TODAY'S LIVE MUSIC SHOWCASE GUESTS = Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones!! Check out today's archives from 1pm - 2pm on 88.5FM...
Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, Nikki comes by her Deep South soul honestly. Her musical roots began while singing in gospel choirs at church as a child. A stint living in nearby college town Chapel Hill introduced her to many different styles of music and the awareness of music (and more importantly, unique and non-mainstream music) as a possible career. After pairing up with her guitar-playing husband Matt Hill, they promptly relocated to St. Louis, Missouri, where they have established themselves as roots rock and roll powerhouses!
Hill and her band are climbing to the top of the roots music scene step by step and leaving jaws on the floor along the way. With a no-filter energy, they take all the flavors of American roots music and deliver a sound that reminds us all why we love rock and roll. Nikki's gritty and raw voice with dynamics that hint of a long-standing career, driving rhythm guitar, and a tight rhythm section take what we music lovers admire about our roots legends, and then push them to the next level that the world of rock and roll has been waiting for.
Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones
Eastside Detroit native Doug Deming, now hailing from Florida's Gulf Coast, has garnered widespread attention for his deft guitar work and memorable songwriting. With a nod to the likes of T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian, as well as Luther Tucker and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Doug leaves his own mark whether swingin' on the big jazz box, or playing straight up blues on the solid body Fender guitar. While playing the local Detroit scene in the early 90's, major players began to take notice, and Doug spent much of the following years backing many of the day's top touring blues artists, including Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson, legendary Louisiana swamp bluesman Lazy Lester, Gary Primich, Chicago greats Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones, and A.C. Reed, as well as Detroit's own Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams. http://reverbnation.com/dougdemingthejeweltones
