“OF THE BURGEONING TALENT RISING UP IN WINEHOUSE’S WAKE, WE HAVE OUR EYE ON… NIKKI YANOFSKY” – InStyle
With tracks like “Young Love” and “When I’m Drunk” – each song on Solid Gold is imbued with its own personality and chronicles Nikki’s relationship with her longtime boyfriend, broaching the topic of love through a spectrum of themes and sounds, her emotions as in‐the‐moment as possible – Nikki is finally getting personal! Recorded over the course of a year in Montreal and New York City, the music captures her technical prowess and her vocal soulfulness – much of that she credits to her collaborator Wyclef Jean, who co‐produced the album with her. “The first time I worked with him, I was 13,” she says of Wyclef, whom she met at a charity event, “He got me, not just my voice. After I worked on the track ‘Me, Myself, and I’ with him, I knew I had to do the whole album with him.”
Nikki has released two studio albums, 2014’s Little Secret (executive‐produced by Quincy Jones) and four years earlier, her self‐titled album (produced by the legendary Phil Ramone) which went platinum in Canada. She has performed with Quincy Jones, Drake, Justin Bieber (amongst many others) and has garnered over 12 million streams on Spotify. Nikki, who’s raised more than $10 million for charities, continues to devote herself to causes such as The Children’s Wish Foundation, The Montreal Children’s Hospital, and MusiCounts. She is planning on releasing a new full length album in spring 2017.
