Blind Date: Nikki Jean

Friday, July 15, 2011

In our next installment of Soundcheck's "Blind Date" series, we’ve set you, the listener, up on a radio date with the singer and songwriter Nikki Jean. She’s already toured alongside the likes of Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West. And she co-wrote her infectious debut album “Pennies In a Jar” with luminaries like Burt Bacharach, Carole King and Bob Dylan. That’s right, her debut. She’ll join us for a Soundcheck Blind Date, and attempt to win over the hearts—and ears—of our listeners.

People want to hear her because she's talented, and brilliant, and innovative. A genius writer, singer, pianist. I challenge you to name one artist in the last 20 years who has been able to put out a debut album this polished.
It's one thing to be well connected, but even so, you still have to be able to deliver once you walk into a songwriting situation like this. You don't get to be well connected being untalented. These artist are the cream of the crop. Legends, and I'm sure there's no shortage of pretty girls in any of their circles. This is her first record, and it's a refreshing, and wonderful, sample free listening experience. Grow your ears up folks, it's 2011. For real.

I feel like the Grinch, always coming on here to grouse about the latest half-baked performer. Clearly Nikki Jean is well-connected in order to have snared herself partnerships with so many famous songwriters. But from her derivative, mediocre singing and the "meh" songs themselves, I couldn't figure out why. Then I saw her picture and decided maybe it's because she's so pretty. But there has to be more. She must know some important people. And of course, she's very ambitious, which is critical in the biz. I wish her all the best, but I heard nothing today that would inspire me to listen again. Blue Meanie. Grinch. I know.

She sings well. But, what is the interest here?

Why would one want to hear her?
