|Love In The Dark|
Blessed with a soulful voice, gift for songwriting and leading man looks, Nikko Sherard, was born in Fort Worth, TX where he spent nearly half his childhood with his biological Mother and younger brother. The other half was spent overseas in the tranquil kingdom of Norway growing up with his Dad, step-mother, and twin siblings.
It was his Norwegian upbringing that helped to shape Nikko's sound as a recording artist and songwriter. In conjunction with his mother's fetish for R&B music (Babyface, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston), Nikko delved into some of his Dad's favorites like Prince, Lenny Kravitz , The Police and Journey. "All of my music definitely has a rock influence as well as an R&B influence. If I had to label myself, I would really say my music is alternative R&B. I've got that soul vibe from growing up in the church, but at the end of the day, I feel like a rocker."
The eclectic Nikko also happens to be a model. It's something he picked up soon after high school graduation to help fund his music aspirations. With two cousins already in the field of catalog modeling, Nikko was strongly encouraged by his family to give it a try. He went on to appear in a McDonald's commercial for MTV, acquire a booking agency and he moved to New York to continue realizing his dream.
Formerly a member of the vocal group Blue Mink (winner of the Jive Records artist showcase), Nikko Sherard is a New York based solo singer-songwriter and agency represented fashion model. This summer Nikko released his debut mixtape "The Voices of Nikko Sherard," which is available at NikkoSherard.com, DatPiff.com and on Nikkos soundcloud page. The mixtape features the singles "That Be You" currently in rotation on Music Choice and "Ole Girl" featuring B. Hamp of "Do The Ricky Bobby" fame. Other collaborators include; producer J. Tarin, Andre Merritt, Co-P, Drop Zone (aka Chris and Teeb), Chrisman Oliver and Invaderz.
An authentic representation of alternative Pop and R&B is what fans can expect from Nikko's solo debut. It is one part soul and a whole lot of rock and roll! It's often referred to as Urban Pop. Whatever you call it, the sound is uplifting music that makes you feel good!
