Still working on that hot first release.



Daphne Nichols grew up in the wilderness of Eastern Maine trying to avoid moose and find piano lessons. Initially intrigued by classical music, she schemed about how to make it to a town with stoplights by playing Mozart. Aided by her musical family, she realized her dream at age sixteen when she was accepted to the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, Massachussetts. Her years at New England Conservatory’s Preparatory Department, Northwestern University, and Salem College saw her accrue several honors, including Maine’s Ocy Downs Piano Prize and several collegiate full-tuition scholarships in addition to being a finalist in the North Carolina Symphony Concerto Competition.

After graduating with her Bachelor of Music in 2009, Daphne traded in Mozart for originals. Her work, a pop/folk combination with recent jazz influences, alternately channels Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos and Ben Folds. A typical lyric will be deep but not sentimental, poetic but not abstruse. Confessional yet universal, her music showcases a full piano texture and a talent for precisely capturing a feeling in song. Her music will resonate with those who crave something different: popular music that both thinks and feels. Daphne is represented by SoundLizzard Productions.
