NICOLE DUFFELL - TENOR SAXOPHONE
A formidable soloist in her own right, Nicole is a prolific composer/ arranger & also a graduate of the West Australian Conservatorium of Music. From age 18 she was already prominent in the West Australian music scene - her versatility as a tenor saxophonist has kept her involved in a diverse multitude of musical projects nationally & internationally, extending across a comprehensive range of musical styles.
After years of touring as a session musician across Australia, Nicole decided on settling in Europe. Then, after passing through Singapore in 2002 on what was supposed to be a stop-over, Nicole landed a contract to perform with the “Way Kool” band at the renown Somerset Jazz Club. A long list of prestigious engagements ensued (as well as her yearly pilgrimages to perform in Europe) plus numerous music & arts festivals. Nicole is currently preparing her first solo album to be recorded in Singapore.
