Domenica "Nikka" Costa is an American singer whose music combines elements of funk, soul, and blues. She also had a career as a child singer starting in the early 1980s. She is the daughter of notable music producer Don Costa and is married to Australian producer/songwriter Justin Stanley.
Pebble To A Pearl - the latest radiant gem by the gifted singer-songwriter and performer Nikka Costa - is far and away her most direct and convincing musical statement yet. If this is Costa's most pleasing album to date - and it clearly is - then it's exactly because the woman singing to us so powerfully has finally found the creative freedom to first and foremost please herself.
For a lifelong soul music lover like Costa, making her album and now having it affiliated with the legendary Stax Records, whose roster included some of the best in soul music like Otis Redding and Isaac Hayes, is the fulfillment of a dream. "How perfect is that?" Costa says with a huge, winning smile. "Stax is the epitome of what I'm about - that was the original, integrated soul music. That's the vibe that moved me about soul music when I was twelve, and it moves me still."
