TRIPHOP INFUSED JAZZ-POP DRAPED WITH SILKY VOCALS, WRAPPED IN SECRETS

Triphop infused jazz-pop artist Nicola Milan mixes jazz with modern grooves and electronic elements, wrapped in silky vocals.

Sounding like Lamb crossed with Caro Emerald with the energy of The Cat Empire, Miss Milan transports you back to a time back to a time when cabarets were smoky, dangerous and filled with underworld mobsters, dirty martinis, and deadly women.

With songs about lust, love and temptation, Nicola’s music takes influence from notorious characters throughout history, movies from the Golden Era and parties straight from the Roaring Twenties.

In 2013 Nicola released her sensual and mood creating album ‘Forbidden Moments’ which boasts an incredible line up of musicians and received rave reviews from the music industry, media and fans.

Her bossanova ‘Love Me More’ was chosen over thousands of entries to become a finalist in the coveted John Lennon International Songwriting Contest in 2013 and her cheeky swing number ‘No Room For Promises’ also won a finalist spot in the UK International Songwriting Contest and also in the Australian Songwriting Contest.

“Witty, sophisticated and original, it is exciting to see such an intelligent and honest artist and songwriter surface in Australia.” – Limelight Magazine (Australia’s premier Arts and Classical and Jazz Music Publication)

Nicola has her songs placed in feature length films, written music for a popular web series, released her debut EP ‘Little Rendezvous’ in November 2011 which went straight to #1 on the jazz charts in Honolulu and Wisconsin in the USA, and she has toured Australia nationally.

 “Milan sings through the rest of the world with her confident alto voice, well-balanced, inside and out. She shows that she can readily compose and sing in any genre or subgenre she chooses whether the gypsy-tinged tango of “The Scent of Her Perfume” or the American stage ballad “I Begin To Understand.” –allaboutjazz.com (USA)

Signed to ORiGiN Music Publishing Australia, Nicola is also an illustrator of quirky, Gothic/Steampunk art and shares cover music videos and vlogs on her YouTube Channel.
