"I’ve taken some time off to write and record songs to develop my sound. "Wait" was written over a year ago. We wrote this track in a day but it went through a bit to get to the sound I was looking for. When I was over in the States I met a producer. We really got along and I felt he understood the artist in me. He then finished off "Wait" and I’m so happy with the outcome. I’m excited to show everyone this track after the journey it’s been through :-) " - NICOLE MILLAR
22 years old and hailing from Sydney, Nicole has spent time alongside some of the brightest names in Australian dance music. Many will know Nicole as the alluring voice and co-writer of Peking Duk’s enduring anthem ‘High’ - #1 triple platinum single, #2 in triple j Hottest 100, a special moment up on the ARIA stage with the boys to collect a gong for ‘Best Dance Release’, as well as travelling the country playing shows to hundreds and thousands of fans.
Nicole has also lent her voice to collaborations with the likes of: Cosmo’s Midnight ‘Phantasm’; Golden Features ‘Tell Me’ and graced stages as guest touring vocalist with both Rüfüs and the Kite String Tangle throughout 2014, taking in shows which included triple j’s ‘One Night Stand’ and the Groovin The Moo tour.
Now taking the bold step to move to the front of the stage, Nicole recently spent time in Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sydney writing and recording ‘Wait’ and her forthcoming debut EP. Featuring her subtle yet hypnotic lyrical style laid over smoky, driving beats and an imploring tale of giving in to the moment, ‘Wait’ makes for an enchanting debut. ‘Wait’ was produced by Dan Farber, hailing from Tel Aviv now LA based and known for his solo work, plus work with Borgore, and remixes for both Mad Decent and Dim Mak Records artists.
Nicole is one of the Artists To Watch on the bill for this year’s EMCPlay, taking place across various venues in Sydney’s CBD on December 2nd as part of the Electronic Music Conference. EMCPlay will see her first live solo show since appearing on the Red Bull Music Academy Stage at last year’s Splendour in The Grass, and will be the first with her new 3 piece band.
