Don’t miss Nikki Lane – Denim and Diamonds Tour at HI-FI Annex in Indianapolis on Sunday, October 2nd! Get your tickets HERE.
Folk/Americana artist Nikki Lane released a new track ‘Born Tough’, from Lane’s highly anticipated forthcoming album, Denim & Diamonds, set to release on September 23rd.
Raised as a Baptist in Greenville, South Carolina, Lane discovered music as an outlet for creative expression at an early age, dropping out of school at 17 to move to Los Angeles, then New York, and then Nashville to launch her songwriting career.
Denim & Diamonds was born out of a moment of careful consideration in Lane’s career—when several years of touring behind her last album came to an end and the early days of the pandemic forced everyone inside, Lane knew it was time to find inspiration somewhere new.
Lane enlisted Queens of the Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme to help her bring Denim & Diamonds to life, with whom she assembled a studio band of big-budget talent consisting of his Queens of the Stone Age collaborators Alain Johannes on guitar, Dean Fertita on organ and Michael Shuman on bass, as well as drummers Matt Helders of Arctic Monkeys and Carla Azar of Autolux.
