Nikki Stella is a Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter. She first caught the musical 'bug' at an early age, when her Dad brought her along to his rock band rehearsals and performances. At the age of 7, given the choice between a drum kit or a bicycle, she chose the drum kit... and so her deep passion for music began.
She started playing in bands at age 13, as both a drummer and lead vocalist. She continued playing in various bands through her college years. At 18 she picked up a guitar so that she could branch out into more serious songwriting. She has been fine tuning her song writing skills ever since. Her ability to couple a strong musical hook with compelling lyrics results in a finely crafted song. Her musical influences range widely from Rock to Country to R&B. All this variety lends unique flavor and mass appeal to her style.
