Nikki Hill

Saturday 11 April 2020

“If Tina Turner and Little Richard had a daughter and raised her with the help of uncles James Brown and Chuck Berry, she’d be like Nikki Hill,” a US newspaper wrote about singer and songwriter Hill. Taking the R&B, soul, and gospel on which she was raised and blending them with the blues, garage, rock ‘n’ roll, and roots that she discovered herself, Hill found her own sound. Bringing her version of rock ‘n’ roll, she opened up for varied artists, ranging from Dr. John and Aaron Neville to rapper Nelly. Hill released her third album, Feline Roots, in 2018, and now tours with her own band, featuring her husband Matt Hill on guitar.
