59th Annual Grammy Awards!

by Nicki Kris on December 14, 2016
Falling to Pieces, a song I co-wrote with Kevin McNoldy, was recognized by the Recording Academy of Arts and Sciences by being placed on the official 1st round Grammy Ballot in both Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. This is my 4th year in a row on the official ballot in both of these categories, an accomplishment that I do not take for granted; and, it’s even more special this time around because of the meaning and message tied to this song.

The response from my peers during this year’s campaign was overwhelming and while we ultimately weren’t chosen by the Nominations Review Committee to receive an official Grammy nomination, we were able to spread our message of empowerment, perseverance, love, and strength across the globe. I can’t thank the wonderful NARAS members (many of whom have become friends and future collaborators) enough for their continued support and musical encouragement. You are all awesome!!

Congratulations to all the nominees and especially to those who have become a part of my NARAS family. I’m rooting for you all!

Jamsphere Independent Music Magazine review of ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’

by Rick Jamm on December 10, 2015
Nicki Kris: ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’ – a suggestive and voluptuous soundscape!
…”Nicki’s uniquely lovely voice has almost always been unbelievably moving; her very subtle inflections, powerful and intricate lyrics, emotionally precise delivery, adding fuel to the artistic fire. Now with ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’, the musical arrangement is more colorful and complexly layered, a sumptuous vocal melody abounds, while Nicki’s – both earthy yet angelic voice – and the understated synth strings give this track an almost unbearable poignancy. The suggestive and voluptuous soundscape of ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’, serves not only to highlight Nicki Kris’ truly gifted songwriting and lyricism but stands as a showcase for the full expression and emotion this singer is capable of. ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’, given more than the cursory two plays, will begin to reveal a subtle and understated beauty and elegance rarely found in a music industry intent on mass marketing, radio play singles and lyrics you pick up on first listen. Nicki’s turn into more introspective electronic music on this single, suits her well. The haunting beauty of the track evokes something familiar. Hearing ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’ is like discovering a secret that was first whispered to you long ago. You can tell Nicki Kris and (producer / co-writer) Kevin McNoldy invested a great deal of effort, emotion, energy, and feeling into this song.”

Rockbandom Magazine review

by Scotty-D on February 13, 2015
Review:
Superb singer/songwriter and multi talented. Influenced by a broad range of mixed genres she has the voice of an angel and she sounds like some of the great classic singers such as Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Pat Benatar etc, and accompanied by the modern music sounds of today really makes her stand out. Vocally supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is just fantastic. I am really into Nicki I believe with such talent she's going places.
