<p>"<em>Nicole Gordon has such an amazing voice, attitude and spirit. Her</em></p>
<p><em>singing has a special tone and quality I've been looking to add to my</em></p>
<p><em>music for a while. Nicole is a total pro and very easy to work with in the</em></p>
<p><em>studio. She'll try new ideas and take them to the next level. My only</em></p>
<p><em>regret about Nicole is not working with her sooner</em>."</p>
<p>- <strong>Ted Wulfers</strong> -Singer/songwriter Producer</p>
<p>"<em>Nicole Is not only a beautiful singer, but also a joy to work with in the studio.&nbsp;She brings great performances on the first take, but is sensitive&nbsp;enough to ask for direction in order to get the perfect blend of inspiration and purpose in the final take. Nicole digs deep within and gives a performance that not only nails the melody, but the emotion as well and that is the absolute best you can ask for in a vocalist</em>." - <strong>Chris Karn</strong> Producer/General Public)</p>
<p>"<em>I have hired Nicole quite a bit lately to sing harmony vocals for film soundtracks and albums I'm working on. I love working with her. She comes up with harmonies with ease and they are always great! She is on the top of my list to call</em>."</p>
