Serena Nicolle

More from this show

Phoenix-based singer-songwriter Serena Nicolle joined us in the Arizona PBS studios to share her songs “Meteor” and “Above Ground.” Nicolle’s signature style of indie-pop has made her music instantly recognizable and popular.

She grew up listening to Queen, Supertramp and Phil Collins, and her love for music was fostered by her high school’s music program, which gave her opportunities to perform in various locations across the Valley.

“When I was about 11 years old, I did my first talent show and I auditioned through my choir. I did my first solo ever,” Nicolle said. “At the end, I was just like a deer in headlights. The silence at the end felt like forever, and then everyone was like, ‘Oh my god, Serena, yes!’ and I was like, ‘Wow, I can make people feel things with my singing.’”

She usually plays the acoustic guitar, ukulele and piano during her performances, and hopes to one day have a world tour.

“The best part is when people get to tell me that I made them feel something in their heart,” Nicolle says of her love for performing.

Make sure to check out her upcoming EP coming up next month!
