"TAKOMA SESSIONS" - Live Album (out now)

Singer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist Nicole Saphos’ musical identity can be categorized somewhere between jazz and indie rock. In her latest musical endeavor—the twelve-track live album Takoma Sessions — the Los Angeles-bred, DC-based artist delivers a sequence of groove-heavy, pop-friendly originals, complimented by bold vocal harmonies. The live album was recorded in Takoma Park, MD over the course of three in-studio concerts in the Fall of 2019, and is now available everywhere!
