A sought-after model and actor, and currently a host of MTV Canada, multifaceted entertainer Nicole Holness represents the inspired direction of Canada’s Destiny’s Child phenomenon, X-Quisite. With a series of "#1"s at radio, this starlet is also seen daily on TV sets across Canada and worldwide.

Biography

With the inspired direction of Nicole as its founding member, X-Quisite took the music world by storm with the 2002 hit "No Regrets". The single burst onto Canadian radio airwaves and became that year's most played song in numerous Canadian categories, demanding Canada's attention even before release of the much-anticipated album. X-Quisite's "Bad Girl" and "Sassy Thang" (9th most played of the year 2004) infiltrated radio, leaving listeners eager to hear more from the young star of X-Quisite, Nicole Holness.

Hailing from a Jamaican, British, Irish, Scottish, and East Indian background, Nicole draws from similarly diverse musical influences. Fans can rest assured that Nicole wont be straying far from X-Quisite's roots, but they can certainly expect to hear a bold evolution from the debut material thanks to powerhouse collaborators including multiple Juno nominated Producer Trey Mills, Grammy winning Platinum mix engineer Ken Lewis (Kanye West, Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Beastie Boys, Lenny Kravitz), Frankie Biggz (50 Cent, Eminem, Madonna), and guest appearances from Peep Sho and The Show (EMI), as well additional artists to be announced.

A sought-after actor and model, Nicole is currently a host of MTV and is working on the second X-Quisite album, which is slated for a 2007 release (Opening Day/Universal).
