Nikki Madden - Make Love Not War

Nikki Madden - Make Love Not War
Exceedingly witty songwriter hits home with lines such as 'where there's a will there's a lawyer'. Madden possesses a follow-if-you-can vibrato that won't sit still but the lyrics are the real draw here. Intelligent, acerbic, and impishly clever."

While jazz/folk veteran Nikki Madden’s songs deal with some pretty heavy topics – war, the marginalisation of queer relationships, the modern male identity crisis - she delivers them in trademark wryly humorous style, all couched in sensual, languorous arrangements.

Her roots as an activist folk singer went all the way back to the 1960s. “I remember as a teenager going up to the Wayside Chapel to listen to the poets and folk singers. I was impressed by the notion that you could change the world with songs. I’ve concentrated on writing about issues in my career – environmentalism, social justice, human rights – and I find that if I write my songs in a lightweight way, being a bit flip rather than preachy, it’s easier for them to be accessible.”

Propelled by zippy finger style guitar picking on the steel string, her 'grin & bare it' documentary style seems to have found a warm welcome with 21st century audiences.
