After paying his dues in the Chicago Rock N Roll scene in the late 70's and early 80's, Nik paved a new path towards a self-described "Funky-Blues". His tone is both stinging and soulful with an edge that is all his own. Vocally inspired by B.B. King and Johnny Winter, Nik's vocals are reminiscent of a harder edged blues singer. Currently living and performing on the West Coast, Nik is currently working on a new CD of all original material for a 2012 release.
