Hooray! We have reached 25% of our Patreon goal!! Hello, this is Nicole’s friends Carolyn and Ruth sending out an update for all of you about the Patreon fundraising campaign currently happening on Nicole’s behalf. We are using the Patreon model because Nicole is an artist.

I’m glad to be working on this campaign for Nicole Edwards Music. Nicole is a highly praised Yukon, singer, songwriter, artist, friend and neighbour.

Community-driven Care-giving

Nicole has had over a year to be lying on the couch thinking of creative ideas, and she is fully motivated to make a contribution with her art in this last chapter of her life.

As most of you know, Nicole was diagnosed with scleroderma in 2001, an auto-immune connective tissue disease. Although, Nicole was stable for several years her condition has progressed to include Raynaud’s, Lyme Disease, Hashimoto’s and Adrenal Exhaustion.

About Nicole Edwards Music

“Adventurous new album from critically acclaimed Yukon songstress is her best yet”

Nicole Edwards – Genre Bender

Nicole Edwards is a jazz, blues, folk, rock singer/songwriter living with Scleroderma in the Yukon. Nicole’s 5th album ‘Genre Bender’ is a deeply moving and personal album that shines with beauty and conviction. It’s ambitious, thrilling, at turns funny and heart-breaking. Audiences are uplifted and inspired by her positive and playful songs, performed in English, French and Spanish. Instead of being locked into one category, she plays with different styles and chooses a genre to best serve each song.

Acclaimed Canadian Musician

In a career that has taken her to barrooms and ballrooms, Nicole has shared the stage with the Sam Roberts Band, Ken Whiteley, Bif Naked, John Mays, Scott Merritt & Brandon Isaak. She’s been a featured artist at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, Hugh’s Room in Toronto, and the Dawson City Music Festival. Nicole also earned a West Coast Music Award nomination for her work and an invitation to perform at the event’s televised gala celebration. In December 2016 Nicole received a Meritorious Service Medal from the Governor General.
