Nickie Minshall releases her atmospheric debut Watch Your Step that builds up from an organ backdrop to rolling drums. The song is comforting with uplifting tones. And there is a soft strength to Minshall’s vocals as she sings about needing a change.
Bout time I set fire to this forest where I live
Thought with time would come a change but I guess it never did
Caught in a web that always ends where it begins
It’s not a circle but a mess, it’s always more and never less
After half a decade with indie-rock band UKAE, Nickie is cultivating her solo sound. Her debut feels like the start of a new journey for the young artist and a safe haven for us listeners.
Nickie Minshall plans to release 2 more singles this summer and hopefully her debut solo show in her home-city of Toronto this Autumn. A lyric video for Watch Your Step will be released soon.
