On a promo photo Nik West poses with an eccentric Mohawk haircut and an eccentrically painted electric bass guitar. And she isn't standing, she's doing the splits. And what do we learn from it? Nik West is a flexible musician, who has no problem with expressing herself. In fact the singer und bassist is one of the most impressive soul and funk performers. This also attracted Prince's attention, who surprised her with a phone call in 2012, which in return led to one of the defining cooperations of her career.
