About

THE JOURNEY: 

I've spent 3 years hidden away, creating a new life in Switzerland, running up to the mountain tops of life and falling off its cliffs. All the while soulsearching and chasing down ideas and sounds for my next record to translate my life experiences and those of people around me into music.

Together with talented musicians we experimented and explored the musical landscapes.  After moving to London, I found my creative counterpart, Brendan Davies, and together we spent many hours, days, weeks enthusiastically producing, arranging, recording live instruments, vocals, programming beats, and creating rich electronic and acoustic textures of sound. 

BE A PART OF THIS JOURNEY:

Now my brand new EP 'Diamonds' has been finished and will be launched early 2019 but the first single Escape is coming Sep 19! 

Listen to short clips of it here: Diamonds

Two MUSIC VIDEOS are the in the plans. One of them is for the song "Diamonds." Independent TOUR is shaping up to Europe and West of USA.  And I'm inviting you into the process with me!

Your support and Pre-Order will make it possible to create two Music Videos and to realize 'Diamonds' TOUR which will give this EP a great chance to find its way into the world. My first single “Escape” is coming out this September, but the EP will be publicly out in February 2019. Pre-order your copy of “Diamonds” and hear the new record 4 months before the general public.

EXPERIENCES WITH YOU:

I'm offering some exclusive experiences such as: private concerts in your home, private Skype calls, a hang out with the band before our live shows, songwriting lessons and lots more!   10% of the proceeds will be donated to a cause that is important to me, Malala Fund (https://www.malala.org), in support of education for girls in countries where war, poverty and discrimination takes it away.

TOUR SCHEDULE: 

Here is my tour schedule so far and the list is growing and the West of US tour planning has just begun:

  • Sep 29, 2018 Hemingway Lounge, Karlsruhe, DE  
  • Oct 13, 2018 the AKI, Zürich, CH
  • Nov 8, 2018 Kowalski, Genova, IT
  • Nov 9, 2018 Rumenta, Genova, IT  
  • Feb 16, 2019 Kulturbühne Schlosskeller, Emmendingen, DE

  • Mar 3, 2019 Klosterscheune, Zehdenick, DE 
  • Mar 4, 2019 B-Flat, Berlin, DE

I can’t express how much your support means to me. You are the reason I continue to release music! 

Much love, Nikki

Risks and challenges

There are challenges that arise through out the making of the album, videos and tour that have to do with meeting deadlines and organisational points. Because I'm working independently and doing much of administrational and organisational work by myself it is important that I allow myself to delegate some jobs to other people in the team. But also I would like to allow myself to look for and welcome additional teammates who are happy to join. That is what I am prepared to do.
