Nikki Forova is an indie pop singer-songwriter known for her unique voice, piano-driven songwriting with philosophical lyrics and sound-rich productions thriving on Nikki's string arrangements, ethnic instruments and synths woven in between drums, bass and piano. Nikki combines indie, alternative and singer songwriter into emotional and yet crowd-pleasing sound. She is often compared to Regina Spektor, Bjork and Imogen Heap.
Shortly after, Nikki co-produced her first album “Revving Wings.” It came to life as multi-colorful powerful musical work, a cross-over between singer-songwriter, eclectic and alternative rock genres. In 2010, Nikki launched into a self-organized two year tour to Europe and USA. Received with big emotions, tearful and happy, personal stories poured out of fans during the after-the-show hang outs. Press was comparing Nikki's delivery to that of Bjork and Imogen Heap. “Revving Wings” was remixed and remastered with Simon Heyworth (Erasure, Imogen Heap, Depeche Mode) and re-released in 2012.
Nikki's life made a surprising turn when a true love found her. She moved to Italy. Inspired by love and challenged to keep a life balance she wrote her album, "White Dandelions." Co-produced with London producers, Andreas Olsson (Mary J. Blige, Jason Mraz, Train) and Patrick Wood, this album is very intimate and warm, expressing the journey of humanity though dark and light to our dreams, to discover our authentic selves and experience love. In March 2013 Nikki launched on her self-organized Tour. During the tour Music Connection described it as “high-quality indie-pop... destined for the airwaves of NPR, there’s also crossover potential to pop and AAA radio formats. Her soaring tunes have a cinematic feel and would seem custom made for movie soundtracks.” Nikki signed a Record Deal with ZeitArt Records, in 2014 and continued touring through Europe.
Nikki's songwriting has been evolving becoming more rhythm driven and dynamic. Even before moving to London in 2017, she yearned to create a fusion between acoustic and electronic music. For her upcoming EP “Diamonds” she collaborated with producer Brendan Davies (Dagne, Jordan Mackampa). Brendan brought a whole new world of multi-layered rich vocal textures, electronic sounds, beats and synth bass and and together with Nikki they merged it with acoustic universe of piano, strings, electric guitars and drums. Escape is the first single to be released in September, 2018. Diamonds will follow in October. There is a Tour scheduled to Switzerland and Germany, and UK tour is in the works.
“...Her poignant words resonate amid intricate, piano-based melodies to create high-quality indie-pop similar to Regina Spektor and Yael Naim. While her style seems destined for the airwaves of NPR, there’s also crossover potential to pop and AAA radio formats.”

"I'm in constant search for artists that grasp that inner feeling of intense emotion and her voice and music inspire exactly that. Songs like 'After Today' and 'Little Green Piece of Life' capture such intense feelings of incredible beauty, that it feels like I'm falling in love.”
Mikey Jayy - All Indie Magazine
“Nikki Forova released “Revving Wings” in July 2012, earning comparisons to the likes of Imogen Heap and Tori Amos. At her fingertips, the anthem... [“Tunnels”], becomes a lovely piano ballad.”
