Dubbed a “soul songstress” by Phillyburbs.com, Nicky Egan is an accomplished songwriter and keyboardist who commands the stage with captivating energy.

Originally from Philadelphia, Egan  grew up in a home where the sounds of Richie Havens, Bob Marley, Bonnie Raitt, and The Rolling Stones were frequently buzzing on the stereo. Upon receiving a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music, Egan moved to Boston in 2006. She graduated with a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production, worked with various visiting producers, showcasing many original pieces of work, and directed the Entrepreneur Action Team while attending the school.

Egan spent two years touring with funk band, Turkuaz post college and released her first album, Good People, in 2011 when she moved to Brooklyn, NY. Radio Boston described the LP as having “a voice that sounds more soulful and world weary than her 23 years might suggest.”

With the release of her debut album, and a bittersweet departure from Turkuaz to focus on her band, Egan’s career has begun a steady rise. She’s shared the stage with other soul acts like Boston’s Eli “Paperboy” Reed, and New Orleans’ Charles Neville, continuously leaving audiences in awe.

Enveloped in New York’s exploding music scene, Egan performs frequently around the boroughs. She completed her sophomore release, an EP entitled, ‘The 45 Homestead Project’, which was released April 1 2014 through Ropeadope Records. It’s been received graciously, with the EP debuting on both iTunes and Bandcamp’s homepages under the ‘new and noteworthy’ sections.

Nicky currently resides in Brooklyn, where she’s working on a number of musical projects.
