“Nik West featured as one of the hottest releases. Also mentioned and featured are Jill Scott, Kelly Rowland, and Dorinda Clark-Cole.”

“Now THAT is how a bass is SUPPOSED to be played. Nik West understands the role of her instrument.”

Tony Franklin - Fender

“Nik West might be known to some, but will likely be a new treat for many. The vocalist and bassist delivers a welcome return to the funky, jazzy brand of neo-soul a la Jill Scott, N’dambi, and Ledisi. On her debut album, Just In the Nik of Time (released February), she takes care to avoid the highly programmed and electronic production of contemporary R&B, instead striving for a fuller sound with live instrumentation. Taken a listen for yourself in the live video above for “Forbidden Fruit” – homegirl gets down!”

“Nik West amongst the top ten artists of the summer.”

"Nik West is one 21st Century R&B artist who isn’t lacking in the chops department. She is a young electric bassist who clearly knows her way around her instrument and plays like she has been inspired by the funky likes of Graham, Louis Johnson (of Brothers Johnson fame) and Marcus Miller."
