Nikole Potulsky grew up in small towns, at the kitchen tables of working women who taught her to read cards, listen for deeper meaning, make her own money, and never back down. Her stories often chronicle the lives of these women- mothers, grandmothers, counterfeiters, fortune tellers, bar owners, gamblers, arsonists, divorcees, and mistresses. She connects their stories of rebellion and resistance to her own, and raises up parallel stories of resilience. Nikole writes to reminds us that there is beauty and power in everything, particularly the darkness, the unspoken, the lost, and the forgotten.
In addition to the recent release of her debut LP, You Want To Know About Me – Potulsky is a heralded essayist, activist, public speaker and proud member of the LGBTQ community.
