Singer-songwriter Nicki Kris


Nicki Kris is a female pop music singer / songwriter based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her music has captured an international audience since the soul stylings of her debut album release I Come Alive in 2013, to the Americana flavor of her follow-up EP Dream Big in 2014, to her electronic-influenced singles Picture Yourself, You’ve Got A Hold On Me, and Falling To Pieces in 2015 / 2016, to her 2017 rock single Captain America (which is available to download for free by signing up for her email newsletter). Nicki’s new 2018 single is Heartbeat, which is leading to an album release by the same name later in 2018!

Nicki’s songs have been featured in award-winning movies, TV shows, and on radio stations worldwide, and she has been on the official ballot for the Grammy Awards for the past five years (she has placed in the categories Song Of The Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Album).

Nicki’s unique and powerful diva-style voice is reminiscent of classic singers such as Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, and Pat Benatar, while her songwriting takes a decidedly modern turn, whether it be soul, Americana / country, rock, or even electronic-based. With more music due soon, this singer songwriter-on-the-rise is one to watch!

Nicki’s Music

  • Heartbeat

    Nicki’s first single of 2018 is the title track from her upcoming album, Heartbeat. The song is a follow-up to her 2017 single, Captain America, based around the continuous 24-hour-a-day turmoil surrounding the current US Commander-In-Chief.

  • Captain America

    Captain America is an anthemic pop/rock song that asks each of us to find our inner superhero. We are all, or can be, “Captain America” in our daily lives. The song is the first single from Nicki’s upcoming 2018 album, Heartbeat.

  • Falling To Pieces

    Nicki’s new 2016 single is an anthemic response to the tragic event at Pulse in Orlando, promoting unity, perseverance, closeness, and love.  In the words of the OneOrlando Fund (where all iTunes sales for Falling To Pieces were donated), “This tragedy will not define us, but will bring us closer together.”

  • You’ve Got A Hold On Me

    Nicki’s new 2015 / 2016 release is a power-pop ballad with lush synthesizers, soaring vocals, haunting beats, and a mini-orchestra that could be a selection from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack just as quickly as it could be considered a romantic 80’s throwback single.

  • Picture Yourself

    Nicki’s first single of 2015 is the featured song in the new film Mother by ASD Media & Entertainment. Picture Yourself plays over the end credits, and is the perfect bookend to the story.

  • Dream Big

    Nicki’s 2014 EP, Dream Big, built on the success of her first album, and further expanded her foray into a more stripped-down Americana style of songwriting and production.
