By Peter Coulston

"Nicola K is a soulful songstress who blends her Greek Cypriot roots with rock, funky soul and Hip-Hop. Nicola formed her highly competent and professional band while attending Southampton University, and they all now work with producer Benjamin K to deliver the diverse sounds that can be heard on this fine EP. Nicola has also worked with Greek Cypriot Hip-Hop band DNA, and their influence is also apparent here.

Nicola and Benjamin K are the writers on this EP, and they have succeeded in utilising a variety of influences to excellent effect. Not only are the songs well structured musically, they can also boast a strong lyric content that is well worth getting into. The entire CD was produced and mixed by Benjamin K, for which he deserves due credit. The title track opens the album with strong keyboards and easy transfer between Hip-Hop and rock. “This is Me and You” is soulful and softer with an effective mix of guitar and vocal harmonies. The Cypriot influences blend easily with the Hip-hop beats on “Lost in Translation” while “Obsession” does everything it says in the title. Calvin Klein, please take note.

Everyone has a favourite track on a CD, and “Don’t Lecture Me” is mine. I love the keyboards and the way it rocks on the hook. “Destiny” features Andreas of DNA adding Cypriot rap to all the other good stuff. In addition to all this good music and production, let us not lose track of the fact that Nicola K is a brilliant singer. Her voice is strong and passionate, and adds the icing to the cake on this fine EP. If you would like to hear Nicola K for yourself, visit www.swagbag.biz where all will be revealed. I understand that Swagbag Records have other artists in the pipeline who I shall be listening to soon I hope. Watch this space. " - Seatwave Reviews

"Nicola Koussertari (aka Nicola K) studied and was active in music through childhood and her teens. Now, at the age of 22 she runs her own label and is a successeful international singer/songwriter."

"I perform under the name Nicola K, and perform live with my band of awesome muso's! We have been gigging intensively, and last year put out my debut EP on our own label. Since then we have begun to write a new album, as well as gigging even more, including New years eve in cyprus, to 4000 people!" - The Independent, UK


"Nicola K is a hugely exciting emerging singer and singwriter in Europe. Having released her debut EP "Who Am I" she has been gigging all over the UK and Europe.

Her voice is powerful, yet soulful, and can captivate an audience. Her Music is original - rock mixed with pop and hiphop and her Greek routes, a very refreshing sound!" - TVStar - Greece and Cyprus


Nicola has followed her early instincts and is now a rock chick. Yes, with just a bassist, drummer, keys & Telecaster super hero, she gave us one brilliant set - and rocked my world. Her vocals are spirited and powerful and she has the moves and the stage craft to carry it off. Rock 'n roll, Nicola.

Peter Coulston 2008 - Seatwave Blogs


On the surface of it, Nicola K is simply a very good female rock/pop star. But into the mix go so many fascinating influences that here is a talent who may well grace even grander pages than these in times to come.

"From Asian refrains to a Madonna in the 80s type vocal. It's big, in your face and razzlingly rocky in effect."

Bio

Melodee Rockmore is not your ordinary singer-songwriter, nor is she a ‘wannabe-popstar,’ she is a performer with a passion. Born in the UK to a Cypriot family, Melodee was brought up in a quiet town in Hampshire where the closest thing to the Mediterranean is Costa Coffee.

Using her songwriting and singing as an outlet for her frustrations and emotions, she has shown the drive and ability to achieve much than serving cod’n’chips by already gaining airplay and press in the UK, USA, Italy, Greece, Russia and Cyprus.

Combining her cultural routes with her love of rock and pop, Melodee has evolved her own style, described by many as a ‘breath of fresh air.’ With powerful, melodic vocals combined with rocking guitars, funky bass lines and hard-hitting drums, the music is funk-rock with a beautiful twist.

She delivers a energetic live show with her own dedicated band, and together they have already played gigs and festivals all over the UK and Europe – including shows at The Half Moon and Dublin Castle in London, and recently headlining a festival to 4000 people in her native Cyprus.

Her new lead track, the heart-felt and powerful “Come Back” - written about the loss of her Grandfather – is a question and answer between them in an imaginary dialogue, whilst her song “Writing On The Wall” was prompted by a war memorial at the recent remembrance days service.

Melodee’s vocals have gone beyond the reach of rock, however. She has collaborated and performed with hip-hop producers and artists such as Scratch from the Roots, Don ES from New York, and DNA from Cyprus. She has also performed for country, dance, pop and drum and bass producers.
