indigo Blues

Written By: Nicole Graham

Indigo Blues

It’s a Mood Indigo

Mood indigo
In a sentimental mood
Mood indigo
Just keeps runnin’ through my mind
Just an old refrain that keeps on runnin’ through my brain

It’s blues
Don’t you know
Just another sad mistake I made
I couldn’t wait for you
I had to keep pushin’
Harder
And askin’
For your love
Don’t you see
I thought you were the one for me

Blues always gets me in a sentimental mood (4x)

(Change Tempo)

Mood indigo
Sophisticated swing
The moon hangs too low
Look to the fallin’ rain
Let it wash away your pain

Mood indigo
A simple word
A whisper
The smell of her perfume
I ask myself why I had to keep on pushin’
And askin’
(For your love)

Blues always gets me in a sentimental mood (2x)
Smokin’, drinkin’, never thinkin’
Blues

Blues
Ah ah-ah

Blues always gets me in a sentimental mood (2x)
Smokin’, drinkin’, never thinkin’
Blues

Blues
It’s a mood indigo

Next Time

Written By: Nicole Graham

Next Time

Baby I’m
I’m tired of bein’ used
Had enough of you
No way
Not letting you break my heart, no more

Don’t mess
Don’t mess
Don’t mess with me

I’ve been there seen it done it
I ain’t havin’ it
You see
You broke the rules
I thought you were cool
Sorry baby
But I’m not a fool

Baby I
I kept thinkin’ it was all fine
Tried to believe you were right
But you just wasted my time
And now
Now it’s over
And I am
Much wiser than before
Iiiiiii I am
Yes I am much wiser than before

Next time
I will take a minute to
Think before I do
No more runnin’
After you
And next time
I will put me first not you
It ain’t selfish if I do
If I’m going to love you

I’ve had
I’ve had
I have had my share
I was too open
Way too trustin’
Not goin’ there
I got burned
Now I have learned
How to forgive
But it’s hard to forget

I gave the best of my love
Gave my heart and soul
But you disrespected me
You thought you were gold
And it’s over now
And I am
Much wiser than before

Next time
I will take a minute to
Think before I do
No more runnin’
After you
And next time
I will put me first not you
It ain’t selfish if I do
If I’m going to love you
Love,love, love

Next time
I won’t play your silly games
I won’t take the blame
No more runnin’
After you
Just pay attention to me
And next time
I will put me first not you
It ain’t selfish if I do
If I’m going to love you

I gave you my heart
I gave you my soul
Disrespected me
I thought you were gold
I’m tired of games
I’m tired of lies
But I have to survive

Oh I
I gave you my heart
Gave you my soul
You disrespected me
Thought you were gold
No more games
And no more lies
But I have to survive

So pay attention to me
‘Cause I won’t step to you sweet
Next time
Just pay attention to me
‘Cause I won’t step to you sweet
Next time

Uh huh
Uh huh
Pay attention
‘Cause I won’t step to you sweet
No more games just stop wastin’ my time
Next time

Next time
I will take a minute to
Think before I do
No more runnin’
After you
And next time
I will put me first not you
It ain’t selfish if I do
If I’m going to love you
