The 9:13 Buzz with Justin Jacobs review

No Rating

In the post-Amy Winehouse era, we have no shortage of modern soul singers who can belt out a tune and sink into a groove. But few of them really try rocking. Nikki Hill is a North Carolina singer who’s as influenced by Otis Redding as she is AC/DC, and her album “Heavy Hearts, Hard Fists” rocks as much as it swings. Hill’s voice is powerful and bluesy but she manages to convey heartache through the squall of guitars — and the album’s title track cranks the guitars all the way up. Watch out for Nikki Hill. If there’s any justice in the world, you’ll be hearing more from her.
