Biography

Nikki Holland was raised in the heart of entertainment, Las Vegas, NV. In her travels around the country, and overseas on a civilian mission, she picked up songwriting. She began performing in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, and recorded her first EP in Hampton, VA with her band, 3 Kates and a Joe. Nikki performed regularly as a solo act singer/songwriter across southeastern Virginia, and then recorded her next singles in Chesapeake, VA before moving to New Mexico.

Long in support of charitable causes, Nikki has teamed up with national anti-drunk driving initiatives, foster children advocacy and LGBT causes. Since moving to the Detroit area of Michigan, she joined BMI, recorded and released her first professional full-length CD, "Hold On" (available on iTunes, Amazon, etc.) and completed a collaborative project about mentoring and fostering kids in need of care, with members of long-standing Irish band, Blackthorn, and rapper Siv.

While her first CD allowed her to dance around the genres with collaborations, including her own brother on one of the tracks, Nikki has taken a definitive focus on her music styling in the process of recording her second CD, set to release in 2015. She has assembled talented musicians from several genres into her project, with experiences spanning Blues/Jazz, Country, Afro-Cuban/Latin, and Classic Rock. Her songs resonate with a large audience because they share that common thread of struggling with the expectations of life and love, and because she's found that way to break out as "uniquely Nikki" and uniquely Americana.

Nikki Holland Shows Diversity with "Hold On"

"Hold On" demonstrates an eclectic catalog of music genres that are clearly designed to shoulder the meaning and emotions of their respective tracks. Further, it is atypical from debut CD's that forever lock a new artist into a particular genre, thus, hindering them from ever demonstrating future musical variance.

The journey through the styles presented begins with the song, "The Only Words", that reflects the desire to seek resolution to relationship struggles before the proverbial "too little, too late" result occurs. What is unique in this colloquial rendering is the construction of the music behind the cycle of emotions that occur throughout the song. This music support is common throughout the CD.

Now, the diversity does not end at the incorporation of differing genres. The subject matter and perspectives, thereof, tug at not only frustration to emotional pain but also serve the sultry side of desire as heard in "Secret". This little gem will make even the most sexual boaster in your circle of friends blush while looking for a pole to brush up against.

There's even something for the crowd who loves the hard and aggressive sounds of the female voice in "Miss Understood". Just when they thought the CD wasn't going to have a full section of feedback guitars, the listener becomes pleased with a song having some hard distortion and, wouldn't you know it, a grungy guitar solo to finish it off!

While this reviewer would have rather heard a more representative song like "At All" as the first song to get him in an excited state as preparation for a great journey, this artist is certainly one to watch climb the charts to stardom.

I highly suggest picking up a copy of "Hold On" from any of the major online music retailers as Nikki is now in the studio recording her second CD. Now would be a good time to start obtaining her catalog.
