New Radio Single National Release "Somebody" 10 WEEKS in TOP 100 CHART; TOP 10 for 11
Top 100 10 weeks Smooth Jazz Network! For Lori’s 2023 new radio single release "Somebody", which she describes as a “feel good, piano-sax, funk-pop Smooth Jazz song - laid back, with a little bit of sass", she features the talented and energetic Justin Young, whose sax playing is as versatile and appealing as Lori’s songwriting. Young is a regular performer in Las Vegas, which has become one of the world’s top cities for live music, and has been on Billboard Jazz Chart. Lori and Justin’s co-producing of “Somebody”, essentially a “coast to coast” effort, reflects the original recording by Lori and studio musicians in the Washington DC area with mixing and mastering, and sax, of course, at Young’s “JustnTime” Recording Studios in Vegas.

About the Artist: Lori Nicely is a Washington DC area based composer, arranger, and producer whose lush piano and instrumental music offers a unique experience and escape. Lori's music has been on Top 10 commercial radio including Adult Contemporary / Smooth Jazz, on TV, and used in TV / media awards shows (The Gracie Awards in New York), and in the Peabody Award winning "American Presidents: Life Portraits" series. Her “Best Climate Change” music video recently got the attention of producers at WaterBear Network, the “Netflix” for environmental videos, who have added her as a composer for potential future projects.
Lori, originally from Virginia, is a natural and taught herself piano at age 9, completely playing by ear. She began composing around age 12. She was formally trained in trumpet at age 12 and performed jazz, concert, and pop/rock music through high school (Alleghany) and college (Radford), playing in concert, jazz, pep, and symphonic bands, and even played in a backup horn section for a local rock band. Throughout high school and college, she was hired frequently to play piano because she could play the latest pop hits, not needing sheet music, and did her own arrangements. She also played piano at churches, pageants, and other local events. Lori also plays guitar.
As Lori started to record her music professionally, she realized her true passion is composing music and song writing / recording.
Lori's music has been compared to pop icon "Hit Man" David Foster, for her strong melodies, lyrical piano, and lush instrumentation, but all for the 21st century. She worked directly with Foster's sax player for movie soundtracks and pop hits, David Boruff, who was a featured soloist on several of her tracks, among them "Our Secret" and "When You Are Here". Lori's music videos, available on her YouTube Channel "Lori Nicely Official", are "mini movies" about modern life, relationships, and love, supported by her uniquely beautiful and moving soundtracks. Her music and videos "tell a story without words" and cross several genres, ages, and demographics, appealing to audiences in pop, Smooth Jazz, contemporary piano instrumental, and film soundtrack.
