Roger Daltrey broadcast “Nikki Lamborn has the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin and I know what I’m talking about, I knew Janis”. In the very heart of the notorious London rock and roll scene exists a whirlwind duo of female energy and ecstasy, please meet Never The Bride. Along with their band of world class musicians their live performance is to be held in awe, purely in anticipation of the live operatic architecture they consistently unfurl upon their willing audiences. Having invaded venues ranging from The Royal Albert Hall (on multiple occasions), playing alongside Elton John at the Royal Albert Hall, Touring UK & Australia with The British Symphony Rock Symphony alongside, Roger Daltrey, Paul Rogers, Wembley Arena supporting The Who, Glastonbury Festival with Dame Shirley Bassey, Various with Eric Clapton, The Viper Room in LA and Euro-fests galore - to intimate spaces like The Green Note in Camden, Never The Bride have amazed and floored audiences and peer groups alike over their 25 years of service – these ladies are true rock and roll royalty. Never the Bride can augment the line up with other great singers and musicians to bring your event exactly what you’re looking for, from Brass to Strings, from Banjos to Bodruns. Roger Daltrey broadcast “Nikki Lamborn has the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin and I know what I’m talking about, I knew Janis”. The legendary Dame Shirley Bassey called the girls “inspirational” They have performed shows for Cher, Ruiz Bernard Picasso, The Kennedys..and more. Bob Harris from BBC Radio 2 referred to them as “one of the best live bands in Britain”; the ladies’ roll-call list is simply mind blowing – as are the stories the ladies readily share. Bristol born Nikki Lamborn carries the dynamo vocal lead, while Glaswegian, Catherine ‘Been’ Feeney asserts the ‘sonic art’ with keys and vocals. Joined by a world class band their raw, unfettered talent is undeniable and is enough to justify the impression the girls have left on audiences throughout Never The Bride’s 25 years of global domination. Nikki also holds a successful reputation as a vocal coach; described as “the best I have ever known” by Beverley Knight and has appeared on TV as a vocal coach on BBC’s “Just The Two Of Us” and Channel 4’s “Faking It” series as well as recently taking part as a judge in BBC1s new Saturday night Prime time entertainment show All together Now. (On Air 27th Jan 2018). Nikki Lamborn was also approached in 2016 by Film Director Duncan Jones (David Bowies Son) Moon, Source code, Warcraft, and asked if she would appear in his latest Film MUTE which goes out on Netflix in February. She’s cast along side Alex Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, & Justin Theroux. Capturing the electric and unquestionable live energy, Never The Bride’s presence has also been noted as one of LA’s famous Viper Room’s top favorite moments of the past 21 years. Sunset and Clark magazine Never The Bride have released seven studio albums to date, with their latest outing, due to be released later this year. Their legendary career merely represents their journey so far – and remains a testament for what dangerously is yet to come.
