Nicole Moses: The Answer (Scruffy² Music, 2005)

Canadian indie artists are often overlooked by other collectors but if you can find them, they more than deserve a proverbial seat at the table with their Southern counterparts. Hailing from Ontario, the above work was produced by James "Homegrown" McQuaid, who was formally a member of Canadian hip hop duo MCJ & Cool G and one of the first hip hop acts North of the border to be signed to a major label. The sound is somewhat reminiscent to Mary J. Blige or even Angie Stone but with slightly more sophisticated appeal. The artist now goes by the name "Nikki Mo" and in 2015, released a single "Take Care" to CDBaby.com.
