When Jessie Mae Robinson wrote Cold, Cold Feeling back somewhere in the 1940/50’s she probably would never have imagined that 66 odd years later, a version like this, would emerge from (let’s face it) such a surprising place. Sure, T Bone Walker’s cover in 1952 did it justice, bet hey you gotta call it how it is….
Nicky Bramble is really one of those rare undiscovered singers (that thankfully hasn’t been captured by Sir Cowell and his Syko boys), who effortlessly stands above the norm and blind-sides you within the first couple of minutes.
Cold, Cold Feeling starts with a rare Hammond sound we seldom hear these days, swiftly followed by the sublime vocal delivery of Miss Bramble, embodying fully, the emotion of the original.
Little else needs to be said, other than listen and decide for yourself…
Nicky Bramble is an emerging early Jazz and Blues singer. Her honesty and passion, combined with a raw, yet soulful voice, captures her audience and is earning her many new admirers.
Growing up and living in Banbury (historically a hotbed for musicians - most notably Fairport Convention and their long running festival ‘Cropedy’ hosted just a few miles down the road), Nicky was immersed in live music from a very young age, where she honed her talent to the proverbial ‘T’.
With a particular passion for the early Blues Women who stood up with the Jazz bands, Nicky manages to re-weave their rich, timeless tapestries, whilst effortlessly making them her very own.
Performing live… Nicky is joined by her band of equally fine musicians including Ian Bramble (Hammond and slide) who has played with BB King and The Popes.
