The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Struttin'” from the sophomore album by Nikki Hill, Heavy Hearts, Hard Fists. The album is available now from independent label Deep Fryed Records. You can purchase it through all major digital retailers like Amazon.

Nikki has had a whirlwind career, thus far. She is solidifying herself at the forefront of the vintage R&B revolution by crafting authentic original music in a classic style that could easily fit in any era. A few years ago, she wasn’t even singing professionally; but the encouragement of her husband, Blues guitarist and singer Matt Hill, placed Nikki in the spotlight, and we all found out it’s where she belongs. She released an EP in 2012, a second EP and her debut full length album in 2013, and toured extensively before heading into the studio with her band to craft this new CD.
