Just trying to live down to that is making us sick and crazy. Both literally and metaphorically. My music is made to try and shed light on the deception. To help close and heal those wounds…in defense of Love.
Niki My Records; My Tale: The daughter of a jazz musician and pop lover, I was reared in an eclectic soup of genres and styles that only grew more diverse as I got old enough to explore music in my own right. I coined the term “Dirty Jazz” to describe my format-defying blend of Hip Hop, Jazz and Soul that has attracted fans worldwide. My self-promoted, debut EP First Light was a labour of love and determination - personally financed on my credit cards - which, despite it’s “trial by fire”, novice promotion, went on to garner praise, feature spotlights, interviews, chart positions, and regular rotation at over 150 shows and stations around the world. The First Light EP was a big learning curve.
The process of recording and especially promoting…Suffice to say, I’ve learned a thing or two! Dawn’s Rise is a 7 song digi EP (4 new tracks, plus the First Light ones – back by popular demand). It’s geared to flesh out the story I started to tell and position me for the production and release of my first album, Lost Girl Found. I did take a much more active role in the production phase of these new tracks. So, even more of me is in these new records.
I’m really proud of what we’ve done and I hope my fans and supporters will be proud too. I am currently back in writing mode, expanding my songwriter's catalogue and blessed to be collaborating with talented musicians in Nashville, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and the Netherlands. Sneak listens and previews of what I'm up to can be caught backstage. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
