Nikki Shannon - Live Video from Show @ National Underground, NYC 10/10/08

Nikki Shannon played about an hour set at The National Underground last Friday night to an enthusiastic crowd and full room. I taped part of the show and clip below contains the songs "Had It With You" (non-LP cut; unsure that this is the 'real' title) and "Chocolate & Wine".

Nikki has been playing around town in support of her debut CD, Too Few, which was released earlier this year. The new disc is available through all of the major online digital music sites (itunes, Rhapsody, Napster, E-Music, and Amazon) and physical copies of the disc can be ordered through Nikki's MySpace page.

Steve Matteo (contributor for the New York Times, LA Times, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, Spin, and Details) described Too Few as "just the right touches of harmonies and subtle instrumental accentuations, may at first recall such great talents as Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynde, and Joni Mitchell vocally and in her songwriting...yet in the end Nikki has a sound all her own." In addition to earning strong reviews from the critics, Nikki has had songs featured on "Six Degrees" (ABC TV) and she announced at last Friday's show that the song "Beauty Is Gone" will be featured on an upcoming episode of "The Hills".

Here are Nikki's upcoming shows:
Oct 22, 2008, 9:00PM, Mexacali Blues, Teaneck, New Jersey
Nov 2, 2008 8:00AM (time and place TBD), NYC MARATHON, NYC
