“I absolutely love the elegance and beauty of her music” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
We’re really excited to announce that we’ll be hosting one of the UK’s top singer-songwriters, the amazing Danni Nicholls who has been wowing audiences and critics alike on both sides of the Atlantic. And what’s more it’s one of our very special “intimate” shows in the Square Tower, where we put the small stage side-on and curve the seating around to make an evening where songwriter and audience can really connect. If you’ve ever been to any of these nights then you’ll know how special they are!
“Her passion for her craft is unparalleled. Her depth of emotion, commitment to the song
and ability to go deep, makes her a rare artist.” Jed Hilly – Executive Director of the Americana Music Association
With the wind in her sails from receiving consecutive Americana Music Association UK award nominations (2017 ‘UK Album of the Year’ for Mockingbird Lane and 2018 ‘UK Artist of the Year’), singer-songwriter Danni Nicholls has been enjoying an incredible ride. From supporting the legendary Shakin’ Stevens on his 28 date major UK tour to opening for the mighty Lucinda Williams and The Secret Sisters plus being invited to perform at prestigious events such as Folk Alliance International, Cambridge Folk Festival, Tonder Festival, Denmark and AmericanaFest in Nashville….2019 is set to be just as exciting.
Following her first two critically acclaimed studio albums, A Little Redemption (2013) and Mockingbird Lane (2015), this year sees the release of her third – The Melted Morning – produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin (The Indigo Girls, Lucy Wainwright-Roche) at the idyllic woodland studio MOXE, Nashville TN.
“An artist with the elegance and imagination to restore your faith in the visceral power of an original song” Paul Sexton, BBC Radio 2 and freelance print/broadcast journalist
Closely personal yet widely relatable, the themes of this album span an array of life’s takeaways from the pain and darkness of rejection, the fear of losing yourself and the power of human connection to offering up hope and new perspectives in the face of adversities.
“I needed a new challenge, a new landscape to work in sonically, physically and viscerally. Collaborating with Jordan and this incredible team of musicians gave me that opportunity and I have come away with a delicate, vibey, honest and vulnerable collection of songs that we dove deep into to find out who they wanted to become”.
“Danni is one of our favourites. She’s a dedicated, prolific creator, combining memorable melodies with thoughtful lyrics. Danni’s performances are captivating; her natural warmth making any stage her own.” David Pick, Founder & CEO Vintage TV
Her vibrant, spell binding performances are guaranteed to melt your heart into the soles of your boots. Danni’s passionate delivery, captivating velvet voice and charmingly engaging between-song banter compel you to fall under her spell.
