Her love for music grew from listening to Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin and Lady Gaga.
At the age of nineteen she joined a small upcoming record label called Spider Hip Music owned by Pia Dean.
Over the past three years she has been working as both a soloist on more of the older music scenes such as the swinging 40s and 50s sets working as a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like.
Nikki says: “I love singing, it has been a part of me since I was little girl, whenever I feel lost or down music is what keeps me going and I want to show everyone that music truly is the most powerful weapon of all.”
