Nicole Jane is a vocal trio consisting of brothers, Jace B Carreira, Alfie-J Carreira, and Dieu Carreira. Officially forming as a musical collective in 2006, Nicole Jane capped off the year by winning the Official UK Unsigned Contest; a nationwide talent competition which each year attracts tens of thousands of musicians across all genres from all over the UK competing to be crowned the best unsigned act in the country.
Following the victory at the Official UK Unsigned Contest, the buzz had started and Nicole Jane were called to support major USA R&B superstars Ne-Yo and Timberland on their UK tours. Multi-platinum selling star Lamar got word of Nicole Jane’s buzz and requested they join him on his UK album tour.
NJ was literally blowing away audiences with their high energy shows on stage with their pitch perfect vocals and innovative performances. The climax came after their supporting performance at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo. By the end of 2007, Nicole Jane had performed over 500 shows.
By the time 2008 had started, Nicole Jane’s show stealing reputation had reached Europe where they spent the majority of the year touring all over countries including Russia, Romania, the Czech Republic. 2008 also saw the group rise to even greater heights by being crowned the number one unsigned R&B pop group by MySpace with over 2 million plays on their page. All without a major label push.
