Confessions wrapped in an indie-folk-pop style...
“There is something mythical that borders on ethereal in the music that Nicky Phillips creates which places her amongst the highest calibre of indie talent.” - Only a Northern One
Born and bred in London, Nicky Phillips felt the pull to move north, writing and sharing her open-hearted songs through intimate performances across North West England. Nicky has spent many years performing live, but 2020 had other plans. As a result, Nicky started sharing her music on Instagram and soon after connected with producer Joel Schwartz to begin her recording career.
Nicky released her self-titled EP with a sold out release show in August 2021, featuring her debut single ‘Echo’ which was released in early 2021. The EP is about the ups & downs of holding on to and letting go of love and the songs featured on the EP have been steadily gaining success. ‘Home’ was a semi-finalist in the 2021 UK Songwriting Competition and has been featured on Indie Folk Central’s first ‘Women of Indie Folk’ compilation and ‘The Dark’ was recently featured on BBC Music Introducing.
Nicky has performed at prestigious venues in London, such as The Bedford, the Southbank Centre and The Troubadour. In the North, Nicky has performed at Matt & Phred’s, The Whiskey Jar (Manchester) and Knutsford Music Festival (Cheshire) to name a few. Along with performing around the UK, she has also had the opportunity to perform in the Czech Republic and Austin, Texas. Nicky performed on Instagram Live on Friday nights throughout Covid restrictions, but can now be found performing in Manchester, Cheshire and further afield.
