TWNS is an artistic leap forward from her previous project, Longings (2013), both musically and lyrically. Through an eclectic group of songs (blending elements of jazz, pop, r&b, and even drum & bass), TWNS features guitarist Mark Lettieri (Snarky Puppy, Kirk Franklin) on the tracks "I Rise," "Let Me Say Goodbye," and "Tell Me," as well as guitarist Bob Lanzetti (Snarky Puppy) on "Never Gets Old.". Before her solo career, Nikki was a key member of the contemporary vocal group Unveiled, which toured the East Coast for several years. She is featured on the group's three recordings as a singer/songwriter. As Unveiled's season of music drew to a close, Nikki continued to have the desire to write, sing, and record.
As she began working in the studio on her first solo project, more opportunities began to present themselves. Since 2006, Nikki has served as the Music Ministry Director at Bridgeway Community Church in Columbia, MD, which is one of the largest multicultural churches in the United States. Under the leadership of Dr. David Anderson, she has the honor of leading worship for a congregation of 4000+ people every weekend. In addition to singing, Nikki has also been invited all over the country to speak on issues of multicultural worship, vocal coaching, and team-building. Read more on Last.fm.
