"BOO HOO" Now Available

Based out of the idyllic Gold Coast hinterland, singer-songwriter Nicky Convine presents you with the sun-soaked “Maya”, from her recently released debut album Boo Hoo. With a voice that immediately recalls some of the female vocal greats like Janis Joplin, Grace Slick and Florence Welch, Nicky weaves through a blend of country and new-folk, drawing the listener in with her deep, personal storytelling.

Boo Hoo comes from an unexpectedly extended journey through Canada – three months quickly turned into three years, giving Nicky a fount of stories, wonders and warnings that she carefully crafted into the collection of ten songs. Boo Hoo wasn’t purely created out of these though. Being as impossible as it is to suppress the Australian personality, Boo Hoo also serves as a showcase of Nicky’s love of the basic outback lifestyle, with the almost lullaby-like, simple instrumentation accompanying Nicky’s grounded lyrics.

“’Maya’ is about my beautiful elderly neighbour – since I returned from Canada, she’s always lived next to me, alone. She doesn’t speak English well, but we communicate fantastically over her amazing garden,” Nicky says. “It’s amazing, every single time it rains, Maya gets outside with her poncho and a huge smile and gets stuck right into it...she’s started pouring her life and soul into tending this garden and creating life from seeds, dirt, and hard work. It was impossible to not take inspiration from her passion and drive to give life to something beautiful.”

As the first taste from Boo Hoo, “Maya” exhibits the wide range of influences noticeable on the album, as well as Nicky’s talent for distilling the pure essence of everyday life and people into her art. 

Now available for purchase through the 'STORE' tab.
