Raised in the church choir and steeped in R&B and garage rock rumble, Nikki Hill is a spitfire with the soul-drenched voice of Etta James and the tattooed, beehived-hair aura of Cramps’ guitarist Poison Ivy. Just a couple years ago, Nikki Hill was a bartender with an affinity for punk and a deep love for classic R&B. Soon, she stepped out from behind the bar and onto the stage. The response has been ecstatic, and now the band tours the globe relentlessly, stunning audiences with their muscular sound, Matt’s volcanic leads, and, of course, Nikki’s inimitable charisma. Praise for Nikki Hill: “The fast-rising, hard-charging, 20-something, North Carolina born-and-bred singer Nikki Hill has more than earned her evocative “Southern Fireball” moniker. “ — LA Weekly “If Tina Turner and Little Richard had a daughter and raised her with the help of uncles James Brown and Chuck Berry, she’d be like Nikki Hill.” — Minneapolis Star Tribune PETUNIA & THE VIPERS Formed December 2007, after Petunia relocated to Vancouver, the group really got going in 2009 with touring which saw them reaching Los Angeles. Since then the band has played everywhere across western Canada, the the US Pacific Coast, twice through the United Kingdom, and in Texas for SXSW. Petunia also plays solo across Canada and the US throughout the year. The Petunia & The Vipers sound is a sumptuous collection that's earned rave reviews. With rockabilly, country swing, sweet melodic ballads, and just the right amount of darkness and grit, it leaves you wanting more as soon as they are finished.
