The North Central Florida Blues Society is pleased to announce that Nikki Hill will play the High Dive in Downtown Gainesville on Sunday, May 12.
Heavily influenced by Etta James, Ruth Brown, and Little Richard, yet also sharing the spirit of contemporary artists like Amy Winehouse and Imelda May, the 27-year-old Hill sings down-home dirty R&B and blues and is creating a buzz in the industry. Her charisma and stage presence is as apparent as her talent, and the North Carolina native, now based in St. Louis, has been described as a “Southern fireball.” Her guitarist (and husband) Matt Hill was winner of the 2011 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut before he and Nikki joined forces.
Local favorites the Jacoby Brothers Band will open the show.
