Lucinda Williams. John Prine. Bob Dylan. Allison Krauss. Willie Nelson. Johnny Cash. Bonnie Raitt. Emmylou Harris. Patty Griffin. This is a short list of the musicians ANNIE KEATING has been compared to over the last twenty years. Keating writes and sings like a woman who knows deep down that heartache is the price of hope, and she can make us believe — in that way that only the best artists can — that all of it is worth the cost.
Talent spotted by BBC Radio’s Bob Harris, she has performed at leading festivals – Take Root (Netherlands), Glasgow Americana Festival, Maverick (UK), Buscadero (Italy) NXNE and The Brooklyn Americana Fest. Sharing the bill with the likes of John Hiatt and Bon Iver, Keating has toured internationally in a dozen countries. Bristol County Tides, her eighth full length album- an epic pandemic story of awakening and inspiration – shows this veteran artist at the peak of her powers.
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’), plus touring with legends such as Shakin’ Stevens and Lucinda Williams, singer-songwriter DANNI NICHOLLS has been enjoying an incredible ride.
Whether touring new songs and stories as a trio or solo, 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.
