Beyond isolation – Niksta
Niksta performs on the edge of country, mixing rock and pop-influenced tracks with alt-country. As a singer-songwriter, Nicole Keipert aka Niksta, won’t be kept in any musical box, and seamlessly drifts through the genres as the songs dictate, from the rocky sounds Contagious Love and Shoot Me Now to the carefree, easy listening feel of My Heart. This is an album written by an obviously strong woman who even sings about how she doesn’t want to play it safe because she’s a rebel, and this reflected in this collection of 10 songs on Beyond Isolation. Niksta is not only a singer-songwriter, but also plays guitar, drums, piano and even French horn – we may get to hear this on future albums. From the rocking guitars to the alt-country sound of these tracks, Beyond Isolation is an album for those who don’t want their music put in a box of any particular genre, and their country more on the indie music put in a box of any particular genre, and their country more on the indie rock side.
