Summary: Nicole Reynolds was born into a family of Pittsburgh steelworkers. This ancestry initially influenced her desire to write music as a means to convey the struggle of the working class. After completing a major in jazz guitar and composition and travelling West, she began to broaden her songwriting to encompass the universal themes of love, betrayal, disillusionment, and hope as well as issue-specific songs addressing war, sexuality, and health care. These and other topical concerns are incorporated into her 20 song debut release, Wolves Won't Eat Us, independently released in August of 2006.
