Cashbox Magazine has described Niecie as a “raw and soulful…..rocking blues powerhouse”. Produced by Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner former Allman Brothers Johnny Neel, Niecie’s music has topped charts all over the world landing on Billboard, RMR and Living Blues charts. Blue-E-News voted Niecie Top 25 Women In Music. Niecie was recently voted Fan Favorite by the LA Music Critics Awards.
Beginning her journey in Detroit, Niecie has tore up the music scene for over 3 decades. Compared to top entertainers Blues Blast Magazine dotes “If you are an entertainer that is going to go by one name (like Sting, Cher or Bono), you had better have the talent to back it up, and Niecie passes this test easily.”
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.
