Doors: 7pm / Show: 9pm
The Nikki Hill Band is guaranteed to transport audiences to the early days of rock and roll record when they play Vancouver FanClub on Thursday, July 18.
Nikki Hill (www.nikkihillmusic.com) draws on vintage female rhythm and blues influences such as LaVern Baker, Etta James and Ruth Brown, as well as iconic male vocalists Otis Redding and Solomon Burke, without being pigeonholed strictly as a retro artist. Her tough vocal style adheres to contemporary sensibilities, yet evokes all the great female blues divas of previous decades.
Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, Hill honed her musical skills while singing in church gospel choirs until her teenage years. Her first 2011 live performance at the legendary Blues City Deli in St. Louis, Missouri with Matt Hill (guitar) sparked the beginning of a buzz that would garner attention and subsequent impromptu concerts.
Creating a whirlwind of excitement following her recent performances at Viva Las Vegas, the roots rock n' roller is currently touring throughout North America, Europe and Australia in support of her new release HERE'S NIKKI HILL, a 10-song follow-up to her successful 2012 self-titled EP. Produced independently by Hill and Felix Reyes at The House of Tone in Chicago, this album combines the flavors of American roots music, with teasing hints of vintage soul, blues and R&B. With honest vocals, driving rhythm guitar and a tight rhythm section, the ensemble takes what music lovers admire about American roots legends and then pushes it to a whole new intensity.
