About This Act :
Arranger, band leader and award-winning jazz vocalist Michelle Nicolle started her musical career when she began studying the violin at the age of eight in the famous wine region, Barossa Valley, South Australia in the 1970s. Now based in Melbourne, she is rapidly becoming known as Australia’s finest jazz singer. As a country girl Michelle grew up listening to popular music and old movie tunes, playing in the Barossa Valley Schools Orchestra, and teaching herself to play the Angaston Town Hall’s grand piano – whilst her father worked, polishing the dance floor. Throughout High School, music continued to dominate Nicolle’s life. She moved up the ranks of the Orchestra, kept ‘nutting out’ pop tunes on the piano (by Prince and Duran Duran!!), blew 3rd cornet in a local marching band and sang in every choir on offer. In 1985 Michelle was accepted into the Adelaide University’s Bachelor of Education Secondary Music course – playing the violin. Surprisingly, Michelle says she didn’t develop an interest in jazz until 1986 when she started singing with the university Adelaide Connection Jazz Choir. Hearing for the first time about Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Chet Baker, Michelle soon immersed herself in their music- deciding that this was the music that her heart wanted to follow. In 1987 she swapped her major to “Jazz Voice”.
