Bio - Longer version
Nickie Hart is a singer/songwriter/composer based on the outskirts of London. Her piano based music is considered both romantic and melodic and her voice has been described as unique, haunting and ethereal. Her influences, primarily classical music and french popular songs were her musical preferences during her formative years. The romantic element of this is evident in much of her music. If you like Enya, Katie Melua and Kate Bush.then Nickie's music may well appeal as there are indeed similarities. Nickie came to songwriting relatively late, after many years of working in the clothing and fashion industry.. Like many, she grew up learning the piano only to renounce it at the age of 12 in favour of the clarinet. After a gap of 18 years she was drawn back to the piano this time with her focus primarily on composition. A few years later she met David Burman a renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist at a local tennis club from whom she decided to take songwriting and composition lessons which inspired her to develop a career in songwriting. This resulted in the production of her debut album in 2009 entitled 'Will & Destiny' with titles such as 'Feeling Fine', Never Give Up' and Be Yourself. The aim of the album was to inspire and deal with subject matter that all could relate to. This was followed shortly afterwards by an album of relaxing piano music produced for a brain entrainment company, entitled 'Eternal Love'. Her focus is now more on the composition of solo piano music which some have likened to that of Ludivico Einaudi. She is currently in the process of completing another album of relaxing solo piano music the aim of which is to induce a sense of calm and well-being in the listener. It is scheduled for release in September.
