nikki chainz

Nikki Chainz is an emerging independent recording artist with a genre-defying sound. The Georgia native dropped her debut album in 2009. She is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and pianist with a deep catalog of originals and covers.

Citing the influence of artists like Evanescence, Lana Del Rey, and Imogen Heap, Nikki Chainz creates a unique blend of experimental electronic, dark pop, and classical-infused rock & roll. The lifelong musician first sat down at the piano at just 7 years old, encouraged by her musical grandfather. His passion remains an inspiration to her today.

“Rusty Cage” is the brand new single from Nikki Chainz, released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 17, 2024.  The track is a cover of the Soundgraden hit from their monumental 1991 album Badmotorfinger. Nikki’s faithful rendition opens on the song’s iconic dissonant guitar lick before the beat lands on a powerful riff-rock groove. On the mic, Nikki handles the late-great Chris Cornell formidable range with ease in this dark yet empowering tale of liberation from oppression.
