Demanding …..your attention and liberating your ears
Promising ….. Musical Salvation
Delivering …. Intense, Dirty, Edgy, Blues, Roots

She is wicked, outrageous, alluring, with the voice of a bad tempered Angel
He will engage you with his rock star demeanour, demanding your attention, singing like a demon, with a voice soaked in a barrel of whiskey

Biography

KNiKi’s vocal cords are packed with rustic roar, angelic pitch, and immense diversity. Infused with Mike Beale’s fluid yet dynamic guitar playing and a voice that’s delivered with explosive roars and intimate whispers …

Its like Candy for your ears …

Both artists have had success and multiple Festival appearances to their credit but it’s this new project that has both of them so excited.

The demand around the country has been overwhelming and a quick trip into the recording studio with legendary producer Adrian Stuckey (Split Enz/Neil Finn) has produced some amazing results.

The combination of Mike’s shredding blues vocal and explosive guitar, with KNiKi’s powerful, soulful and yet expressive voice has produce a tremendous new record titled …

Lyrics

Wax n Wane

Written By: Nicky Saleeba

Wax n Wane

Wax n wane to and fro
Feeling the rhythm yeah feeling the flow
Life’s ups and downs with them you go
Waxing and waning to and fro

So when you’re looking for your big rainbow
Just remember then that I love you so
I’ll blend and melt the way you want me to go
Cause babe you know I love you so

Round and round and round you go
Where it’s going to stop nobody shows you
You really make me feel like I oughta know
So this place babe maybe we should blow
You wax n wane

You know this life you can’t exchange
Things about it babe you can change
But as you sow remember so shall you reap
And this life you chose so shall you keep

So when you’re looking for your big rainbow
Just remember then that I love you so
Give me something babe
That don’t make me hollow
So then I won’t want to wax n wane tomorrow

Round and round and round you go
Where it’s going to stop nobody shows you
You really make me feel like I ought to know
So this place babe maybe we should blow

So when this ride takes you somewhere you don’t want to follow
Just remember then that I Love you so
Wax n Wane

Catch me

Written By: Nicky Saleeba


Catch me

Until the day that you were mine no conscience I did heed
Having fun and drinking was all I thought I’d need
But then you came into my life and caught me when I fell
From that day on you were always there when I was raising hell

Cause you’d Catch me when I’m falling pick me up and straighten my shirt
Catch me when I’m falling before I hit the dirt
Catch me when I’m falling cause babe you know it’s going to hurt
You know its going to hurt

It’s hard to curb a habit for something on which you feed
But I’m happy to give it all away if you say I’m all you need
But until that time you tell me you know where I’ll be
In the same old place I’ve always been waiting for you

Catch me when I’m falling pick me up and straighten my shirt
Catch me when I’m falling before I hit the dirt
Catch me when I’m falling cause babe you know it’s going to hurt
You know its going to hurt

You’d walk right over a sinner’s grin you’d straighten me up
And I’d say where you been Catch my tears kiss them away
tell me the things that I needed you to say
Oh baby oh yeah

Dead on

Written By: KNiKi & Mike Beale

Dead on

I touched u this morning
I touched u dead on
And for a moment u were there
Then I blinked and u were gone

Tried to find u again
But I got lost got undone
And 4 a moment only I had u
4 a moment only we belonged

Ch
If this is real then tell me so
If this is real then show me how it is you know

But I touched u this morning
u melted me for sure
But once again u got lost
Now I’m alone like before
