The NickyClick is made up of several character's and alter egos. She attributes her "cousin" Petunia Pie with writing all her songs from her diary entries. The characters within The NickyClick are actually all the many sides and parts of her, the ones she wants to hide, the ones she is ashamed of, the sexy sides, the smart sides. In presenting these various faces to audiences and listeners (through song and perfromance), NickyClick hopes that viewers will feel as though there is an opportunity to "let go" and break down walls of limitation. The intention is to create a space and dialogue where people (especially women and queers) can release societal standards of what the face and actions of a woman should be, and create their own.
NickyClick had been described as a dance queen, a performance artist, quirky, weird, and so on. The point is she is original and is creating a new movement of feminist DIY dance music out of her bedroom that will empower, make people think, question, laugh and feel good. This album will make you tap your toes at your desk and help you enter the special mind and creative world of....The NickyClick.
