April 2018 Newsletter

While writing last month's newsletter I went looking for old archives of music from my old band lateforbingo and came across possibly the last of the internet presence we had left... our CBC Artist page. It made me realize... I don't remember the last time I actually updated my Nicola Linde CBC Artist page. I'm happy to say I've updated my band profile on CBC, so now you can stream my tracks on their site. As artists there are so many mediums for us to get our music out, it's hard to keep track sometimes. Does anyone remember MySpace? Yeah,…

March 2018 Newsletter

This month has been all about woodshedding. Sometimes as artists, we spend so much time performing songs that are already written, that we don't take time to learn new covers and write new songs. There's a lot that can be gained by learning cover songs. It's something that I used to shy away from... (Younger me: "I'm an original artist. I write my own music and I'm going to play MY songs!") ...but in reality, the cover songs are the ones that made us want to take up our instruments in the first place. Why not pay homage to them…

February 2018 Newsletter

It all started with a photoshoot... Last March, I booked a photoshoot with Colin Smith Photography in preparation of promoting my soon-to-be-released EP, Sightline. Having grown up in the Cowichan Valley, I was aware of this particular location and had visited the site several times over the years. I knew it would be the right backdrop for our session. I also knew that Colin (and his wife, Jeanette - who was a rockstar with the photography lights and overall enjoyment of the shoot in the freezing cold winter weather) would be extremely respectful of the grounds and the people that once…

January 2018 Newsletter

Happy New Year! I hope the beginning of 2018 is treating you right! It's the time of year that we all like to start making (and, seemingly soon after, breaking) new year's resolutions. Personally, I find resolutions to be strange; they seem to turn into rules that we make for ourselves for the upcoming year, as if the year itself will not be enjoyed unless we keep to these silly rules. I don't like to make resolutions. I like to make goals -  attainable goals - and plans on how to reach them. My first go-to goal of every year…

December 2017 Newsletter

"Another year over, and a new one just begun" - John Lennon I hope you all enjoyed the 2017 holiday season! As we all tend to do around this time of year, I like to look back on the last 12 months and reflect... and what a year this was! Some of the highlights of my year include: Sightline EP Release - I finally released my long-anticipated EP, Sightline, a full-band, 6 song EP, produced by Ed Lee of Broken Spiral Studios and mastered by Craig Waddell of Gotham City Studios. I celebrated the release at Gorge-ous Coffee (a cafe venue, set up like a house concert,…

New 2017 Show!

I am more than excited to let you know that I have just added one last show of 2017! I'll be playing at the Duncan Showroom on December 21st with my good friend Schayde Dame (celebrating her return to BC). For more info, check out the Upcoming Shows page.  

November 2017 Newsletter

It’s been a loooooooong time coming (or so it feels from this side of the computer screen)… but, alas, I have finally relaunched nicolalinde.com and it sure feels good to be able to share it with you! Please take a minute to check out everything the site has to offer. Having spent the last week or so going back through the recesses of Facebook posts and livevictoria.com concert listings to compile my archive show history for the shows page, I’ve learned (or, at least, reminded myself of) a few things: I love playing music. As musicians, sometimes it’s hard for us to remember why we work…

Coming Soon!

Thanks for coming to visit! This site is currently under maintenance, please check back again soon!
