Giant Step presents Nikka Costa at the gorgeous Florida Room at DELANO.
Growing up as legendary producer Don Costa’s (Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra) daughter, Nikka Costa broke on the scene in the early 2000’s with an intuitive sensibility for the soulful sound that has kept her place as a forerunner among the new breed of soul singers. She toured with Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay and Beck, recorded with Mark Ronson, was nominated for an MTV Music Award and had hit singles in Europe. Known for her dynamic and energetic live performances, Nikka’s voice and presence has often been compared with Janis Joplin, Chaka Khan and Sly Stone.
Nikka will release Pebble to a Pearl on Oct 14th through her own Go Funk Yourself Records in conjunction with Stax Records. With this record, Nikka comes into her most empowering work of genre-defying genius yet, a quintessential collection of soul, blues, funk & pop infused tracks which marks Nikka’s triumphant return onto the scene. The album blends sounds and textures in an undefined concoction that speaks as profoundly to a discriminating musician’s ear as it does to the casual listener.
