Nicola started singing and playing double bass in her twenties which has led to a jazz career spanning 25 years (so far!).

She has played and recorded with such Jazz luminaries as Dave Newton, Digby Fairweather, Jim Mullen, Bruce Adams and Alan Barnes and alongside class jazz acts as diverse as Eliane Elias, Courtney Pine, Georgie Fame,Tony Kofi, Michael Garrick Jazz Britannia Orchestra, Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine, Humphrey Lyttleton and Acker Bilke.

On stage Nicola is a class act with a passionate and swinging style, outstanding personality and a charismatic stage presence to match – she has an uncanny ability to adapt her performance to captivate and embrace any audience.

Quote ……. “She’s a remarkable performer on stage, a fine singer and an outstandingly swinging and propulsive bass player with an outgoing personality to match…I declare that she is a class act who should be on every jazz festival in the land….A sure fire hit!” Humphrey Lyttleton
