Nick and Nicci (The Nickeys) 

Lismore, NSW, Australia

Indie band.

Not super grimey, not heavy rock, not entirely alternative. Just a little bit.

The Nickeys is a Lismore-based musical duo - sometimes we play as a band. Nick and myself (Nicci) formed our duo after meeting in February, 2021, and jamming at local music nights. Since then, we have been writing indie music together, busking the streets of Lismore and Byron Bay, and playing live at various venues. A few highlights include, making it into the Coffs Coast Uncovered Northern NSW music competition finals, playing at Lismore City Hall for the citizenship ceremony on Australia Day, and playing the Toyota Tailgate sessions at Tamworth Country Music Festival. 

Nick and I are both singer/song writers, Nick plays keys and produces our tracks, and I play acoustic/electric guitar. Music is way for us both to process our emotions and experiences, and we enjoy a sense of dark humour, working with metaphors (and sarcasm) to dance with and around our messages.

I (Nicci) began sharing my music live in 2021, whereas Nick has been at it for 20+ years, having played in Lismore-based bands including El Gonzo Green and jazz trios. I’m a visual artist, so when it comes to music, I work solely by feel and intuition. 


Some of our musical inspirations include Josh Pyke, Daniel Johnston, Tom York, Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Nirvana, Tori Amos, Courtney Barnett and Phoebe Bridgers to name a few. We’re a different kind of grunge - not grimey, not super-heavy rock, and not entirely alternative – just a little. 

We hope you enjoy our music.
