It’s been a long quarter of great music but can you believe it’s not even over yet? One of Washington’s biggest names in country music is headed to Central Washington University Wednesday, Nov. 18 when Nicole Lewis takes the stage.
To say she’s a country music powerhouse would be selling her short. Since graduating from Gonzaga in 2008, this owner of a heavenly voice has been writing and performing her own music in addition to performing some incredible covers.
To experience shome chills and perhaps shed a tear or two, check out her live performance of “Hallelujah” with Luke Yates.
After winning the “Gimme the MIKE!” TV competition and driving away in her new Toyota Camry, Lewis has been sharing stages with Ben Folds, Vicci Martinez and other notable musical acts. She’s also appeared on other TV music competitions such as “American Idol” and “The Voice.”
When she takes the stage at the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) Pit tomorrow at 8 p.m. for her free concert, she’ll be playing music off her 2013 album, “My Kind of Paradise.”
Hits off the album such as “Hurricane” feature Lewis’ soft and sultry voice that can instantly ramp up as crashing guitars and steady drums fill the echo chamber with classic country music vibes.
It’s her acoustic sets, though, where Lewis’ impressive vocal range truly shines. Her ability to sing all kinds of different styles and pitches sets her apart from many other country music acts, and it doesn’t hurt that she could substitute in for Carrie Underwood or the Dixie Chicks without missing a beat.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of country music’s most impressive acts when Nicole Lewis rolls into town to play at the SURC Pit Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m.
