Nominated for Best Singer/Songwriter in the 2015 (and currently 2017) San Diego Music Awards, Raelee Nikole owns up to her hometown’s reputation and is proving herself to be one of America’s finest. After several years of making waves in the local music scene, she released her debut album, “Answers” last summer, which has since sold thousands of copies digitally and physically worldwide. It was no surprise that 2016 would arrive along with warranted success, including multiple West Coast tours and landing a spot at number six on Spotify’s US Viral 50 Playlist with her song, Dreamin’. When it comes to the recipe for success, her good-for-the-soul-songs mixed with a voice like butter make for an artist on the rise that is certainly one to watch.
