With credits that include work with artists such as, Prince, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Glee and most recently, special guest appearances on American Idol, bassist, singer and songwriter Nik West is anything more than just another pretty face.
Noted music journalist Alex Henderson (Billboard) sums West’s incredible talent up saying “Nik West is one 21st Century artist who isn’t lacking in the chops department."
"She is a young electric bassist who clearly knows her way around her instrument and plays like she has been inspired by the funky likes of Larry Graham, Louis Johnson (of Brothers Johnson fame) and Marcus Miller. Nik West is also a highly expressive singer. Known for impressively recording a cover of "Back In Black" by AC/DC, Nik shocked many rock fanatics and instantly became a new favorite of legend Steven Tyler. There are many great singers, but only a few have a voice with character that forces all who hear it to listen closely. "I was really surprised to know that Lenny Kravitz watched all of my videos and was impressed so much at my cover of Teen Town that he wanted to meet me in person", she says.
