Singer/songwriter Niccole Blaze and her bassist, Mo Kelly, draw an audience with their compelling lyrics and angelic harmonies that audiences say "open your heart and tear it apart at the same time." With influences ranging from Bonnie Raitt to the Indigo Girls, they are known for their comic banter both on and off the stage.
They were voted Boise’s “Most Busiest Band” (Boise Weekly) and after teaming up and touring since 2004, others cities are falling captive to their musical wooing. “It is tempting to comparing them to bands like the Indigo Girls, which they are not, but if you must compare, compare them to Xanex, Celexa, or Prozac because they are better than any mood lifter on the market!” according to their official biography.
Mo Kelly originated from the wine country of northern California. Niccole Blaze came from a small town in South Jersey. East met West in “potato land” of the Northern Idaho panhandle. The stories that brought them there were based in their desire for better, wholesome living, and love for the great outdoors. Both had an affinity for beautiful sceneries and Idaho’s mountainous landscapes.
After meeting and playing in virtually all the venues that could be played in the area and a 300 mile radius around Sandpoint, they both decided change would do them good, so they took off for the sunnier side of Idaho, settling in Boise. There, Mo focused on the fretless 5 string bass, something most bass players wouldn’t attempt until 10 years of playing a regular 5 string. “She has a keen ear,” Niccole affirms and how she sings the
highs and plays the lows is just fascinating to witness.”
