Event Description: 

Nicole Witt is a nationally-touring, award-winning Nashville songwriter and multi-instrumentalist known for the soaring melodies and clever turns of phrase that have brought her national acclaim in the country, bluegrass and Christian music scenes. With a voice that’s part Adele, part Patty Griffin, she conveys a level of emotion and sincerity scarce in modern music. Whether she’s behind a piano or upfront with her guitar or fiddle, Witt delivers live performances led by that gorgeous voice, and anchored by her charm.

Music is in her blood. Witt’s father was a square dancer on the famed Ozark Jubliee television program. Her grandparents were both bluegrass musicians – a full-circle moment she couldn’t miss as she accepted the International Bluegrass Music Association Award for Song of the Year for Balsam Range’s version of “Trains I Missed” at the Ryman Auditorium in 2011. Witt has cuts by Lee Brice, Lauren Alaina, Rodney Atkins, George Strait, Terri Clark, Balsam Range, Mandisa, Ellie Holcomb and many more. In 2014, she was nominated by the Gospel Music Association for Country Song of the Year. Witt is starting to write for the Film and TV world with placements on American Idol and the show Reign, as well as composing the score for the short film “Black Mountain.”

Witt is also a part of the hot new country band Farewell Angelina. With Farewell Angelina she has played to numerous sold-out rooms across the country, often receiving standing ovations for the band’s dynamic performances, stellar songwriting, and gorgeous harmonies. 2019 looks to be a breakout year for FA with a winter release of their brand new EP called Women & Wine, a World Premiere video of their song “Ghosts” on CMT, and a European tour this summer that will take them to Switzerland, Norway and Spain. They are currently on the Women & Wine Tour II and are coming to a town near you!
