Tuned In to Nicole Reynolds

Nicole Reynolds' warm, folk melodies bring listeners into the heart of the Pittsburgh songwriter. Having been born into a family of steelworkers, Reynolds initially wanted to write to convey the struggle of the working class. However, her music has since taken flight into her personal life ... being shaped by relationships and life battles. "I like writing about everything, anything that's on my mind," she said.

Nicole began playing the guitar in college, where she majored in jazz guitar and composition. She has only been writing songs for the last two years, but has discovered an outlet for her amazing talents writing one to two songs a week! Nicole tells us, "It's such a release. It's like therapy ... I just love it. It's my passion."

Her debut album Wolves Won't Eat Us was independently released in August of 2006. Her second album, This Arduous Alchemy, was released in October of last year and is available on her website.

We filmed Nicole Reynolds as she performed at WXPN's Musicians on Call concert. The show featured artists who volunteer to play bedside for patients at area hospitals. Reynolds is looking forward to performing for the ill, saying, "I'm sure it's a little bit of a release for the patients to have someone come in and get their minds off of things."
