Niki J Crawford Live at Mrs. Fish (Free Show)
Soul / Funk / R&B / Rock
"One of the biggest and hidden gems were the artists performing on the JAZZTYME Stage. If you have not heard of the name Niki J Crawford, you will soon.
Hearing Crawford is like listening to a hurricane blending its thunderous roar into a serene rose petal. Crawford is like an explosion of perfect harmony with lasting vocal power. She is the real deal. Listening to her will make you stop in your tracks. It won’t be too long before Crawford steps out from the shadows into the national spotlight.
She may even be the headliner of the Long Beach Jazz Festival someday. That would be a win-win for both the city of Long Beach and for the festival." - Dennis J. Freeman 8/15/2016

"Niki J. Crawford’s first EP titled the Genesis Block is carried by soaring and multi-layered vocals, her most fully realized work to date that is finely attuned and anchored by the type of rhythmic instrumentation that allows her range and depth to be heard in its finest hour. The songs are rooted in unabashed free expression with profoundly selfless lyrical compositions usually reserved for the most mature of songwriters. Each track teeters on themes of romance and conceit while remaining heartfully optimistic throughout the final verse".
Niki J Crawford and her band bring the heat with a high energy soul get down. After a short break following her latest tour, where she performed more than 200 shows worldwide, Niki is back with a new band, new songs and a new show.

The singer/song writer crafts poignant lyrics and creates music with a Soul-Funk-R&B sound that you can feel. Niki has been singing since she was 6-years-old. From her roots as the lead soloist in her hometown church choir to the recently completed touring, her talent has continued to evolve as one of the strongest voices in music.
Niki and the band have shared the stage and have played with Carlos Santana, Snoop Dogg, Al Green, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Aaron Neville, Macy Grey, Booker T Jones, The Roots, Galactic and Orgone just to name a few of the legendary performers who have sought out her talent. She has performed on various late-night TV shows such as Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and Saturday Night Live and lit up festival stages across the world like Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Montreal Jazz, Summer Camp, Bear Creek, All Good, High Sierra and Jam Cruise.
