Hailing from Bedfordshire, growing up on the American roots music of her Anglo-Indian grandmother’s record collection, singer/songwriter DANNI NICHOLLS has been paving her way in UK Americana for over a decade, building a loyal fan base and much critical praise.
With three acclaimed studio albums, produced by and featuring some of Nashville’s finest under her belt and the wind still in her sails from three consecutive Americana Music Association UK award nominations plus extensive tours and opening slots with the likes of The Secret Sisters, Shakin’ Stevens and Lucinda Williams, Danni, her powerful, arresting voice and her dynamically poetic songs are ever-gaining presence and reach.
