Stevie Nicks

Portrait Of Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks (born 1948) – is an American singer-songwriter, who in the course of her work with the band Fleetwood Mac and her extensive solo career, has produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold over 140 million albums.

Flo about Stevie:
‘The first time I heard Stevie Nicks, I had just fallen in love with a boy in a band. I was on a family holiday in Italy. Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours was one of the only CDs at the house where we stayed, and I was like, “Oh, OK. What’s this?” I listened to the whole thing nonstop. There’s something about Stevie that’s really pure. When she sings, she sounds angelic but also wild and free, like she’s getting completely lost in the song. Her new album, In Your Dreams, is just classic, classic songwriting. With the big, expansive guitar sounds, it’s moving in a more modern direction, but it still sounds like Stevie Nicks. She’s very much a storyteller, and she has a fantastic ability to make songs that you feel immediately connected to. Creating that intimacy while also retaining a mystique is something I learned from her. She also definitely influenced me to wear a cape. I love a cape onstage.’

Flo also mentioned Stevie in one of the interviews for YouTube – Get More Into Music, 2011.

There is a Stevie Nicks clip of her just warming up and singing while she’s just getting her make up done. Must be backstage, she’s wearing such a beautiful yellow dress. She just sings and it’s so free and pure like a bird. She’s harmonising with someone else, not even knowing she’s being filmed. She’s the purest expression of joy and of just being happy to sing, she just sounds so amazing.’

‘I love everything in her, from the voice to her style. I like watching her old performances on YouTube, the way she moves and things’

Florence + The Machine have done two Fleetwood Mac (the band that Stevie Nicks was singing with) covers – The Chain at Glastonbury 2010 and Silver Springs at the War Child concert at St John at Hackney Church in 2016.
