We are excited to introduce Nicky Steele to more Australian audiences as this lady from across the pond (NZ) has one of the best voices in the business. Originally trained as a opera singer Nicky made the move into Jazz when one of her school teachers spotted her on Channel 9. Since that time Nicky has travelled the world but for many reasons has not had the oppurtunity to perform as much as she would like to in Australia. We bring you this chance to hear one fabulous voice and believe it this Lady is no Tramp . You can read more about Nicky under Artistes on this website Her own show is entitled Ladies First and is a tribute to many of the Female Jazz artistes of our lifetime including Dianna Krall, Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Bassey and many many more
