Nicolette Josanne Blount
I am a member of the Chickasaw tribe. I'm a mom, singer, actress, composer, writer, lyricist, and producer. I am currently working on Savage the Musical, savagethemusical.com, based on the true redemption story of my 1920s Chickasaw starlet Great Grandma Wanda Savage; a mom who faces misogyny, racism, whitewashing, and abuse while trying to work her way up in entertainment.
I am a classically trained vocalist, although I prefer jazz, blues, pop and rock. I have been in a few operas and numerous musicals. I sang and toured in California and Hawaii. I wrote and recorded my first album in 2014 called Conversations. I put out a few singles and an EP for Savage the Musical that has been streamed over 40K times on all music platforms. I love writing new and fresh sounding musical theater music combining different styles with pop that can cross over. For example, Savage is jazz and blues inspired pop with some elements of rock.
Recently Savage the Musical had its first developmental production at Ja'Duke Theater in MA with 4 performances that garnered 4 standing ovations. Savage the Musical received first runner up for Broadway World's 2022 Regional Boston Awards for Best New Musical (nonprofessional). I was a coproducer on A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet and am an investor for the Museum of Broadway and Millennials are Killing Musicals. Recently some of my music was featured in Women of the Wings at 54 Below and my cowriter and I received honorable mention in the 2022 American Playwriting Foundation's Relentless Award for Savage the Musical. I am a a member of the Dramatist Guild, ASCAP, SGA, PAAL and Beyond Music.
