Description

Nicki Gillis is one of Australia’s most successful independent artistes. She has had numerous number 1’s around the world. Hosts a country music television show which is broadcast through Europe, she is the principle singer in Carole King’s Tapestry The Concert and she is the producer and main singer in Herstory – a history of women in rock.

In addition, Nicki is the GM for Vintage FM in Western Sydney and runs her own music school teaching vocals to aspiring singers.

She is the recipient of numerous awards across all different genres of music including the 2006 Blue Mountains Blues/Jazz Music Award, the 2007 Coopers Golden Saddle Award, the 2009 Frank Ifield International Spur Award and, in 2011, the Australian Entertainment Industry ‘Mo’ Award for Best Performer or Band.

Join us at The Dural Country Club as Nicki presents an evening of exceptional music in a double bill featuring a tribute to Carole King in the first half of the night and a 70's Girl show in the second half where she explores the songs that influenced her musical career.

Tapestry is the second album recorded by Carole King and is one of the best-selling albums of all time, with over 25 million copies sold worldwide; it received 4 Grammy Awards in 1972, including Album of the Year. Carole King wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the album, several of which had already been hits for other artists such as Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and The Shirelles' "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (in 1960).
Nicki performs this quintessential Carole King album LIVE in a sophisticated, “true to the original sound” format as well as some of the songs that King wrote for other artistes such as The Loco-Motion (Little Eva/Kylie Minogue), I’m Into Something Good (Herman’s Hermits/Marianne Faithful), Pleasant Valley Sunday (The Monkees) and You’ve Got A Friend (James Taylor).

After the break she returns with 70's Girl.

This half of the show is Nicki’s answer to that popular media question “ Who Are Your Influences?” which she gets asked on a regular basis. It is the story of a young girl with stars in eyes, growing up in Western Australia and features songs performed and made famous by: Linda Ronstadt, Cher, Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, Karen Carpenter, Suzi Quattro, Gloria Gaynor, Janis Ian, Roberta Flack , Mama Cass, Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin, Donna Summer, Joan Jett, Joni Mitchell and more.
