I remember Nikka played Coachella a few years back. I'd love to see her back on the bill. What a great live performer. An amazing set of pipes, great live energy, really appealing melodies, a killer live band and really tight production on her albums. I thought she was going to blow up, but after her 2nd album she's dropped off the face of the planet. I'm guessing that her record company dropped her since her official website now links directly to her personal MySpace page which doesn't give up too much information besides the fact that she seems to occasionally play one off shows in So Cal and that she recently had a baby.

Seems she opened for Prince in Europe last year.

If you're unfamiliar with Nikka. Think Janis Joplin/Tina Turner style vocals with heavy funk influence, but a modern sensibility. You know, she's like Joss Stone, but good.

She has recently entered rehab (4th time). She has been addicted to hookers and blow for the last 14 months. She is a sad story. Hopefully she kicks it this time. Pray for her.

Riiight. So, if I take an H2 Blocker, will you disappear in 2-3 weeks?

Just talking to myself here, really, but it looks like Nikka has been up to something. She's got two new songs recorded including a rousing cover of The White Stripes' 'Denial Twist'.

It took me a couple of listens to warm to her cover, but now I think it's rather excellent. What a killer set of pipes this woman has.

I wondered too.
Then I looked at Wikipedia and got caught up.
It's too bad she didn't get as big as people thought she would.

She played recently and I had tickets and ended up not being able to go, it sucked. Love her, she should be added.

Goddaughter, I believe. Her father was an arranger for many artists, including Sinatra.
