The work of Nicolette Blount will presented at 54 Below as part of Women of The Wings Volume 4: A Celebration of Female Musical Theatre Writers on September 30th at 9:30pm.

Nicolette Blount is a proud voting tribal member of the Chickasaw Nation, a musical theatre composer, lyricist, writer, performer, producer and mother to three girls. She is the cowriter, composer and lyricist for Savage the Musical, a story about her 1920s Chickasaw starlet great grandma, Wanda Savage; a single mother who faced adversity for a shot at fame in Vaudeville and silent films. Savage the Musical first debuted in NYC selling out two concerts at the 2019 NYMF (Laurie Beechman Theatre, Director Rachel Klein, Music Director Kevin Lynch).

In April 2022 Savage put on a four performance developmental production at the Ja'duke Theater in Massachusetts, receiving nighty standing ovations to a packed house. Nicolette's unique combination of jazz-influenced pop with hints of blues has garnered Savage the Musical's EP over 37 thousand streams. Nicolette can be heard on Take My Shot and Warrior as well as on backup vocals.

Savage the Musical has drawn over 9 thousand social media followers, over 5 thousand alone on Instagram. She is an investor in the Museum of Broadway and is a coproducer for A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet. Nicolette is a member of Dramatist Guild, ASCAP, Maestra, Beyond Music, and the Parents Advocacy League for Performing Arts and Media. Nicolette continues her work on Savage the Musical with her cowriter Lindel Hart and her director Rachel Klein in preparation for a 29 Hour Reading and a NYC concert in the near future.
