Nicky Spence (tenor)

Nicky Spence is one of Scotland’s proudest sons, and his unique skills as a singing actor and the rare honesty of his musicianship have earned him a place at the top of the classical music profession.

Nicky won a record contract with Decca Records while studying at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and then took a place as an inaugural Harewood Artist at the English National Opera. Since then, he has gone on to sing operatic roles at London’s Royal Opera House, the Metropolitan Opera, Staatsoper Berlin, Opéra national de Paris, Madrid’s Teatro Real, La Monnaie and the Glyndebourne Festival.

In demand on the recital platform, Nicky sings regularly with The Myrthen Ensemble and enjoys collaborations with leading artists such as Malcolm Martineau, Julius Drake, Roger Vignoles, Graham Johnson, Sholto Kynoch, Iain Burnside, Simon Lepper and Joseph Middleton, appearing at leading recital and chamber music venues the world over.

Nicky has recorded prolifically and won both the BBC Music Magazine Vocal Award and Gramophone Solo Vocal Award for his recording of Janáček’s The diary of one who disappeared with Julius Drake, released on Hyperion. Other solo recordings include recital discs with Malcolm Martineau for Chandos and Resonus, and Richard Strauss lieder with Roger Vignoles for Hyperion. Nicky’s discography ranges from Handel, Mozart and Brahms to Wagner, Britten, Dove and Turnage.
