Nicky Click puts on one hell of a show. But to know Miss Click is to realize that underneath the wigs, make-up, scandalous outfits, and external outrageousness lies a quiet introspective New Hampshire queer femme.
Nicky’s first album “You Are Already A Member” arrived during the mid 2000s DIY electro boom. Alongside her comrades Scream Club and Jenna Riot, Nicky Click built a loyal, solid fan base through constant touring and festival appearances. 2008 saw the arrival of Click’s sophomore album, the classic “I’m On My Cell Phone”. The title track become one of Logo’s most-played videos that year, increasing Click’s visibility as she added Europe to her busy tour roster.
Most recently Nicky Click has released her third album, the daring “Metaphorically...Of Course” on her own Crunks Not Dead Records.

This new album, more so than the first two, perfectly summarizes the eclectic artistry of Nicky Click.

"on performance artist Nicky Click: Her silly beeping beats and breathy breathless hyper-sexy delivery is seriously avant-garde, in the tradition of Lena Lovich, Nina Hagen, The Waitresses, and other 80s new wave girl weirdos. Her live shows feature lots of parading and stomping in latex and garter belts and are super fun."
