The Joy Ride

Clouds can’t hide the Son.

Nichole Nordeman

Back in 1998, Nichole Nordeman's album Wide Eyed burst onto the scene with a sincerity and even a desperation that hadn't been heard in a while. Songs like To Know You and Who You Are were so unafraid to tackle doubt that the album ushered in a new era of songwriting in Christian music - paving the way for Sara Groves, David Crowder, Jason Gray and others.

16 years and 9 Dove Awards later - Nichole's voice is still a recognizable melancholy that grabs your attention. Though it has been several years since she's recorded a full length album, Nichole Nordeman has been busy songwriting with and for other artists, including Bethany Dillon and Amy Grant. She wrote and recorded songs for Music Inspired By the Chronicles of Narnia and VeggieTales' Sweetpea Beauty.

Perhaps her greatest accomplishment is co-writing the entire double disc album Music Inspired by The Story. This collection features 18 songs written from the first person perspective of Bible characters. It features the voices of the biggest names in Christian music (MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Natalie Grant, Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin, Brandon Heath and many more) - but Nichole actually co-wrote the entire project - music and lyrics!

Nichole also lent her voice to a new recording of Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus which is featured on a modern hymns collection called Jesus, Firm Foundation. Her latest single is from a compilation of songs inspired by the life and teaching of Billy Graham.
