How Niecie fell into the blues is quite a story. During a gig with a rock band while on tour in Lincoln Nebraska, Niecie stepped outside on set break. As fortune would have it, she didn’t know that her set had been overheard by none other than bluesman extraordinaire Magic Slim, who also happened to be on break from his gig at the Zoo Bar. Slim approached Niecie and said, “Girl, you need to sing the blues,” and invited her to join him on stage at the Zoo Bar. The rest, as they say, is history.
Growing up in Detroit, whether it was rock, Motown, blues, or jazz,
if it had something Niecie could use, she latched onto it.
Moving on from Detroit to spread her wings, Niecie hopped over to neighboring Chicago,
then headed West to Las Vegas where she performed at some of the top hotels,
while she also popped over to LA to perform there also.
From there she headed to Boston, gigging up and down the I-95 trail from New York to Florida,
along with several European tours.
This early success inspired Niecie to focus more on her songwriting, which necessitated a trip to Nashville,
where she wasted little time and went straight into the studio where
she recorded/co-produced her debut CD, "Peace Of My Mind".
Niecie continued to record in Nashville releasing "Beyond The Surface", her sophomore release.
It landed on Top 50 Blues on Cashbox and Billboard, #8 on Top 50 Blues, and #23 on Top 50 Albums
(all genres) on APD Global charts.
Niecie later teamed up once again with Johnny Neel, from the Allman Brothers Band,
to produce "Wanted Woman". The CD debuting at #1 Top 50 (all genres) and #2 Top 50 Blues on APD Global Charts. It also found it’s way to #4 on the Roots Music Report charts Top 50 Blues.
“The Other Side” the follow up release was a Triple A radio release consisting of Niecie’s top hits.
The collection was adorned rave reviews and hit mainstream radio across the globe.
