I mean, if it's gonna be this cold, there should be snow - right?

Britt Nicole

A native of Salisbury, NC, Britt has always had a heart for reaching people and has long used music as the vehicle to change lives. She began singing in church at age three and by the time she was in high school, was appearing on her church’s daily television program and logged a performance at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall with her school’s advanced chorus.

History: Those early pursuits paved the way for her to sign with Sparrow Records in 2006. She burst on the charts a year later with her label debut, Say It. It was a super-fun album with surprising lyrical depth - and it earned her a slot on the Winter Jam tour that year with Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeremy Camp, NewSong and Hawk Nelson where she developed a reputation as a compelling live performer.  It was in 2011 when she received her first Dove Award nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Abroad:Aside for making a name for herself in the states - Britt's pop-electronica stuff has been charting solidly in the UK. Expect a lot more from her in the future. Even in her early 20s, she's already a veteran in the new world order of Christian music.

Songwriting: Britt Nicole "write[s] whatever's in [her] heart."  Each song finds its roots deep within life experience.  Her hit All This Time stems from the heartache of her parents' divorce.  Stand is about rediscovering God's strength in your time of weakness.

Personal: This past July, Britt married Joshua Crosby (Drummer, Producer and Writer).  Congrats!
