Nikki Lemire spins her life around her music, making space to perform in multiple fields and genres. Her songwriting features her expressive vocals over layered and hypnotic accompaniment. She dives deep into moving themes surrounding motherhood, love and loss. Employing modern harp techniques, loop and electric pedals, her songs sit somewhere between the old folk bedrock of Joan Baez, the musical innovation of Joni Mitchell, and the influential pop stylings of Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift. Nikki artfully shapes the music to her words, creating a sound that refuses to adhere to any one particular genre, somehow feeling old and new at the same time.

Nikki Lemire has earned accolades from fans and critics alike, setting the stage for the release of her highly anticipated solo debut single “Mend It” and subsequent single “Little”. Furthermore, her song “Let the Rain Come In” wowed audiences and secured second-place at the Duluth Dylan Fest 2023 Songwriting Competition, solidifying her place as a promising artist in the industry. Her triumphant solo performance at Lakewood Cemetery in June 2023 will be released in its entirety as a live album on June 1st 2024 with accompanying live video performance produced by Feature Foundations Videography.

Nikki Lemire’s delicate and silky smooth voice pairs perfectly with the harp. Her solo songs warmed up the Aster Cafe last night while building a new appreciation for the harp. ”

[Mend It] is a dreamy, simple, and beautiful song led by the sounds of her harp.”
