Payin' Dues - Nikki Hill

The North Carolina powerhouse singer who started out in church.

Nikki Hill is a blues shouter in the great tradition of Ruth Brown and Etta James. Her debut, 2013’s Here’s Nikki Hill, placed her in a raw R&B and rockabilly setting. Its follow-up, Heavy Hearts Hard Fists, is equally urgent and energetic, although Hill also reveals herself as a dab hand at slow blues and soulful ballads too.
