Recent & Upcoming Shows

After a string of critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums that began with her 2001 Virgin records debut Everybody Got Their Something, Nikka, along with artists like Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone, became a bright star in the “nu-soul” firmament, renowned the world over for her unique style — a seductive alchemy that recombines the tropes of American soul and funk music into something wholly her own. In the years since her debut, she has toured with Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, AC/DC, Beck and D’Angelo, has recorded with superstar DJ and producer Mark Ronson, was nominated for an MTV Music Award, and had multiple hit singles in Europe. Nikka also collaborated with Prince on several occasions: she wrote Silver Tongue with him, which became the B-side for his single Call Your Name, she performed with him at his Live At the Aladdin Las Vegas show (that was released on DVD), she was his special guest for one of his 21 Nights in London shows at the O² during the Summer of 2007 and opened for him at the Forum in LA in 2011. Known for the raw allure and energy of her kinetic live performances, Nikka’s voice and stage presence have been compared favorably to everyone from Janis Joplin to Chaka Khan to Sly Stone. Her new album Nikka and Strings is the latest milestone on her fascinating journey.
