Jessika Nickel was born and raised in a small Nebraska town. From a very young age she had a love for writing poetry and dreamed of being on stage. By her early twenties she had a full-on passion for writing and singing country music. She has a special appreciation for up and coming country artists and Red Dirt Music. Her influences include country music legends such as Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, combined with the edge of today's country music super stars, Eric Church & Miranda Lambert. Her classic sound, her sassy lyrical style and the desire to tell her life's story through her music has inspired dozens of original country songs. Her frequent trips to Nashville further ignited her fire for the stage. She’s been a guest of many local country music bands and now spends her time writing, recording and playing shows locally. She has opened for Emerson Drive, Casey James, Brett Eldredge, John Corbett, Casey Donahew Band, and a host of incredible local original bands! She has no greater love than country music. She just wrapped up her first EP, produced by Jason Wyatt, formerly of "The Lost Trailers" in Nashville, Tennessee and is available on iTunes, Spotify, etc! She has been more than blessed to be able to work with an amazing, successful team of writers here in our very own state! Her new music would not be where it is without them! Watch for local shows and make a point to come see what the fuss is all about. Wherever she sings, she earns fans. And each time, they leave having a bit more of true country music in their souls.
