Nicole Martin is a Francophone singer/songwriter and producer from Quebec, Canada, with an adult pop style whose career peaked in popularity during the late '70s and early '80s. Born on September 29, 1949, in Donnacona, Quebec, she began her recording career in 1967 as a member of the duo Nicole et Frédéric and embarked on her solo career a few years later. Upon signing a recording contract with Disques Campus, Martin made her solo recording debut on the label with the single "Tout Tourne et Tout Bouge" in 1971, followed by the full-length album La Première Nuit d'Amour in 1972. In total, Martin released four full-length albums on Disques Campus, one of them a collaboration with duet partner Jimmy Bond. In 1975, a year after winning an award at the Festival de la Rose d'Or d'Antibes in France with her interpretation of the song "Ce Serait Dommage," Martin made her label debut on Disques Martin with the single "Les Femmes Chantent." She reached new heights of success during the late '70s with the double-platinum albums Dix Ans de Ma Vie (1978) and Noël avec Nicole Martin (1979). In 1980, Martin founded the vanity label Disques Nicole Martin and proceeded to release the self-produced albums Laissez-Moi Chanter (1980), Une Affaire de Cœur (1982), and Histoires de Femmes (1986), big-budget efforts that earned her numerous Prix Félix nominations. In 1988, Martin founded another label, Les Disques Diva, and began producing albums by Michel Louvain, Fernand Gignac, and others. Most successful among her production work was the long-running Ce Soir on Danse! album series. Following a couple albums in the early '90s, Le Goût d'Aimer (1991) and Un Noël d'Amour (1993), Martin put her solo recording career to rest. Seventeen years passed before she released the comeback album Cocktail de Douceur (2010). ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
