NICK & STEPH

View Biography

What better way to create a winning duo than to start with a good friendship….

Although these to phenomenal artist gel together like strawberries and cream…or should we say Guns ‘N’ Roses, they are both performers in their own right and have more talent, drive and diversity individually than most artists can hope for.

Steph brings a sexy yet rough ‘not to be reckoned with’ demeanour. Her deep and yet sometimes husky and occasionally folky voice adds to Nicks amazing control and mastery of his acoustic guitar. Nick’s range of vocal ability complements Steph on every note.

The versatility of their style coupled with their diverse song cover repertoire is what sets them apart and gives them a winning edge when it comes to corporate and private events as well as local pub and restaurant gigs.
