Talley headin to Telluride!

Nikki is one of ten finalists in the Telluride Troubadour Contest! We didn’t totally plan on making the trek back across to Colorado this year but can’t turn down this opportunity! Having never played Colorado before, we’re very excited to be making a splash as a finalist.

Thanksgiving shows!

After a fantastic time at the Frank Brown Fest down at the legendary Flora-Bama, we are sneaking back up to North Carolina to play a few shows for the last time this year during Thanksgiving week! We would love to see our hometown pals out at Hendersonville’s Sanctuary Brewing Company the day before Thanksgiving! Then after you’ve had your fill of turkey & family bring em on down to The French Broad Brewery in Asheville Friday the 27th!

Life after Magfest











Magnolia Fest 2015 was definitely one for the books. We had some great sets, made new fans, saw old friends & being on such an amazing lineup was just awesome. It’s a very tough transition to leave a place that has been full of so many memories! Alas! The road calls ever on.

We also got a nice little bump from No Depression this month. They had these kind words to say about our new album:

“Nikki Talley – Out from the Harbor: I know, there are seven million singer-songwriters out on the road these days, but this woman delivers the type of North Carolina country you wished your local radio station played.”

We have a few more shows back in NC before turning Blue Bell hard south for winter. Please check out our ever changing tour dates. Stay safe out there friends!

“Nikki Talley has traveled a lot of miles these past few years and called numerous places home, but we in Western NC still want to claim her as one of the area’s finest singer-songwriters. Always genuine and down to earth, she and her partner Jason Sharp deliver her latest songs on Out From the Harbor in a beautiful, laid-back style — just in time for a beautiful, laid-back summer. “

– Martin Anderson

WNCW Music Director & Host
