In all candor I went ahead and kind of stole from Nicole's bio to introduce her. Many of you probably are well acquainted with her amazing photography, if not with her personally. You can and should view her work on her site http://elawgrrl.com/
It probably doesn't surprise you that Nicole likes a lot of great bands, their albums and their shows, most of which we are fortunate enough to get to see through her eyes via her art.
Here are her favorite albums from 2013. Thanks Nicole!
