Nikki was raised in East Liverpool, OH and started singing in church at the age of 3. At the age of 10, she was performing at weddings. However, interestingly enough, she was never introduced to the band scene until about 10 years ago. She was asked to join her first band called first band which was called Southern Ruckus, by Rick Prasco Jr. of Lisbon. They played mostly country. Her next band was Kross Kreek which she started with drummer John Speziale. They performed rock, country, country rock and a little blues and brought down the house every time!! After a long 5 years the band members parted ways and Nikki joined another band for a short time but realized she needed to branch out and do what she wanted. It wasn’t long before she met up with Scott Adkins and Jeff daugherty and together started Strum. Now that Scott has taken Strum to another level in Columbus, Nikki is on her own again but still rockin it out when she gets the chance with the über talented Brad Gibson. Nikki hopes to someday make her mark on this community .
