Genre – Country
Ontario Female country singer, Nicole Rayy, has released her debut EP called ‘Only Everything’. The six song release shows her songwriting skills from songs that are very country to songs that have more of a pop sound to them.
The song with the heaviest country sound to it is the aptly named “Country Wild”. My favourite songs off of the EP would have to be “Still See Blue Skies”, which has a Sarah McLaughlin type of vibe to it, as well as “She Don’t Know That Much”. The songs have varying styles between country and pop, but altogether blend very well on the EP.
All in all, I enjoyed the debut from Nicole. The EP had a mix of country and slower songs, allowing it to appeal to more than a country audience. It has a quality to it that will surprise you when you know that it was her debut EP.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
