"She's a baaaaad mama jama!... lighting licks and thunder thumbs..."

Quincy Jones

A woman playing the bass and fronting the band, that’s never really happened before in the pop world!
Nik West, singer, songwriter and one of the best electric Bass players in the industry, is one of the freshest and most talented artists of today. Nik has been tearing it up on stages alongside some of the biggest acts in recent music history. 

Nik West sports an eye-poppingly colorful Mohawk shaped like a bass clef and seduces the viewer with her sexy glamour. But when she grabs her electric bass and starts churning out delicious funk grooves, it’s obvious that it’s her outsized musical talent and endless energy that have made her one of the biggest up-and-comers on the R&B side of town. Explosive stage presence isn't enough to describe the way Nik West moves, wows, and shocks crowds everywhere. "She is a real life gumby on stage, all while singing, dancing, and slapping the hell out of her bass guitar!“ Called “the female Lenny Kravitz” by Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Nik combines serious bass chops and highly expressive singing with outrageous onstage panache – not surprising considering she spent time as Prince’s protégé! 

June 2016 Nik joined Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, and Slash as a cover girl for American Musical Magazine. She has appeared on the covers of virtually every bass magazine and has been featured in numerous publications for Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, Rollingstone, Afropunk and more. But with credits that include work for artists such as, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Prince, Glee, and more, bassist, singer, and songwriter Nik West is anything more than just another pretty face.
