Danni Nicholls announces Spring UK tour

April sees the release of Danni Nicholls’ third studio album ‘The Melted Morning’ and she’s just announced a string of dates to support it, kicking off in Luton on March 16th. The new album was produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin in the woodland studio MOXE in Nashville, and is described as “a collection of closely personal yet widely relatable songs; some self-penned and some co-written with notable songwriters including Ben Glover, Robby Hecht and Jess Morgan.”

According to Nicholls: “I needed a new challenge, a new landscape to work in sonically, physically, energetically and viscerally. Collaborating with Jordan and this incredible team of women gave me that opportunity and we have created a delicate, vibey, honest and vulnerable collection of songs that we dove deep into to find out who they wanted to become.”

This team includes Annie Clements (Maren Morris, Amos Lee), Larissa Maestro (Margo Price),Kyshona Armstrong,  Jordan Brooke Hamlin (Brandi Carlile, Katie Herzig), engineer, Gena Johnson (Jason Isbell, John Prine) with background vocals from Grammy award-nominated duo The Secret Sisters.
