“Niki J. Crawford’s first EP titled the Genesis Block is carried by soaring and multi-layered vocals, her most fully realized work to date that is finely attuned and anchored by the type of rhythmic instrumentation that allows her range and depth to be heard in its finest hour. The songs are rooted in unabashed free expression with profoundly selfless lyrical compositions usually reserved for the most mature of songwriters. Each track teeters on themes of romance and conceit while remaining heartfully optimistic throughout the final verse”.

Niki J Crawford and her band bring the heat with a high energy soul get down. After a short break following her latest tour, where she performed more than 200 shows worldwide, Niki is back with a new band, new songs and a new show. Niki is an American Recording Artist/Songwriter from the small country town of Springhill, Louisiana with a powerful, unforgettable and melodic voice. The singer/song writer crafts poignant lyrics and creates music with a Soul-Funk-R&B sound that you can feel. Niki has been singing since she was 6-years-old. From her roots as the lead soloist in her hometown church choir to the recently completed touring, her talent has continued to evolve as one of the strongest voices in music.

Niki and the band have shared the stage and have played with Carlos Santana, Snoop Dogg, Al Green, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Aaron Neville, Macy Grey, Booker T Jones, The Roots, Galactic and Orgone just to name a few of the legendary performers who have sought out her talent. She has performed on various late-night TV shows such as Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and Saturday Night Live and lit up festival stages across the world like Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Montreal Jazz, Summer Camp, Bear Creek, All Good, High Sierra and Jam Cruise.
