Nicolette (full name Nicolette Suwoton) is a UK singer-songwriter of Nigerian parentage. Living in London as of 2010, she was born 1964 in Glasgow, Scotland, and has lived in Nigeria, Switzerland, France, and Belgium. Her music, although falling broadly into the field of electronica, is characterised by many influences, including, jazz, classical, blues, folk, and African. This has resulted in a highly individualistic sound due in part to the diverse variety of music her father played and taught her as a child. Known for her distinctive sensual, childlike voice, she has been described as “Billie Holiday on acid”.
