When a rock ‘n roll band is fronted by an electrifying voice like Nikki Lamborn’s, when its songs are written by the gifted Catherine Feeney, when its musicians are world class, it’s called NEVER THE BRIDE. And people who ‘know’ know it.


NIKKI LAMBORN: Lead Singer
Described as the love child of Robert Plant and Tina Turner, Nikki struck out for herself at only 15…a singing waitress and a hairdresser, and then off for the bright lights of London to follow her dream of making a name for herself in music. When Roger Daltrey personally calls you to perform with The Who and you give Diva Dame Shirley Bassey goosebumps, a singer could be forgiven for thinking that dream could come true.

CATHERINE FEENEY: Keyboards, Guitar, Vocals
Glaswegian Catherine Feeney also headed for the bright lights…and found Nikki on the stage of a London pub. A composer, a keyboardist and guitarist, when these two met something very special was born: NEVER THE BRIDE.

BOYS IN THE BAND
Led by Catherine, the boys in the band are some of the best musicians in the business and have performed with artists such as Tina Turner, Elton John, Eric Clapton, James Brown, Steve Marriot, Mark Knopfler and many many more.

NEVER THE BRIDE have performed live and recorded with some of the world’s top musicians: The Who, ZZ TOP, Alice Cooper, Robert Plant, Peter Frampton, Paul Rodgers and Gary Brooker, The Pretenders, Procol Harum… all left breathless by their talent.

At The Royal Albert Hall, Roger Daltrey held up Nikki’s hand and shouted out, “Nikki Lamborn has the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin and I know what I’m talking about, I knew Janis.”

All around the world Nikki and Catherine have stunned the rich and famous: The Kennedys, The British Rock Symphony Orchestra, a private performance with Cher, Robert Plant as they performed their own arrangement of his song “Going To California”. The very song they recorded on the Zeppelin tribute album “Encomium” which earned NEVER THE BRIDE their first gold disc.

Check out the Songs section to see Never the Bride on Stairway to Heaven and Kashmir with the full orchestra.

Nikki and Catherine produced Bassey’s Get The Party Started album. The album broke world records with the longevity of her chart career, reaching Number 6 in the UK charts. Her version of The Living Tree was a top 40 hit sung by Bassey in the presence of The Queen on a The Royal Variety Performance.
