Six years, two record deals, three tours, and two shelved albums later, Nikki realized she had very little control of the music she was making. She was dropped from her label contract, and to pay the bills, went on to become the go-to demo singer for producers like Rodney Jerkins and RedOne. Her natural ability for harmonies and life long studio experience kept producers calling, and paved a way for Nikki to learn the ropes directly from some of the best to have ever produced pop records.
In 2015, now under the guidance of BMG music publishing, Nikki turned her attention back to writing songs, this time with a specific focus on female singer/songwriters. Having been one herself, she brings a unique perspective to the room. Nikki found her niche working closely with young power-houses like JoJo and Hayley Kiyoko; even lending her pen to two Grammy nominated albums, Nas’ “Life Is Good” and Mya’s “Smoove Jones”. She continues to follow her passion advocating for artists, as well as writing & producing a pending solo project under an alias.
