Biography

Nicky Mehta is that singular artist who combines poignant, thoughtful lyrics, soaring melodies, and inventive guitar-work with an equally moving, confident performance. “With a pure, effortless alto voice and a poetry rare among her peers” she can “lead us into some deep waters without making us feel that we are about to drown.” As a songwriter, she is a consummate artist who finds joy and hope in the most unexpected places, and as a performer, she gives herself over completely to her audience with intensity, passion, and wit.

A seasoned musician, there can be no question that Mehta has paid her dues. In addition to her own solo work, she is one of the most sought-after back-up vocalists on the Winnipeg acoustic music scene, and has recorded, performed and toured internationally as a back-up singer with such notable artists as Sam Baardman, Mark Reeves and Rick Unruh. A sideline R & B/funk ensemble called Electric Lunchbox rounds out her performing schedule.
Since 1995, she has been fronting projects that have gained widespread attention. Her five-piece folk-rock band, Good Blind Soul, and a folk duo called Wellspring placed Mehta on all of Winnipeg’s premiere indoor and outdoor stages, playing coffeehouses to festivals. With these groups she released a four-song demo as well as a full-length recording of her original material, which received airplay on both the CBC and commercial radio.
