Nik West

Nik West ENG

The queen of bass guitar, Nik West, is coming to Kragujevac for a concert at the Garden Stage on June 29th.


Nik West is American funk bassist, singer, and songwriter. Her impressive biography also includes collaborations with icons like Quincy Jones, Prince, John Mayer, Macy Gray, Dave Stewart…

Many consider her to be one of the most important figures in the new funk scene and an heir to the legacy of the legendary Prince, with whom she had a close collaboration.

She was one of the first female musicians to play the first six-string Fender bass and became the face of their new line of bass guitars, the “Dimension Bass” (which she helped develop). She also endorsed the SWR “Black Beauty” bass amplifier. The promotional photo for this product was personally chosen by Marcus Miller.

In 2014, she released her first album “Just in the Nik of Time”, and then the second one called “Moodi” (2023).
