“If Tina Turner & Little Richard had a daughter & raised her with the help of uncles James Brown and Chuck Berry, she’d be like Nikki Hill.”

Nikki’s new record, “Feline Roots” will be independently released, again on house label Deep Fryed Records. Out November 16, Hill lets her soul rip on this new collection of songs, displaying her now well-known stance to champion for the pioneers of roots and rock n’ roll, while remaining in perpetual forward motion, inviting anyone who wants to come along for the journey. Johnny Thunders straddling guitar, Bad Brains’ rock meets reggae, Stonesy groove, Sister Rosetta Tharpe rave up gospel power, all receive nods of recognition. Hill is unafraid of her past or experiences, and puts it out there for the sake of the song. The songs imagine the southern soul rocker at times waving her flag in surrender, then in the next moment finding her way back into the climb, bending through supercharged blues, punk soul, revival tent gospel, rockabilly shouts, whatever it takes to get there. It’s her version of rock n’ roll that can only come from her stories. Nikki has never been afraid to take the road less traveled, and it’s clear with “Feline Roots” that she’s living every word.

“A fiery performer, channeling some of rock & roll’s most heralded voices, revamping the squalls, screams and shouting-at-the-devil of rock’s pentecostal roots to a blazing new take that she can rightfully call her own, a soul that owes as much to AC/DC as Aretha.” — Okayplayer
“…Hill’s got too much passion to tidy things up, but she knows exactly what she’s doing.”
— SPIN
“A total knockout, one of the best and most exciting records of the year.”
— Philadelphia Inquirer
“When you have a powerful Southern soul singer with a penchant for AC/DC, you know you’re going to get something badass…A talent not to be ignored. Hell, she packs so much power, she’ll never let you.” — PopMatters
“A powerhouse singer and killer live performer, delivers her brand of soul-rock ‘n’ roll with expressive verve and, with the new songs, great variety and style.” — Lincoln Journal Star
“With a voice reminiscent of Etta James, New Orleans-based Nikki Hill fronts a band soaked in driving, retro R&B…a sound that is equal parts raw energy and calculated homage.” — Utne Reader
“A revelation…a spunky rocker with a thrilling voice, charged stage persona and a killer band, which included her exciting guitarist-husband, Matt Hill.” — Downbeat
“Damned good…a hard-driving, back-alley LP of rock, rhythm and blues.” — Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
“Impassioned…fiery soul and R&B with some rock and roll swagger thrown in for good measure.” — AllMusic
“She has the chops to make a Lower East Side club feel like a Southern roadhouse.”
