Nicola Hogg’s first single ‘Flow’ won the Mayor of London Gigs Songwriting Award sponsored by PRS for music. This took her to play the PRS stage at Glastonbury earlier this year alongside Mullally, Everything Everything & producer Naughty Boy. Since then she’s independently released three more singles ‘Swim Deep’, ‘This Is Home’ & her latest 'Magic Carpet' which have received multiple radio plays on BBC Introducing. Her music is built upon a foundation of classic songwriting influenced by Bacharach & David, Hall & Oates and Fleetwood Mac. It is packed with fresh & personal lyrical content that bends cliques whilst delivering a message of truth. She has been featured in the London Evening Standard, Metro & The BBC London News. Nicola Hogg is a truly grassroots artist making her living from busking on the London Underground. She writes songs from her experience and struggle and the way she views the world.
