BIO

Niki Symone, born Niki Simone Jones a native of San Antonio, Texas, is a singer whose trademark vocals shadow a touch of the legendary Tina Turner, the raw soul of Erykah Badu , & a splash of Nina Simone (Who she later found out she was named after)

 

Niki began singing at the age of 3 humming to songs in church and on the radio. At the age 6 she sung in her church choir which she continued to her adult years. At the age 19 she joined a local youth group by the name of San Antonio Youth Ensemble (SAYE) which was the highlight of her singing journey. Singing professionally was a dream and goal for Ms Niki.

Church is where she developed her talented and was encouraged to continue her singing gift by her late father Louis S Jones (Cool Breeze) who was a singer & drummer as well. Her musical background with her love for music is what keep the sultry song bird on her mission. 

In 2007, the creation of her first written song (Love At First Sight) was born. Not realizing how once were just words on a piece of paper- expressed feelings from a period in her life; would be such an incredible song loved by the world!

 

 In 2010 was when she got an opportunity to work as a door girl, which turned into the blessing to become a house vocalist for Soul Sessions SA (She was known as The First Lady of Soul Sessions) . Providing a soulful touch to the poetry platform. Which allowed not only a platform to showcase her talent on a weekly basis for the duration of 2 years but to get people familiar to who she was!
