Bio

“Look at the world with wondrous eyes, love with a young heart, think with a child like mind, and live with a free spirited soul”, sipping tea from a rustic mug, she answers the question of how life should be lived. She pauses, gazes to the yonder, connecting with her thoughts on a much deeper level. This display of an honest nature is forever evident through her sincere lyrical style and melodic deliverance.

Nikita Rolleston’s up and coming EP - Kaleidoscope, reflects colours of tales, wanderlust, love, life, and euphoric experiences. Connecting with the audience on a much more intimate level through her passion for music, writing, poetry and life, makes listening to her powerful sound, soothing and immensely engaging.

“I don't just want to create songs that people bop their heads to, that people only hear. I want people to listen, to feel, to relate to, to understand, and for the music to touch every single person in its own unique way. I want my music to change lives, to make lives, and to create a feeling of existence. I want it to connect with every soul in an intimate nature. I want the message to be heard and interpreted in their own unique way. I want everyone to be a part of my musical creations, to feel like it's their own poetry of the soul and for the world to be able to connect with every single lyric”

Recorded and Produced by Tigertown's, Chris Collins, and Co-Produced by singer/songwriter and drummer, Charity Turner, in a quaint two bedroom apartment and house with a nostalgic basement studio both in her local beach town, she has managed to deliver a piece of art that is yet to be heard by the music lovers of the world. Her humble presence, beautiful soul, and lyrical tales of life, will no doubt keep old fans powerfully content and invite new ones along this graceful melodic path.

The strength of her voice - and the build within the song - won me over pretty quickly.
