In July 2017, Nancie Schipper released her first song in nearly two years, after working with ARIA award winner producer Matt Fell. The result was Corner Store, the first single from her new album Sleeptalking, which was quick to attract attention from triple j & unearthed. She received stellar reviews from presenters, who dubbed her sound as ‘irresistibly catchy pop music’, and was chosen as a triple j Unearthed feature artist.

The 19 year old is no newcomer to the stage, having spent the last six years tirelessly working her way around the scene, cutting her teeth playing pub gigs whilst too young to buy a drink at the bar. Swapping an acoustic for a telecaster and full band, the hard work is paying off for Schipper, who showcased at Bigsound this year to packed rooms and scored a slot opening for Alex Lahey on her regional tour this October/November. The last year has seen her support Ball Park Music, Tia Gostelow, Rat!Hammock and perform at St Kilda Festival and Queenscliff Music Festival.

“From the writing to the production and performance, this exudes nothing but confidence. More songs like this, you’ll have a career before you know it.” -Richard Kingsmill, triple j
