The best kept secret in music


"heads up"

Hers is a voice that speaks for itself-and that's an understatement..."a voice that reportedly stunned someone walking by her last gig into exclaiming "i can't believe that's live"... - moutnain express, asheville nc

"Nikki Talley..."

Come see one of NC's best...pop-songstress Nikki Talley...who writes her own songs, goes from a whisper to a growl and back without flinching and hyptnotizes virtually everyone who sees her. Her lyrical sensiblity tends to lilt towards the Relationship Gone Horribly Awry end of the spectrum, but her feelin for the memorable melody is remarkable for someone whose talent is anything but canned. - the encore, wilmington, nc

"Nikki Talley"

Mountain Express called her a "powerful new talent with a voice and a vibe that put more shrinking singers to shame". She is a fluent guitarist and pianist, an intimate performer, and an eloquent lyricist. Nikki has released one album, "brother". 9pm - NXNE 2004 publication


'brother' was released in 2005 from a project grant she recieved from the NC Arts Council


Feeling a bit camera shy


Growing up listening to her mom play and singing folk songs, Nikki Talley has literally had it in her blood to be a performer and has been playing professionally since she was eighteen years old. Originally from North Carolina, this self taught guitarist and pianist has been captivating audiences with her energetic stage performance and her powerful voice. Strong emotional and seductive lyrics are her trademark. Nikki's songs are very unique and each one gives us a different look inside the artist. From pretty piano tunes to guitar-based acoustic rock songs, each is a part of her. Now at twenty-eight, Nikki has completed her first cd, "Brother," thanks to a grant she recieved from the local Arts Council. She has opened for such acts as Edwin McCain. She has also taken her talent to the stage with her androgynous portrayal of Yitzak, in the NC Stage Company's "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" in Asheville. It was her first ever stint as a professional actor. Nikki has recently relocated to the beautiful diverse city of Toronto where she hopes to continue her musical success. Her sophomore CD is slated to be released in early 2006.
