I'm in the November 2019 issue of Guitar Player Magazine, interviewed by the great blues artist Sue Foley.
A new album is in the making and it will be out this fall. One of the songs was tracked at Royal Studios in Memphis.
In mid-October, I'll launch my new guitar lesson channel on TrueFire.com: "Nikki O'Neill's Twang, Soul & Rock 'n' Roll." More info on that soon!
We had a great time performing at the 2019 Americanafest as part of the California Country showcases. We also opened for Southern Avenue at Hotel Cafe, which was great fun!
Voyage LA Magazine interviewed me about my multicultural upbringing; how I got into music and when I was a writer in NYC, interviewing Robert Plant and Neil Young.
And Tribe LA Magazine interviewed me about my creative process; style; favorite places in LA and my audition for Courtney Love...
A very special THANK YOU to “The Big Fat Wide Americana Hour” radio show, who listed “When Do I Tell Him” as one of the Best Songs of 2018, and the 100 Americana/Blues stations who played my songs last year, including “The Governor’s Mansion” (New Orleans); “Blues Corner” (UK); “At the Crossroads” (Canada) and many more.
Come on out to the shows and hear some of the new songs!
