Nikki Grier was born and raised in Los Angeles. At only 12 years old, she signed with Lou Adler of the Legendary 60’s band “Mamas and Papas”, and she has rode the euphoric highs and painful lows of the music industry roller coaster ever since. She has sung background vocals for Barbara Streisand, Michael Jackson, and Brandy just to name an amazing few.
In 2006 she was invited by a former Aftermath A&R to come and write at a session with his then boss Dr. Dre. That one session turned into Nikki Grier signing with Dr. Dre’s publishing company “Hard Working Black Folks”. Since then Nikki Grier has co-written “Fire” on 50 Cent’s “Curtis” album and wrote and/or sung LEAD and background vocals for Dr. Dre, Busta Rhymes, Stat Quo, Bishop Lamont, Raphael Saadiq, Ginuwine, and countless others.
Most recently Nikki Grier was called to work with Eminem. As a result : “Cold Wind Blows” on his “Recovery” album 2010.
Nikki Grier’s music is the perfect combination of sex and soul. She combines a perfect mixture of hip-hop and soul and delivers it with an element of sensuality. Check out her brand new Mixtape/EP “Soulgasm Vol. 6”
