American Lebanese, bicentennial born and bred in the Washington, D.C. metro area, Nikki's first real life dream at age seven was to be conductress of an orchestra. Not aiming quite that aristocratically high she learned to love the art of music through the likes of then-rising U2, Sting, Sarah McLachlan and especially guitar driven influences the Indigo Girls. Raised in the Christian church, from maronite catholic to protestant, she garnered a deep appreciation for classical, sacred and spiritual musics which would bring one closer to an experience of God, as well being shaped early on by the voices of Amy Grant, Rich Mullins and Olivia Newton-John, little-Nikki's first and favorite live performer as seen from the greens of Wolf Trap theater in Virginia.

Searching for her own revelation of truth however and shooting out to St. Louis, Missouri to attend Washington University, Nikki found what she was looking for in the life and music of Keith Green and later, prophetic-style pioneers JoAnne McFatter, David Ruis, Kevin Prosch and Morning Star as well as more prominent Phil Keaggy, Delirious, Darlene Zschech of Hillsong Music Australia and Misty Edwards and team at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, all still heavy influences. Early Caedmon's Call is worth a mention, for their mid-nineties, refreshing acoustic canvases.

Today, after over a decade of pursuing health and reality Nikki is returning to the States from studying abroad in Sydney, Australia. From her days in St. Louis, being honored to participate in the compilation cd entitled, 'SUITE 16', a local collection showcasing women singer-songwriters, to the recording of her EP in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with long-time friends and producers at Skywork, Nikki's repertoire of over 200 original songs has matured over 14 years into a haberdashery of poetry, complexity, philosophy and simply beautiful love songs. Though prolific as a writer her intense spiritual focus has closeted most of her potential, hence the title of her home grown EP, OUT OF THE SHADOWS.

You will find Nikki's strengths to be her lyrical substance which is both comforting and costly, followed by strong, emotive, melodic interpretation as perhaps most clearly evidenced in her hallmark local-radio debut, 'The Lines Round Your Eyes,' written as a love song for her dear friend and mentor, Anni. Nikki's writing begs more instrumentation to articulate her range of emotional intentions, but her stage presence can stand the rawest of venues.

Laughing, crying, uplifting or lullabying, Nikki Nahra will cause you to stop, cause you to feel, cause you to think, and cause you to rest...if you open your heart and give her a chance.
