Traces Of You
Traces Of YouThis song is about missing someone, and how their memory lives on in us. The photo is of my Granny, who lives on in me and many others.
Afterglow Ed Sheeran Cover
Afterglow Ed Sheeran CoverI don't know about you, but I got so excited when I saw that Ed Sheeran had released a new track. This one hasn't disappointed. Hope you enjoy my cover.
December DreamsIn this song I've tried to capture the feeling I get when I think back on certain winters during my childhood. It's nostalgia and grieving for times gone by. It's also reminiscing and getting lost in happy memories, like being enfolded in a familiar blanket.
Exile - Taylor Swift & Bon Iver Cover
Exile - Taylor Swift & Bon Iver CoverHands up who else loves Taylor's new album? It's all the feels! I just had to cover this song which may just be my favourite from "Folklore".
Lying DownNew original. Please spread the love :-)
Beautiful Stranger - Halsey Cover
Beautiful Stranger - Halsey CoverI LOVE Halsey and this is such a beautiful song. Hope you enjoy my rendition 😀
Be SomebodyAnother raw song. I think we all feel like this at some time or another. Enjoy :-)
Shine Your Light
Shine Your LightWhen the mood takes me to write a new song, and when that happens late at night.... I am no longer capable of making the adult and responsible choice of going to bed at a decent time :-P. This was finished in the wee hours of the morning. It's far from perfect but I wanted to capture the feeling this song gives me. <3
FriendThis song is a dedication to one of my closest friends. More people should sing about friendships because when you have the right ones, you couldn't imagine life without them.
Christmases We Never Had
Christmases We Never HadI wrote this song for anyone who has ever missed somebody at Christmas.
All I Want For Christmas Is You - Cover
All I Want For Christmas Is You - CoverI've been feeling festive already for weeks now already and I've been aching to do some Christmas tunes. Think I can just about get away with now :-P. Here's my version of the classic from Mariah Carey.
Heed The Call Of The Sea
Heed The Call Of The SeaSo this is something completely different. I was imagining it as a sort of backing track for something, or background music for creative work, or whatever it inspires... It's completely different and strange. But I hope you like it anyway :-P
Slow DownNew original song. Written today and recorded today because it's fresh in my mind and soul. If you like it, please share with someone else who might as well.
TelephoneThis is a little number I wrote on my new piano last week. It's for all those people I love.... always only a call away <3

Don't Give Up Now
Don't Give Up NowI must say, I really, really like this song, and that's not because I wrote it but because of the sentiment behind it. The whole thing came to me this morning so strongly that I had to get it all down and produce it before that feeling went. It's one of those songs that I've sort of written for myself but for others, too. It's the idea that we should never, ever give up on our dreams. Even when we're extremely discouraged. ESPECIALLY when we're extremely discouraged. Also, I had an audience whilst recording this. A blackbird came to sit about a metre away through my window. Since he is one of nature's greatest musicians, I take it as a compliment.
Feel Like Home
Feel Like HomeDisclaimer/warning/hold on to your hats: this is really, really, different. It's not typical Nicola-esque. But then, I'm not typical ;-). Some rainy day experimentation. Enjoy!
Wasteland -*New Original*
Wasteland -*New Original*A bit darker than my average folky toe-tapping melodies or soothing lullabies. But I like the way it sounds :-) Hope you enjoy it too!
My Mistake - Gabrielle Aplin Cover
My Mistake - Gabrielle Aplin CoverGabrielle Aplin has been one of my greatest inspirations from the get-go. I feel privileged to have seen her perform live last year, and I wait in anticipation for every song she releases. Here is my cover of her wonderful song entitled, 'My Mistake.' Enjoy!
Just Can't Help It
Just Can't Help ItAttention people! New original song. Please have a listen.
PhoenixThe fourth song from my E.P 'Lighthouse'. Written for someone very dear to me.
LighthouseAbout to drop my new EP, 'Lighthouse', and thought I would treat you to the song that started it all. With thanks to my talented friend Dan Taplin, who slaved away for hours to mix and produce and add his own musical genius. Lighthouse is available now to pre-order. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com for more information.
Shallow Cover (From 'A Star is Born' with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper)
Shallow Cover (From 'A Star is Born' with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper)Absolutely adored this song from the film, even if I didn't love the ending of aforesaid film (spoiler alert). Here's my rendition of 'Shallow'.

Touch The Sky - Julie Fowlis
Touch The Sky - Julie FowlisHands up who loves Disney? Me! Hands up who loves 'Brave'? Me! Hands up who loves Julie Fowlis? Me! Hands up who's Scottish?... So I sort of had to cover this song. It was destiny.
It's Easy To Love You

Dance In The Rain - Mixed
Dance In The Rain - MixedSometimes on a Saturday night, while many people are painting the town red, I like to sit in front of my Surface Pro and play around with Audacity. Tonight I attempted to turn my latest original song into something a little special. Complete with synthesised 'bottle' sound effect. Go on, have a listen and like/share if you feel inspired.
Love Letter To My Dad
Love Letter To My DadThis is a love song to my dad, who passed away twelve years ago but has still left a massive hole in my heart. I wanted to write a song to remember not just his passing, but how he was as a person; someone who positively affected the world around him with his kindness and compassion. He's happy where he is now, but he also lives on in the hearts of those who love him.
Autumn RainfallBecause not all songs need words. I like to do a bit of improv on my keyboard (or preferably on a piano) from time to time. Recorded this whilst literally listening to the rain fall outside.
Waking Up Slow
Waking Up SlowGabrielle Aplin is one of those singers that inspires me. She has such a beautiful voice and a very special ability to write songs with lyrics that really mean something. I totally love her new song, 'Waking Up Slow'. Hope you enjoy my cover of it! :-)
Wild World Cover
Wild World CoverThis song is pretty awesome. Hope you like my cover of it :-)
Running With The Wolves
Running With The Wolves"Running With The Wolves" - Original They tried to make her believe her worth was only skin deep But the beauty within is what she chose to believe in She hears a million voices, they tell her she's not good enough But she rises above them, 'cos she already knows her worth They say she's running with the wolves She's on fire, she's on fire Ain't nothing bringing her down She's on fire, she's on fire She is learning to say no instead of always trying to please And the thought they might not like her doesn't bring her to her knees She's come through many trials and she wears her scars with pride Beautiful vulnerability she knows she needn't hide They say she's running with the wolves She's on fire, she's on fire Ain't nothing bringing her down She's on fire, she's on fire She doesn't care if others see she has moments, even days when it's hard to breathe And her life is full of responsibilities but she focuses her energy on possibilities No point looking at the mud when the sky is full of stars, it's only in our mind we create those prison bars She knows that she's not perfect but accepts what she can't change She learns from her mistakes and sees beauty in the pain
Let It Be
Let It BeA wee spontaneous recording of my cover of this amazing classic from The Beatles. Complete with Friday-night mixing-madness. Enjoy!
TonightPretty psyched about this track. It's a new original. Have a listen, and please do show your support by liking and sharing. Thank you!

Grateful - Original
Grateful - OriginalThe end of the year is slowly encroaching upon us. For this reason, and probably because I'll soon be celebrating another year of being alive (yikes!), I wrote this song of reflection, gratitude and hope.
