           Nicki Kris - A North Carolina Grace (
 Ampslam Member placed on ballot of 56th Grammy Awards!
November 1, 2013

From the Smoky Mountains to the piedmont of the coastal plain, North Carolina has produced such musical greats such as Randy Travis, Charlies Daniels and Roberta Flack.
Please add to this list -  Ampslam Member Nicki Kris:
Nick Kris is a singer-songwriter from Apex North Carolina. Influenced by all genres of music including several of today's top artists plus top female rockers of the past such as Anne and Nancy Wilson, Natalie Merchant, and Pat Benatar, Nicki delivers a powerful sound that is 100% organic. Nicki's musical compositions are filled with thoughtful lyrics, beautiful melodies, and powerful vocals that fully engage the listener from beginning to end.
 Nicki began performing at a very young age and starting writing her own songs in high school. Her dream was to be a full-time musician. Unfortunately, due to various circumstances things didn't work out as planned and after graduating from college, Nicki made the toughest decision of her life - she gave up on being a recording artist. Fast forward 20 years and the now married mom of two decided it was time to pick up the dream.
Since 2010, Nicki has been busy writing, composing, and recording new material.  She released her first single in November of 2011, called 'My Christmas Wish' which garnished her quick acclaim and immediate internet rotation.nickikris
A remix will be available on November 16th, 2013. 
Nicki‘s highly anticipated debut album, I Come Alive was released this past July and has garnished her a placement on the Official Ballot for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards by The Recording Academy in several categories. Her album is availiable at CD Baby. Nicki's haunting ballad "Anything For You" was one of Ampslam's April 2003 Song Contest winners. 
Nicki is a self taught pianist who loves all genres of music from Linkin Park to Brad Paisley.
Go Nicki!
