Its fitting that the video to a tune about not letting go be set to ruminations of what was lost. Thats essentially what we get from 18 year old songwriter Nikki Lang in this Todd Robinson directed video.
Recording artist Nikki Lang started her musical career as a singer/songwriter at the age of 12. By 15, Nikki had appeared in clubs throughout Los Angeles both as a solo artist and with her band where she plays guitar. Today, as Nikki approaches 21, she has toured both nationally and internationally, been a featured artist on radio, TV, print and has caught the eye of music industry moguls as well as developed a loyal fan base. Nikki has graced notable venue stages small to mid-size (1500 capacity), such as the Roxy, Hotel Caf, Baked Potato, Cozys, House of Blues, the Mint, Genghis Cohen, the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Knitting Factory Concert Houses, (Reno, Spokane, Boise, Los Angeles,) Caf Was, the Coffee Gallery Backstage, the Union Room, and the Conga Room and venues through the United Kingdom and Canada. Nikki has played SXSW and at The Canadian Music and Monterey Jazz Festival. Inspired by the authenticity of singer songwriters Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morissette, and Lily Allen, Nikki sings of self-discovery and empowerment that can be read like a handbook for girls coming of age, while also appealing to adult audiences.
Nikki writes about lifes experiences, love, heartbreak, boys, and lessons, from the lens of a young woman entering her twenties. My inspiration comes from everything that is around me. All of my songs are from true experiences; Im an observant person and I try to take everything in and put it into my music, according to Lang. Nikkis songs are ageless. Added to the lyric is her voice and instrumentation, which rings out clarity and precision, and can cross genres, as well as generations. Songs such as My Sad Hero, Cute but Stupid, and Bros before Hos speak directly to her fans and offer up a tongue-in-cheek way out of what sometimes can appear bottomless.
