    Niki J. Crawford

    Funk

    "Niki J. Crawford’s first EP titled the Genesis Block is carried by soaring and multi-layered vocals, her most fully realized work to date that is finely attuned and anchored by the type of rhythmic instrumentation that allows her range and depth to be heard in its finest hour. The songs are rooted in unabashed free expression with profoundly selfless lyrical compositions usually reserved for the most mature of songwriters. Each track teeters on themes of romance and conceit while remaining heartfully optimistic throughout the final verse".
    Niki J Crawford and her band bring the heat with a high energy soul get down. After a short break following her latest tour, where she performed more than 200 shows worldwide, Niki is back with a new band, new songs and a new show. Niki is an American Recording Artist/Songwriter from the small country town of Springhill, Louisiana with a powerful, unforgettable and melodic voice. The singer/song writer crafts poignant lyrics and creates music with a Soul-Funk-R&B sound that you can feel. Niki has been singing since she was 6-years-old. From her roots as the lead soloist in her hometown church choir to the recently completed touring, her talent has continued to evolve as one of the strongest voices in music. 
    Niki and the band have shared the stage and have played with Carlos Santana, Snoop Dogg, Al Green, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Aaron Neville, Macy Grey, Booker T Jones, The Roots, Chicano Batman, Galactic and Orgone just to name a few of the legendary performers who have sought out her talent. She has performed on various late-night TV shows such as Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and Saturday Night Live and lit up festival stages across the world like Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Montreal Jazz, Summer Camp, Bear Creek, All Good, High Sierra and Jam Cruise. 

    A multi-talented artist, Niki J. Crawford not only sings but is also a talented and growing actress. She just finished shooting an upcoming film “Revival” based on the gospel of John and "Mr. Sophistication,” in which she plays herself-a popstar alongside Tatum O' Neal, Harry Lenix and former Lakers star, Rick Fox. 
    Niki can also be seen in Taylor Hackford’s "Love Ranch,” which was released worldwide in 2010. 
    Other credits include co-starring alongside Ginnifer Goodwin and Kevin Connolly in the hit comedy, "He’s Just Not That Into You"; “American Dreamz”, as well as roles in “The Tenants,” “Seeing Other People,” "Gridiron Gang,” "Miss March", and “Killer Diller,” which she received a “Two Thumbs Up” for her performance and was told “She is The REAL American Idol” from Ebert & Roper. 
    Niki has also guest-starred on television shows “Ally McBeal,” “Wanted,” and was a “Scarlett” series regular; she has guested on hit productions “Rent” (Shubert Theater), and “Behind Closed Doors” (Tyler Perry Prod./T.D Jakes Prod.); and is also currently featured singing in the national Subway Campaign.
    Niki continues to write and perform leading with her trademark aura of unconditional love and sensuality that fuels a vocal passion with the effortless ease of a veteran performer. Niki has said her goal is to make feel-good music and great films with an energy that inspires and alleviates negativity.

    TRACORUM

    Blues

    Tracorum is a Rock and Soul band from San Francisco,CA. The bands musical journeying is a blend of Southern R&B and Roots, Rock, Americana. A passion for rhythmic diversity adds elements of Funk, Latin-Caribbean and Gospel stomp to their unique sound. Storytelling steeped in rich vocal harmonies and urban legend is the vehicle on which this quartet travels the known universe.

    "At the end of the day we are a Rock n Roll band in the truest sense" says piano/vocalist Fletcher Nielsen "We thrive on a diversity of sound because it's an honest representation of where we collectively come from as people. In one show we might musically travel to New Orleans, the Appalachian mountains, Delta blues, Church, Psychedelic 60's, Nashville, Detroit,Jamaica and end up with some good old southern Rock. It works for us because every song or style we play is unified by our love of the music and I think you can hear that in every energy charged performance we deliver.

    The Band:

    Jeremy Hoenig: drums/percussion

    Mark Murphy: bass Jules Leyhe: guitars/vocals

    Fletcher Nielsen: piano/keys/organ/vocals/rhythm guitar/harmonica

    The band has released three studio albums: 2006 - "Rock n Soul"

    2011 - "The Lesson" Added and in rotation on over 130 College/AAA Radio Stations. Charted top 25 CMA for 10+ weeks

    The song Break the Chains was a 2011 IMA award finalist.

    2013- "Tricked" released on 1/8/13 and already added and in rotation on over 225 College/AAA Radio Stations.

    Tracorum has shared the stage with great acts such as Robert Randolph Family Band, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Ivan Neville Dumpstafunk, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Umphreys McGee, Bill Kreutzmann's (Grateful Dead) 7 Walkers, Mickey Hart Band (Grateful Dead), Anders Osborne, Leo Neocentelli and played great events like Sundance Film Festival, New Orleans Jazz Festival, SXSW, High Sierra Music Festival, Hangtown Halloween Music Festival, 4 Peak Music Festival, and many more.
