Nik West was scheduled for last month, but technical difficulties kept us from connecting. I immediately made plans to bring her on, as this woman is incredible!
She learned to play the guitar from her dad at age 13. Born into a family of musicians, she and her siblings performed as teens. The left-handed phenom truly realized her calling when she discovered the bass in high school while listening to Michael Jackson's "You Wanna Be Startin Somethin".
While working on her album,Just in the Nik of Time, Nik was asked to join Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics fame) all-female Rock Fabulous Orchestra. Within days she was performing with Stewart in Los Angeles to capacity crowds.
A whirlwind of activities and sponsorship offers have kept Nik busy. How has it impacted her life, and what is on the horizon - I will sit with Nik and discuss that and more while we listen to music from Nik Of Time.
Then Darren Fallas joins me. Darren is a Memphian and a fine musician. he is also current president of the Memphis Blues Society.
After moving from Florida, Darren immediately began making noise in the clubs around town and has spent his time as president of the Blues Society building the membership and expanding its reach.
We will chat with Darren about his past and where he is heading in the future while listening to music - hopefully from his upcoming new album.
Come take a seat on The Couch and "Meet Musicians You Should Know"
