Her big vocals set her apart in the massive noise of the American music industry. Her stage presence slaps your soul. Her off-stage
personality is warm and welcoming. She has been called the real
deal by Global Press and has single-handedly led No/Hugs to the successful act that they are today. She is a powerhouse. She is an
activist. She leads one of the most influential and inspiring fan bases
online. She is Narcie.
NARCIE was invited to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston at the age of 16 after her audition, where she was recognized as an exemplary young talent. She graduated from Berklee Colleg Of Music in 2015 with honors and a full-round scholarship with a BA in voice performance, music business as well as conducting and drama. NARCIE studied alongside teachers such as Rebecca Perricone and Sharon Brown (Broadway) Armsted Christian (Blues) Didi Stewart (80's rockstar) and immersed herself in the art of blues and rock.
The singer formed No/Hugs in 2015 after her local performances at Berklee were picking up hype. She decided to dedicate herself to her solo project and decided to sign the band up at the Boston Battle of The Bands '15 in order to decipher whether that was the right call for her or not. She won Boston Battle of The Bands by a landslide and the rest is history.
No/Hugs headlined major American Festivals such as Salem's Halloween Festival both in 2016 and 2017, Boston's Japan Festival in 2016 but it wasn't till 2018 where she was discovered by Vans Warped Tour's CEO where No/Hugs made their forever mark in the pop/punk history as one of the last bands to ever play on the famous Vans Warped Tour alongside State Champs, Bowling For Soup, Tonight Alive, The Main and others.
While on the Vans Warped Tour they released their debut single Your Satisfaction Is Fake with LIONS LIONS producer and Trophy Wives legend Chris Piquette who signed his unique sound on the single.
In 2018 No/Hugs was nominated Best Artist Of The Year by the Boston Music Awards as well as Best Rock Band In State by the New England Music Awards in 2019.
No/Hugs has performed next to class acts such as Faster Pussycat, Toni Braxton, BIA, Slaine, and Lupe Fiasco.
In 2018 Narcie got noticed by microphone company AUDIX MICROPHONES USA who fell in love and wanted to support her massive talent. She secured an exclusive endorsement alongside names such as Willie Nelson and Allanis Morisette and she now endorses her signature microphone the AUDIX VX-5
2019 saw No/Hugs on the rise after being noticed by Greek Rock Legend Vasilis Papakonstantinou where they were invited to perform alongside him at EDON Music Festival in front of 80,000. That's where NARCIE caught the eye of famous producer Miltos Karatzas who introduced the young talent to lyricist Lina Nikolakopoulou. NARCIE's vision of tindering the alternative scene in Greece brought to life the re-endition of Stereotipa that currently owns over 100k streams.
No/Hugs has been on 5 national tours, a Canadian Tour as well as an international tour.
