Nicole Chambers is a Canadian songwriter making music that speaks of truth, love, and self-growth. Raised by the sounds of the gospel via church, Chambers never considered music as a career until a high school teacher encouraged her to pursue it, taking a leap of faith she went to college to study jazz. With a new set of refined technical and songwriting skills, she felt much more confident stepping into music, reflected on her debut EP How Could I Forget. Since then, Chambers has emerged onto Toronto’s R&B scene by collaborating with various producers and artists building a loyal community of fans around her music. Introducing an essential new voice on the R&B scene, Nicole Chambers is the self-proclaimed perfectionist who after three years of work is ready to release a collection of skilled, emotive, and honest songs in her upcoming album.
“‘I’m Fine’ is about me suppressing my emotions. I walk around telling everybody that I’m fine, in a high pitched voice followed with a huge grin on my face, when in reality I am not. The inspiration came from my group of friends as I started noticing they were doing it too. We are so called pros at pretending that we are handling everything so well, when we clearly aren’t.
Yes, our emotions are heavy and messy but without them we wouldn’t be able to clear so many blocks. I feel my generation is slowly realizing that, It’s okay to not be okay, it’s okay to suffer from anxiety and depression, but it’s not ok to suppress your thoughts and feelings.” – Nicole Chambers
