Bassist and vocalist Nicki Parrott was born in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. She got her musical start studying flute and piano, but switched to double bass so she could join her sister’s band. Parrott studied at the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, and quickly thereafter began touring and playing with professional bands across Australia. Whenever possible, she took lessons with top bassists, including Ray Brown and John Clayton.

In 1994, Parrott was awarded an Arts Council of Australia grant to come to New York and study with acclaimed bassist Rufus Reid, and in 2000, she became a fixture at the late Les Paul‘s regular Monday-night session at Iridium Jazz Club. Paul encouraged Parrott’s vocal talents, and she’s emerged as a fine singer and award-winning composer who’s recorded several of her own albums and appeared on dozens of records by other artists.

Parrott also performs in Broadway ensembles; her credits include Avenue QYou’re a Good Man Charlie BrownImaginary FriendsSummer of ’42 and Jekyll and Hyde.
