With an enthralling entwinement of indie pop and folk, Nancie Schipper’s distinct pure voice of rich and warm timbres has been compared to the likes of HAIM and Vera Blue. It appears that age is no barrier to the 17 year old, who has spent the last five years tirelessly working her way around the local scene, playing venues from the age of 12.
Momentum has been building for Schipper this year, following shows as part of the 2017 Port Fairy Folk Festival line up, as well as receiving triple j airplay for her latest singles ‘Corner Store’ and ‘Your Eyes’. She received stellar reviews from triple j presenters, dubbing her sound as ‘irresistibly catchy pop music’, and was selected as an Unearthed feature artist. Winning the Unearthed competition ‘Live at the Steps’ saw her open for the likes of Tired Lion, Ruby Fields and Jack River to a crowd of thousands.
Schipper’s forthcoming album ‘Sleeptalking’ (produced by ARIA award winner Matt Fell) will be released December 10th.
“From the writing to the production and performance, this exudes nothing but confidence. More songs like this, you'll have a career before you know it.” - Richard Kingsmill, triple j
