ABOUT

I'm an ex-pat Australian, recorded & performed a lot of material including on major labels (Sony BMG) and have done a number of TV and movie scores. I move between London and Melbourne (Australia). In London (June 2018) I launched my 12th LP 'Deal With Your Disenchantment' a 21stC woman's and contemporary political update on '60s/ early '70s Dylan - all original material. As a 4 piece, my band gigged in London every 6 weeks, and even did a gig in Melbourne in Feb 2019.

From 2020, I'm doing a Phd at LaTrobe University in Melbourne, and starting to write a rock opera as part of that, subject matter based in London.

The music for this epic, political story will sweep through many styles, but a lot of it will be '80s/'90s synth pop/ electronic indie cross-over, which is where I started my musical journey all those years ago!

You can see some of the clips I've done in many styles of music over the years on my YouTube channel. www.youtube/nicoleskeltys

So, I do have a great bassist, guitarist to work with still in London, but looking for drummer and other guitarists/ instrumentalists/ singers to co-create some fun times for recording and performing over two continents (for starters:-)
