"One Question Music"

“Danni Nicholls is a modern-day Country troubadour. The last few years has seen her relentlessly playing all over the UK and US, with the hard work finally paying off as she has managed to fan-fund her next album. She manages to hammer out the toe-tapping barnstorming numbers, but her softer song ‘Between The River and The Railway’ lays you down and makes everything in the world feel perfect.”

"Maverick Magazine"

“exceptional self-penned songs, all sung with heartfelt emotion and in a style not dissimilar to a young Rosanne Cash”
Mike Morisson - Maverick Music Magazine - Maverick Magazine

"Maverick Music Festival"

“As the Maverick stage closed, the Peacock cafe opened. It’s a bare bones, acoustic showcase and cutting the figurative ribbon was Brighton based Danni Nichols, who quickly packed the place out with her personal brand of heart-on-your-sleeve country. There’s a good variation of pace in her songs and her voice is lovely, deep and powerful. There’s nothing to hide behind in this kind of stripped down setting so you simply have to be good and she is. ”

"Cosmic American Music, Nottingham"

Danni recently released a 4 track EP called 'Time' produced by Iain Archer (Jake Bugg, Snow Patrol, Tired Pony)

Following a successful PledgeMusic campaign, in December 2012, Danni recorded her debut album in Nashville with Chris Donohue (Emmylou Harris, The Civil Wars, Robert Plant). This sumptuous and collection of 10 songs will take you on quite the emotional journey. The album features world class musicians such as Al Perkins (Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, Dolly Parton, the Rolling Stones) and Steve Fishell (Albert Lee, Kris Kristopherson, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt) and is due for release May 2013.

Danni has been writing and performing original songs since she inherited her uncle Heathcliff's 1962 Burns London Shortscale Jazz guitar (rumoured to have belonged to Billy Fury!) aged 16. As soon as she had figured out the chord of G she was off writing her own material.

Since then, with a few more chords under her belt, this "hard-working sweetheart of the rodeo" has been honing her craft, gigging and touring the UK (and USA) with her trusty Tanglewood parlour guitar wooing audiences and buolding a following with her emotionally charged Americana songs.
