Nicki Kris is a female pop music singer / songwriter based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her music has captured an international audience since the soul stylings of her debut album release I Come Alive in 2013, to the Americana flavor of her follow-up EP Dream Big in 2014, to her electronic-influenced singles Picture Yourself and You’ve Got A Hold On Me in 2015 / 2016. Her songs have been featured in award-winning movies, TV shows, and on radio stations worldwide, and she has been on the official ballot for the Grammy Awards for the past three years (she has placed in the categories Song Of The Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Album).
Nicki’s unique and powerful diva-style voice is reminiscent of classic singers such as Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, and Pat Benatar, while her songwriting takes a decidedly modern turn, whether it be soul, Americana / country, or even electronic-based. With more music due in 2016, this singer songwriter-on-the-rise is one to watch! Nicki’s latest single, You’ve Got A Hold On Me, can be downloaded for free by signing up for her newsletter here.
Nicki’s new 2015 / 2016 release is a power-pop ballad with lush synthesizers, soaring vocals, haunting beats, and a mini-orchestra that could be a selection from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack just as quickly as it could be considered a romantic 80’s throwback single.
