Sassey – The Sassey Project

Born Nicole Elizabeth Adams, Sassey was raised in Greenwood, MS and later moved to Portland at the age of nine. “I first realized I could sing at around eight, but I didn’t want to make a career out of it until I was sixteen” notes Sassey. Growing up in a family that consisted of five brothers, and one sister, Sassey definitely knows the meaning of struggle. “I’ve never had anything, just like any other kid in the ‘hood'” said Sassey. A large portion of Sassey’s motivation comes from the relationship with her mother. “My mother has been through hell and back and as I mature I can appreciate her struggle.”

Determined to showcase her talent at any cost Sassey recalls always trying to be the center of attention. “I can remember coming home from church and practicing gospel group Commission’s songs and dance moves in the mirror. I would go back to church the following Sunday and show everybody (congregation and family) what I had learned.”Intrigued by fame, popularity and a genuine love of all types of music, Sassey encompasses a maturity that most people don’t find until their twenties. Although Sassey has a somewhat different goal than most teenagers she has not lost touch with the value of friends and just plain old fun. “Friends come and go, my real friends understand what I’m trying to do and realize that I’m working hard to progress and take my career to another level.”

 The fact that Sassey has grown up as a local artist has allowed her to stay grounded and not to fall into the trap of developing a big head. “A big head equals negativity. Just as easy as God blessed me with this gift he has the ability to take it away” notes Sassey. Sassey has worked with many local artists such as G.O.T.M., J-Mack, Jus Q, and Kan’t Be Caught just to name a few. Sassey’s work with local artists and her undying determination have opened the doors to notoriety by some of the industry’s top performers. Sassey has opened for the Magic Show in Las Vegas featuring such artists as Peter Gunz & Lord Tariq, Shaq, Mystikal, and Ja Rule. In 1998, Sassey sang the national anthem during the playoff series between the Portland Trailblazers and the Seattle Supersonics. Due to an overwhelming response, Sassey was asked to come back and do a repeat performance during the Portland Trailblazers versus the Philadelphia 76ers game in 1999. In addition, Sassey has had the chance to open for Portland Hip-Hop All Stars, IMX, E-40, Ghostface Killah, Donell Jones, and Nelly.

Sassey offers the following advice to aspiring young artists. “Be patient, it doesn’t happen overnight. Just because you can sing doesn’t mean you’re going to make it. Trying to get the right attention is the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do.”
