Nikki Talley on WNCW Today at 11AM

Attention all music fans...

According to her website, local singer/songwriter Nikki Talley is playing live from Studio B on WNCW today (Friday July 20) at 11AM. Sorry for the short notice!

Here's how Mtn. X describes her:

Local songstress Nikki Talley suffers from a rare condition -- an excess of talent. She's a stunning songwriter, combining haunting, richly symbolic lyrics about passion and love with a mastery of both guitar and piano; her music definitively sets a mood. Imagine a fusion of Tori Amos' passionate lyrical drive and Norah Jones' masterful spirit, plus an innate fearlessness that lets Talley crisscross genres from folk to bluesy rock to metal, and even take a lead role in last summer's Asheville production of the gender-bending "rock opera" Hedwig and the Angry Itch. She's not just good; she's that good.

-- Steve Shanafelt

Couldn't agree with Steve more. She's great. Check her out on WNCW (FM 88.7 on the dial, also streaming from the website).
