Nicha’s heart lies in Belfast but already her music has taken her around the world. When she finished school at 18, she packed up her guitar and headed to Australia where she busked around the cities of Sydney and Melbourne and taught kids how to sail on the side. From playing in any open mic night she could find she secured a few residencies in Melbourne and a slot at the renowned St Kilda Twilight Market. Nicha stopped in Nepal on the way home playing a few tunes in Kathmandu and ended up living there for a month and a half. “My time travelling around Australia and Nepal taught me so much about people, cultures, independence and myself. It gave me a lot of inspiration and insight into other people’s lifestyles and ways of thinking, giving me a lot to write about.”–Nicha.
