With guitar in hand and keyboard in tow, Nicki Sutherland brings to the stage a fresh attitude and sound. Combining elements of folk, pop, and rock, her songs are pensive, direct, often about relationships, but not strictly romantic in nature. '... her voice runs from 'breathy brush', to 'in your face'.' Karen E. Reynolds - Writer's Block - Sound Advice '... replete in solid songwriting and percussive acoustic guitar with intricate, enticing melodies.' Thomas Schulte - What's on Disc - WomanRock.Com '... graced with a voice reminiscent of a young Wendy Bucklew and an unconfined passionate style uniquely her own... impassioned lyrics and ample vocal ability... cover a wide range of emotions and experiences, both intensely personal and intimately accessible. ' Laura Vess - Reaching Out '... dark folk with a rock edge... somber, slightly haunting, poignant images, images of an innocence lost. Josh Chasin - Gritz.net Nicki teamed up with bassist Raymond Blair and percussionist Dave Holland to record her first independently released solo album 'Precious Things'. In 2001 she teamed up with singer/songwriter Staci Bence to form the duo 'me & her', which allowed for well arranged harmonies to add a new dimension to the music. Together they released a live, 20 track CD incorporating new and previously released songs.
