Nicole Rampersaud

Trumpet Player and Composer Nicole Rampersaud (she/her) relocated to New Brunswick after spending over a decade firmly establishing herself in Toronto's music community to embark on a series of new projects as a leader. In addition to a long-standing solo trumpet practice, Nicole is a member of Joseph Shabason's band, Brodie West's jazz octet Eucalyptus, and is a founding member of the trio c_RL alongside Allison Cameron and Germaine Liu. Her resourceful versatility has led to collaborations with everyone from Anthony Braxton to Joe Morris, and from Ra-Kalam Bob Moses to Sandro Perri. She was named EVERYSEEKER's (formerly OBEY Convention) inaugural Composer-In-Residence in 2019, where she premiered a site-specific piece that celebrated the depth and breadth of Halifax's experimental music community. Nicole’s compositions have been performed at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival in Wales, the Festival of New Trumpet Music in New York, and the Tone Deaf Festival in Kingston.
