Just This Side of Memphis

Two Can Play That Game

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.   Beginning  her journey in Detroit,  Niecie has tore up the music scene for over 3 decades. Niecie has shared the stage with the likes of Koko Taylor, Larry McCray, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, former Allman Brothers Johnny Neel, Outlaws guitar slinger Chris Anderson, blues rock sensations Anthony Gomes and Albert Castiglia and the legendary Shaun Murphy. A few of her notable performances include The Cancun Jazz Festival, Jackson BluesFest, Blues On the Hill, and SummerFest.  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 blues-man 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.
