Though she’s nowhere near her peak yet, Nia Nicole touches us with her smooth, soulful, extremely intimate recordings. It’s just you and her on “From Here” as the Atlanta-based transplant, backed by shimmering electric piano chords, intones about the former bestie she has not seen or heard from in far too long. Hearing her share these feelings with an oblivious pre-pubescent is truly moving. On her best song, the spry, upbeat “VHS,” Nicole delivers a cool vibe blushed with retro-jazzy keyboard tones and an engaging autobiographical flow. Clearly, Nicole has a persona, a voice, that is popular at the moment. It’ll be interesting to see how she and her associates build upon her natural abilities.
