UNCUT Magazine, Sept 2015, 8/10 stars, Andrew Mueller 

“Terrific second album by under-regarded British country singer. If Danni Nicholls came from Nashville rather than Bedford she would already be better known. After all she possesses an old-school country voice as capable of a sumptuous Cline-like croon as it is of the husky intimacies of an Alison Krauss, and a warm, wry line in confessional songwriting. Mockingbird Lane was recorded in Nashville, which will struggle to produce many better albums this year. “Back to Memphis” is an understated soul Epic, and “Feel Again” a spare but unsparing take on the heartbreak ballad.”

Mockingbird Lane is an album artfully produced so that it has a live sound that is fresh and slightly unfinished, this lack of studio burnishing leaves the music charmed with a natural purity Danni definitely touches your emotional soul this album is destined to get her name out far and wide. Mockingbird Lane resonates with every broken heart and connects to those times when life is tough and emotionally challenging while at the same time the beat is uplifting and brings a wry smile to the broken hearted.

“Danni Nicholls is a classic songwriter, her feet so firmly rooted in Americana you can almost her the creak of cowboy boots on the studio floor. Her sophomore record Mockingbird Lane sees her on fine form surrounded by the cream of Nashville”
