Nik West Releases "Just In The Nik Of Time" on Tuesday September 15th, 2015

Recording artist Nik West is releasing "Just In The Nik Of Time" through The Spectra Music Group on Tuesday, September 15th, 2015.

"The Female Lenny Kravitz"- Dave Stewart (Eurythmics)

"Holy Funkadelic, I felt this girl's energy the first time I was in her presence, I knew there was something special about her with that hair" - Steven Tyler

"Great stage presence" - Prince

"She wears a colorful mohawk shaped like a bass clef on her head" - Soul Train

With credits that include work with artists such as, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Prince, John Mayer, Glee and most recently, special guest appearances on American Idol, bassist, singer and songwriter Nik West is anything more than just another pretty face. Noted music journalist Alex Henderson (Billboard) sums West’s incredible talent up saying “Nik West is one 21st Century artist who isn’t lacking in the chops department."

"She is a 25 year old electric bassist who clearly knows her way around her instrument and plays like she has been inspired by the funky likes of Larry Graham, Louis Johnson (of Brothers Johnson fame) and Marcus Miller. Nik West is also a highly expressive singer. Known for impressively recording a cover of "Back In Black" by AC/DC, Nik shocked many rock fanatics and instantly became a new favorite of legend Steven Tyler. There are many great singers, but only a few have a voice with character that forces all who hear it to listen closely. "I was really surprised to know that Lenny Kravitz watched all of my videos and was impressed so much at my cover of Teen Town that he wanted to meet me in person", she says.

West’s musical journey began in her hometown, Phoenix, AZ. It was there that her father —an accomplished guitarist—taught her how to play the rhythm guitar when she was just 13-years-old. Growing up in a household filled with music and creativity, West’s family includes her sisters (keys, drums, violin, and guitar) who were her first band and singing act, and an older brother, a few of which she still records with today. 

Though she began her musical journey playing the guitar, the left-handed phenom truly realized her calling when she discovered the bass in high school while listening to Michael Jackson's "You Wanna Be Startin Somethin". After discovering the instrument there was no stopping her.

While working on her new album “Just In The Nik Of Time”, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics also became acquainted with West’s work, fell in love with her soulful voice, and reached out to her to work with him on several projects. Within days she was performing with Stewart in Los Angeles to capacity crowds. Days later she also began working with Stewart and Grammy-winning songwriter/producer Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette, George Strait, and Michael Jackson) on a recording project. Since then, Nik has accompanied, recorded with, and jammed with a few well-known artists, such as Prince, John Mayer, Marcus Miller, and more. Her talent has even peaked the attention of Lenny Kravitz, Steven Tyler, and Flea (RHCP). “Nik West is definitely bringing back the funk groovement and I love everything about what she stands for!” -Bootsy Collins

Before gracing the covers of Bass Musician Magazine and being featured in Bass Player, Bass Quarterly Germany, and Bass Magazine Japan, West’s skill was noticed early on by legendary music company, Fender. They took notice of her standout voice and funky bass playing and offered her an artist endorsement. She was also one of the first musicians to play Fender’s first 6-string bass. West’s string of accomplishments continued as she was selected to endorse SWR’s Black Beauty Amplifiers. The photo of West that is featured in the SWR advertisement was hand selected by legendary bassist Marcus Miller. “Any time someone is called by Prince AND the Musical Director for Michael Jackson (Michael Bearden), you just know they have to be something special!”

Nik is the face of a brand new line of basses called the Dimension Bass that Fender came out with in 2013. She was a partner in helping to develop the bass. She is also the brainchild behind the Queen of Strings Competition, discovering, inspiring and teaching young women self esteem and discipline on an instrument. To find out more, visit

"Just In The Nik Of Time" will be available for worldwide digital download on Tuesday, September 15th, 2015.
