Born and raised in Oakland, CA, it wasn’t until after she finished college that she began to develop her gift as a vocalist. The long-time educator, who holds a Master’s in Education Administration, Tamika spent days working in corporations and classrooms and her nights performing, preparing for auditions or recording sessions.

“There is a realness I get to draw from — like the frustrations of trying to balance career with a social life, community issues, dating, and all those things that concern GenXers like me as we work to achieve our dreams,” says Tamika.

While working on her latest project, Tamika Nicole has set the stage to broaden her music career. Her theatre credits in San Francisco include the 2007 productions of Hair and The Wizard of Oz.

She has been a featured performer at San Francisco Grammy events, Yoshi’s San Francisco, fundraisers for Terri Vaughn’s foundation, and Pete Escovedo’s Latin Jazz Club. In 2009, Tamika received accolades all over the world for “The Art of Letting Go” culminating in her earning five First Round Grammy Nominations for her music.

Tamika Nicole, known in the Bay Area for her raw, gritty sound and high-octane performances shows her versatility on her latest release “Get It Right”.  On “Get It Right”, Tamika reunited with producer Jimi Fischer (The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Steve Winwood, etc.) to produce a modern day anthem which incorporates Funk, Blues, and R & B. Believing life is about the journey, Tamika and Jimi crafted “Get It Right” to be a call for people to take a look at what’s going on in our community.
