Currently based in Brooklyn, New York City. In between writing and performances he has been participating as part-time faculty at Stanford Jazz Workshop, Berklee College of Music and NYC’s Drummers Collective. He has written, toured and collaborated with numerous artists including but not limited to The Mars Volta, Meshell Ndegeocello, Sade Adu, John Cale (The Velvet Underground), Alice Smith, Lenny Kravitz, Basement Jaxx and Cody Chesnutt. Nicci Kasper is today’s answer to an empty void of Psychedelic Rock, Psych Folk, Space Rock and Hood Rock. Nicci provides major musical and stylistic direction much like Syd Barrett, Klaus Schultz, Clare Fischer, Bill Evans, and Freddie Mercury Synth bass and effects provide a pulsing undercurrent of danceable, chunky, post-punk grooves and menacing texture to every track he produces. Nicci’s production efforts combine these rock roots with a dirty, urban-laced undercurrent that owes much to classic “B-Boy” era hip-hop and early ‘80s electro. The final result is always current and timely, those in the know refer to it as now wave.
