When I watch Nikki Marrone perform, I stop. And watch. Her work is open, honest and warm, and she speaks with a real passionate, for both poetry and her range of subjects, that I do not often see. You can tell she loves poetry, words and emotion and makes an effort to get up on stage because of this. She addresses issues that I’ve never heard spoken of before from someone her age, from bipolarism to sin and sex and she is great to hear.

I have watched Nikki grow from nervous first-time slammer to assured feature act in less than a year and she never fails to move me with her passion and sincerity. She regularly takes difficult or well-worn topics and finds fresh and captivating ways through them, managing to hold audiences through her imaginative words and heartfelt veracity. As her voice goes from strength to strength, I’m very much looking forward to seeing what she brings next!
