Nicole Johänntgen (born 1981 in Fischbach, south Germany) is a German jazz musician (alto, soprano saxophone) and composer. At the age of six she started up with classical piano and a few years later she discovered her passion for the saxophone.

Her first stage experiences she gathered in her fathers’ Joe Fuchs Band, aged thirteen. Furthermore she enchanted the audience in different Jazz-Combos, like saarländisches Jugendorchester.

By founding the band „NICOLE JO“, the young musician broke through. Since then, NICOLE JO released six CDs. The Latest one is called Colours (Rel. Nov. 2014).

Nicole Johänntgen studied jazzsaxophon, compositon and arrangement in Mannheim until 2006. The most important mentor was Dave Liebman. Besides she took a lesson by Phil Woods.

Since 2005 Johänntgen lives ins Zürich (CH) as a musician, composer, teacher and ambassador.

In Oktober 2010 she leaded a Masterclass at Washington University in Saint Louis (USA). Furthermore she worked as a Tutor during the „woman’s music week“ in Hessen, Germany.

From Juli 2011 – August 2013 she had her own radio show „Die rote Sieben“ at Radio LoRa in Zürich.

In 2013 she founded the project SOFIA – Support Of Female Improvising Artists. The pionier project forwards the musicians in improvisation and direct marketing in today’s difficult music business. During the project the musicians released two CDs.

Dave Liebman: “Nicole has something very special in her playing – a big and generous heart. She plays like her life depends on it and draws anyone within range into the center of her music. An exceptional energy!”
