Nicky Swann is a singer/songwriter who has been a regular performer on the UK acoustic circuit since April 2007.
Nicky was born in South Devon in October 1972 and has been based in the area ever since.
Her contemporary acoustic roots sound draws on elements of folk, country and blues.
Her influences include Carole King, Patsy Cline, Damien Rice, Lucinda Williams and Etta James.
After splitting in 2006 with her long term covers duo guitarist Nicky searched for a replacement,
only to be disappointed by those she auditioned.
So determined to continue was she, she decided to take the role of guitarist herself and quickly expanded her three chord repertoire and was gigging again after six months.

She has achieved a growing, well respected reputation in such a short space of time,
singing from the heart and captivating audiences with her emotionally honest delivery.
