Shelley Nicole is a singer, writer, composer, actor, poet, musician and a healer. I Am American, her latest work, is a collection of songs written by her and produced by award-winning guitarist, composer and producer Vernon Reid of the band Living Colour. I Am American is forged from the connective tissue of rock, soul, blues, jazz and funk into a seamless, genre-defying blend while tackling the hard questions of women reclaiming their cultural identity, their psychic refuge and their personal agency. The project is part of the continuum of audacious, self-confident and eclectic Black sisterhood that extends from Rosetta Tharpe to Nina Simone to Betty Davis to Labelle to Joan Armatrading to Meshell Ndegeocello.
