Nicole Bloomsmith

A Chicago native (Lombard, represent!), Nikki found her first artistic home at the College of DuPage, where she studied as a Belushi Acting Scholar. There she met the charming Aly Renee Amidei, who introduced her to Strawdog. The rest is herstory!

Chicago credits include the likes of Steppenwolf, Northlight, The Hypocrites, Griffin, Lifeline, Trap Door, and Oracle. She was recently featured at Strawdog as featherbrained Miss Leighton in Once in a Lifetime and as eponymous host of the late-night cabaret Bloomsmith and The City, Nikki headlines her quirky originals, fun covers, and the hottest musicians in the city.

A singer/songwriter and violinist, she loves the Smiths, little Buddhas, Sigourney Weaver, and the Chicago Bulls.
