Show Details

"I have loved Michelle Nicolle's singing perpetually, and without ceasing since first, I heard her. Michelle is a singer born to charm, enlighten and seduce through music. I only wish she lived in the States somewhere so I could manage to hear her more often." - Kurt Elling

Michelle Nicolle is one of Australia's most celebrated jazz performers, winning the Bell, Mo and National Jazz Awards. Michelle is also a 3-time ARIA nominee.

Recipients of the 2017 Bell Australian Jazz Award for Vocal Album of the Year The Michelle Nicolle Quartet are one of the most prolific and inventive jazz ensembles in the country - 2019 marks their 21st birthday!
