Non-performing, background-belonging songwriter seeks singers to sparkle in the spotlight.
The songs exist in different mixes - slowies, high-tempo pop and acoustic - in an attempt to show that if the song-writing is strong enough a song will work across a range of presentations.
It is also important to me not to tie any one song to any one performer. I warm to the idea of each performer shaping a song to their own instincts and impulses.
Open to the idea of supplying backing-tracks or MIDI data for live performance. Also open to the idea of a singer recording their own vocals and uploading a track to the on-line stores - and then what you make from streaming and downloading, you keep.

Anybody Listening (Claustrophobic Mix)
Anybody Listening (Claustrophobic Mix) Genre: Pop
A 135bpm mix of Anybody Listening. This mix is synthesizer derived, and is more heavily layered than other mixes. A sparser Ventilated Mix exists, as does an Extended Mix and an Acoustic Mix. A Blended Mix combines acoustic guitar and synthesizer sounds. The Blended Mix is on the Nicky Sings digital EP, while the physical EP also features the Ventilated Mix. The Ventilated Mix and the Claustrophobic Mix are the tracks on the AL single release. Acoustic and Endurance mixes are at the time of writing unreleased.
Beautivity (135XBass Mix)
Beautivity (135XBass Mix) Genre: Electronic
The 135bpm mix of Beautivity. Two instrumental sections exist to give the song (and the singer!) time to breathe. These sections contain vocals in the slower Choral Mix
Beautivity (Choral Mix)
Beautivity (Choral Mix) Genre: Pop
The slower, exposed mix of Beautivity which showcases the singer's voice. Lyrics omitted in the 135XBass Mix are included here. Beautifully sung - the Angels do indeed applaud.
Cynicism (Pop Mix)
Cynicism (Pop Mix) Genre: Pop
A song that bemoans the fact that the people who are in charge are often useless. The Hyper-Extended Political Mix appears on the Nicky Sings EP. An unreleased Acoustic Mix also exists.
Darling (Sweetheart Mix)
Darling (Sweetheart Mix) Genre: Pop
A song that fondly recalls a romantic relationship and wishes it still existed. This song was supposed to be a little bit jazzy or bluesy or honky-tonk... But it isn't. I still feel it has merit though.
Heartbreak (Choral Mix)
Heartbreak (Choral Mix) Genre: Pop
The original presentation of Heartbreak - a 'slowie' with no percussion and minimal bass. An exposed arrangement showcases the vocalist's ability.
Heartbreak (135XBass Mix)
Heartbreak (135XBass Mix) Genre: Pop
Heartbreak was originally written as a 'slowie' to capture the mood of the message of the song. This 135bpm version energises things and adds new lyrics and melodies.
Kink (Chastity Mix)
Kink (Chastity Mix) Genre: Pop
The clue should be in the title - this is a song for grown-ups with content for grown-ups. Unapologetic, forthright, direct and uninhibited, this song takes Pop to a place it has never previously visited, and as the lyrics advise, 'open mind required'.
