Mom of three wonderful "children" (all grown and theoretically moved out), Grandmaman to a vibrant little creature who's running us off our feet (yay! ), I am also a person who keeps being amazed at how much there is to learn yet.
By day, I am a creative coach and music manager, and by night - a house concert and silent book club host, a crocheter, a lover of books, music and coffee. From our home in the urban west end of the city to our off-grid, solar-powered cottage, we live a life that is never static... never boring. It means a lot to me to have the opportunity to shift my thinking when it comes to economy, gifting, sharing and exchanging. Please... reach out to me.
From my work website: "Nicole Colbeck has honed her skills through the various events and management opportunities on her path since 1996. From promotion to production, from planning to management, all aspects of events and career management have been part of the experience that goes into what little acorn music management is today. little acorn creative coaching began its journey in November of 2010. With a focus on artist management partnerships, Nicole also consults with artists on an occasional basis. Whether working with artists on individual projects or strategizing with them through long term career plans, Nicole's insights are both fresh and seasoned, offering a perfect blend of irreverence and respect for what's gone before."
Since 2020, creative coaching and big picture visioning with musicians and other creative entrepreneurs has been my bliss.
In addition to all this, my family and I have hosted dozens of house concerts in our living room. These have allowed us to open our doors to international touring artists, supporting live music and the creators who make it happen; and it has permitted us to bring that music to people through an intimate, magical experience.
