This is our third in a four part series of personal interviews with Nikki W. Listen to our latest podcast about her here. Nikki explains to CanadianMade Audio producer Rita Rich how the song ” Superman” came about. Superman is quite amazing and we love the words. It’s relevant and timely for all young teens, and more importantly it seems to be able to transcend generations of listeners ranging from those who are juggling their day to day insanity of doing it all…like work, school, commuting, relationships and/or family and the kids.
Nikki has toured southern Ontario and select cities in the U.S. Learn more about how she’s experienced some dark days and is now enjoying being in the limelight. Nikki is full of stories, like how she can’t even get into any clubs because she is so young.
She has had some gigs, and tells CanadianMade Audio that she even got to play at Disney!
If you visit her Facebook page you can see she is starting to get some traction and pick up from others. For example,
- She was nominated for 2014’s CHRW 94.9 FM / chrwradio.com Local EP of the Year.
- Sleepingbagstudios also commented about her song Superman. “I bet if you sat down with the creators of Superman and asked if they thought their superhero icon would become a literal metaphor for strength in our pop-culture they’d say ‘no way.’ Yet, here we are countless years later with countless artists & bands, speakers and writers referring to the man in the red-cape in comparison to our strongest moments…and our weakest as well. In “Superman,” from Nikki W., I was shocked to find that even here at this point in the EP she was able to heavily impress me and my eardrums; this is another absolute standout for her performance and delivery”
- And, she is noted in another podcast series called, Women of Substance Radio & Podcast, along with some great female musicians! Episode 59, @ 22 minutes in!
- Canadian Beats Blog also interviewed her last summer, where she explains some of the things she likes best
