Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
Abby Nicole is the 15 year old daughter of Sef Idle from False Idle. Her debut ep comes from MMLJ Records, Thumper Punk’s sister label. So it’s a family affair!
Abby’s debut ep isn’t complicated. Just her and a guitar, with the occasional percussive instrument. But it’s powerful and beautiful. Musically, although it might not be much, Abby’s guitar sounds fantastic! Deep, rich, and clear. Vocally and lyrically, you’d never know that Abby Nicole is only 15. Her voice is every bit as rich as the guitar tone, and the lyrics are deep and worshipful. Not the type of song you’d expect from a 15 year old. Abby isn’t a pop artist. She’s a singer-songwriter that’s to be taken seriously. These 5 songs showcase a girl who, if she wanted, could have a long career.
I thoroughly enjoy this record. The songs are heartfelt and comforting. It’s unencumbered by anything flashy, truly giving Abby the floor to shine. I hope to hear more from Abby Nicole in the future. 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
