In this episode we are joined by 2 of my favorite indie artists, Nicki Kris & Natalie Jean. We discuss whether to niche down into a micro genre, or try spreading ourselves across multi platforms. Creating for entertainment vs making a social impact, and balancing a busy personal life & day job with your creative career.
Nicki Kris is a female singer / songwriter based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her music has captured an international audience since the soul stylings of her debut to the Americana flavor of her follow-up EP. She’s launched several electronic-influenced singles leading up to her award-winning album release, Heartbeat in 2019.
Nicki’s songs have been featured in award-winning movies, TV shows, and on radio stations worldwide, and she is a feature artist on my latest single “I keep rollin”.
Natalie Jean is an award winning, multi-nominated singer/songwriter performer, and a Voting Member in the Recording Academy (GRAMMYS). She sings and writes for many genres, such as Jazz, Pop, R&B, Blues, World, Rock, Country, Americana, Inspirational, Adult Contemporary, Alternative, and, Dance, and sings in multiple languages: French, Spanish, English, and Haitian Creole.
