Biography

Nikki Forova is a Russian American singer-songwriter who built a following in the west of United States and Europe. She is known for her unique voice, whimsical, quirky and philosophical lyrics and powerful productions with influences of singer-songwriter, alternative and cinematic music.

She was born in USSR to a family of accomplished theater actors. Being an average poor family, they couldn't afford the piano, so Nikki went to local kindergartens after hours to practice classical piano. When she was seven a friend gifted her a black upright piano. After the wall fell, Nikki moved to the US. She received recognition through performances in the Los Angeles singer-songwriter scene and her MTV appearance doing a duet with Vanessa Calrton, of a hit song “A Thousand Miles.”

Shortly after, Nikki co-produced her first indie album “Revving Wings.” It became a colorful and powerful musical work, a cross-over between eclectic singer-songwriter and rock genres. Upon its release in 2010, Nikki launched into a two year tour to Europe and West of US. Received with emotions, tears and smiles: personal stories would pour out of fans during the after-the-show hang outs.

Mikey Jayy, “All Indie Magazine” founder says, "I'm in constant search for artists that grasp that inner feeling of intense emotion and her voice and music inspire exactly that. Songs like 'After Today' and 'Little Green Piece of Life' capture such intense feelings of incredible beauty, that it feels like I'm falling in love. Music like this is very powerful.” “Revving Wings” was remixed and remastered with Simon Heyworth (Erasure, Imogen Heap, Depeche Mode) and re-released in July 2012.

New album “White Dandelions” is in production. So ever warm, playful, quirky and intimate. She's teaming up with two London producers: Andreas Olsson known for his productions of Mary J. Blige, Jason Mraz, Train and Patrick Wood who produced Youtube wonder, Emily and The Woods. CD release and US Tour is scheduled in MARCH 2013 and European tour with an American Idol, Shaun Canon, is scheduled in May 2013.

“Nikki Forova released her EP “Revving Wings” in July 2012, earning comparisons to the likes of Imogen Heap and Tori Amos. At her fingertips, the Arcade Fire anthem, [newly released single “Tunnels”], becomes a lovely piano ballad.
