“It is with much sadness and great respect that Backline Revival announces the departure of Nikki James. Nikki has been the reigning front woman of Backline Revival since 2011 and we have had the pleasure to witness the transformation as she's developed into the talent she is today. Unfortunately at this time Nikki and the band will be parting ways to pursue other interests. We have no doubt that with Nikki's growing talent and wealth of support she will continue to make waves in the London music scene and we trust you will join us in supporting her in all she does. Backline Revival hopes for your continued support while we move forward. Please check back for further announcements on what the future holds!!”
“Backline Revival takes half a dozen eclectic instruments -- from African hand drums to banjo and acoustic bass -- and blends them into a smooth-as-coffee blues hybrid sound. Channeling the roots of music, the band lay down a compelling groundwork of rhythms then tease out the musical nuances with sweet beckoning vocals and soulful solos. Delicious! ”
“She sang Rock’n’Roll for us along with that great band that played. I was told this was their first professional gig! Watch for them. They are “the” Backline Revival! ~Hubert Laurin (President `10 - Forest City Motorrad Club) ”
"This 5-piece band (3 males - 2 females) rocked our Cellar Lounge with a great energy and presence that we haven't seen for some time around here... the crowd wanted more at the end of the set, and they weren't disappointed... I hope they return to the club very soon and continue where they left off". Dave Taylor (Manager - London Music Club)
“Great group! Exceptional lead singer...talented, cute and a very sweet young lady..even if she wants to make you think she is tough sometimes...”
