Nicky Egan is an accomplished songwriter and keyboardist who commands the stage with captivating energy. Dubbed a "soul songstress" by Phillyburbs.com, Egan grew up in a Philadelphia 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. 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. 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 just completed her sophomore release, an EP entitled, The 45 Homestead Project. The EP is scheduled to be released through Ropeadope Records in spring 2014. This will be Egan's first venture as a newly signed Ropeadope artist.
