Those who have seen Carolina girl Nikki Hill sing her ass off agree—this isn’t just another newcomer on the scene, this is a ‘whiplash’ moment. Where did this fireball come from? Why haven’t I heard of her before? If you haven’t heard of Nikki Hill yet, you soon will, and once you see her perform, you won’t forget her.
Hill and her band have been touring extensively following the independent release of debut album 'Here's Nikki Hill' in 2013 leaving jaws on the floor along the way. With a no-filter energy, and explosive live show, they deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock 'n' roll again! Nikki’s unique voice with raw rock and soul dynamics mixed with the strength, passion, and honesty of blues shouters of the past, steers the driving guitar from Matt Hill, and a tight rhythm section provided by Ed Strohsahl (bass) and Joe Meyer (drums, percussion), to create a breath of fresh air with their authentic approach to American roots music.
Nikki Hill's self-titled, independently released EP in June of 2012 created a heavy and sudden international underground buzz that the band has traveled with from state to state and overseas to Europe and Australia. Those 4 tunes penned by Hill combined with memorable live performances, has drawn a wide range of people from every avenue and musical tastes to their shows. One club advertisement will call Nikki “The Southern Fireball”, “the New Soul Sensation”, “amazing R&B Shouter”, and even “the new Queen of Rock n' Roll”.
If you haven’t heard of her yet, prepare for your ‘whiplash moment’—you have been warned!
