About Nicola Milan

Sultry, smooth and a little bit sassy, Nicola Milan has a voice you will remember. Instantly likeable for its velvety, mellow timbre this talented Perth vocalist, songwriter and multi instrumentalist has a three and a half octave range and demonstrates amazing vocal control performing her eclectic mix of original Latin jazz, blues and folk fusion.

Her style is a cross between Norah Jones and Tracy Chapman; sultry Latin and soulful blues next to cheeky swing and all with her own quirky twist. Nicola’s compositions invite you into a web of emotive lyrical content and lingering melodies while her interpretations of well known jazz and blues classics are delivered with passion and creativity.

When Ms Milan released her debut single “Take Your Chances” in 2010, its seductive, alluring sound quickly gained attention with the song being featured in the feature length indie film “Kittens of Woodlake”. The song was then selected to showcase at the 2011 WAMi Festival Licensing Pitch Panel.

Nicola sang for the United Nations’ “UN Women” at a gala fundraising event held at The Ellington Jazz Club in August 2011 and has lent her vocals to performances for the Sugar Blue Burlesque Dance Troupe’s “Black Market Cabaret”. She has performed at venues in Perth including The Ellington Jazz Club, The Bakery and Jazz Fremantle to name a few.

Nicola is also known for her composition of the theme song for the popular web series “Flatmates” and writes for several web productions including MilsnDils.com. Nicola will be releasing her first music video for her song “Just A Kiss” as well as recording her EP later this year.

Nicola is also a skilled cartoonist and co-author of the hilarious “Monster in Law: A Survival Guide” currently being published by Vanguard Press, UK and due for release in early 2012.
