Rocking out the Blues Fest stage at 4 p.m., we have the incredible international star, Nikki Hill. Hill and her band have been touring extensively following their independent 2015 release ‘Heavy Hearts Hard Fists’. With a no-filter energy and explosive live show, they deliver a sound like no other, and have garnered fans from America all the way to Europe and Australia. Born and bred in North Carolina, Nikki settled in New Orleans, where she continued to develop her sound. Influenced by her husband and now guitar player Matt, she got on stage and shared her R&B, soul-drenched talent with the world. Nikki’s unique voice—with raw rock and soul dynamics mixed with the strength, passion, and honesty of blues shouters of the past—steers the driving guitar and a tight rhythm section to create a breath of fresh air with their fast forward approach to American roots music.
