A unique combination of folk and rock, Nicole Stella's songs are an authentic and poetical portrait of life as an independent artist. With her peculiar sound, on the edge between classic songwriting and contemporary rock, she has delivered three albums so far: New Day (2015), Something To Say (2017), and Canzoni Per Vivienne (2018). Nicole Stella works as a completely independent performing and recording artist.
Something To Say
Independently produced and released, "Something To Say" crosses the border of folk and acoustic music, to offer a variegate tracklist, where pop-rock tunes, intimate ballads, folksongs, blues and electro-rock experiments all sit together. For this project Nicole involved three other musicians, who masterly enriched her sound: Claudio Benvenuto (electric and slide guitar on "Sometimes", "Houdini", "Something To Say", "Night Of Light", "Plastic"), Giorgio Campera (bass on "Sometimes" and "Something To Say") , and Davide Lepido (drums on "Sometimes", "Houdini" and "Something To Say"; synth on "Plastic"). The album deals with freedom, seen as a constant research. A few songs metaphorically use well-known cultural references to outline a description of freedom and the struggle to achieve it. In "Houdini", for example, the great escapologist is a symbol of liberty. On the other hand, "Something To Say" presents the idea of freedom seen as silence, especially in these times of loud talks.
