Abby Nicole Uecker, born and raised in Norfolk Nebraska, has loved every minute of performing on stage since the young age of 4. She was the one to catch everyone's attention with her genuine smile and quirky facial expressions. Her passion for music through dance inspired her to reach out to a local voice coach who encouraged and supported her love for singing. This led to roles in musical theatre and her decision to pursue a Theatre Performance degree at the University OfNebraska Lincoln. While in college, Abby was asked to join a local country band called County Road as the lead vocalist.She also had the exciting opportunity to write songs with co-writers in Nashville -under the guidance of a dear friend, and one of her co-writers, Megan Conner. As her busy life that she loved was propelling forward, it took a sudden unexpected turn. Abby started experiencing severe headaches and after seeing a specialist at UNMC, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in December2014 and needed immediate surgery. Knowing this tumor presented in the left side of the brain that controls speech and memory, put her future for singing and performing at risk from becoming a reality. By God's loving grace, a surgeon's steady hand, and many prayers, the surgery went well! With determination and hard work, Abby returned to school in February 2015 and starting singing with her band in April 2015. She resumed her love for singing and songwriting with a new view on life. Abby knows firsthand that things can change in an instant and she learned to love every moment life has to offer by not taking for granted each day as it passes.Abby hopes to share her positive energy and love for life through her music. After graduation, she had the opportunity to go to Nashville and record her first E.P and on June 30th (her 24th Birthday) her first single entitled "Cool"was released! Abby co-wrote "Cool" with Jesse Lee (who is known for her current #1 co-written hit "Peter Pan") and it can be found on iTunes and many other online outlets. Currently it has nearly 18,000 listens on Spotify. Abby will be releasing 4 more singles over the next year and plans to record several more songs soon. She looks forward to fulfilling a career in performing as her 2016 summer was packed with shows throughout Nebraska, including the Madison County Fair where she opened for country music artist Kip Moore and in the Railyard in Lincoln, NE where she opened for Clare Dunn. This fall she opened for Russell Dickerson at The Bourbon Theatre in Downtown Lincoln. She has many other opportunities in the works for opening acts and looks forward to showcase her talent with every opportunity she gets.
