Nikki O'Neill - Bio

by Nikki O'Neill

about

Nikki O’Neill is a Los Angeles-based guitarist, singer and songwriter who grew up in Stockholm, Sweden.

Her 2017 EP, “Love Will Lead You Home” is a soul-rock and gospel album with six songs that focus on the healing power of love and of bringing people together.

The songs are written by herself and her lyric writing partner Paul Menser. One song, “I Will Cross Over,” is written by Americana artist Cody LePow, but re-arranged by Nikki into a jubilant, Curtis Mayfield-flavored gospel tune.

The album is produced by Ted Wulfers (663 Sound) and Nikki O'Neill.

As a guitarist, Nikki’s style is inspired by soul guitarists like Prince, Curtis Mayfield and Teenie Hodges, as well as Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana. Vocally, she has a sweet yet bluesy soprano, and her classic songwriting craft is fueled by soul and gospel.
