Doors open at 6 pm Nikki Talley is a hardworking, energetic, mountain girl with a big voice. She is one half of a FULL TIME touring husband & wife DUO based out of Asheville, NC contributing acoustic guitar, clawhammer banjo & of course her trademark stunning vocals. Since January 2012 she & husband Jason Sharp have played 120+ shows in 6 months in 10 states throughout the Southeast touring out of their Chevy van, Blue Bell, they bought w/ money raised from a sucessful Kickstarter campaign. Raised in Ruffin, North Carolina and hailing from Asheville, it’s only fitting that Nikki's music is as eclectic as the state that boasts the mountains and the sea. Trying to pin down Nikki’s style, critics and reviewers alike have compared her to Patty Loveless and Gillian Welch, but to leave the comparisons there would be doing a disservice to her fiery stage performance, hauntingly seductive and raw gritty lyrics, lifted by a voice that harkens back to her Appalachian roots, and shores up on the edges of contemporary country, folk, and old time that has her audiences stomping and clapping for more. She is accompanied by Jason Sharp on fingerstyle & flat picking guitar as well as bass. Jacksonville's Roy Peak and Nashville's Jeff Ruby kick off the night of music. One thing she isn’t: afraid of the microphone. Talley has undeniable stage presence… –Mountain Express
