Nik West Drops Funky New Joint “Bottom Of The Bottle”

Bass dynamo Nik West recently released her hot new single “Bottom Of The Bottle.” This irresistibly funky track showcases both West’s prodigious bass skills and impressive talents as a vocalist.

The song boasts an infectious melody that’s supported by a dope bass-thumpin’ groove; West also throws a cool little rap into the mix. The track is accompanied by a vibrant, colorful music video, which nicely complements the song.

In a recent interview with Vibe magazine, West explained that "the song is about letting go of all of your worries, and instead of wondering why bad things happen, and instead of drowning yourself with the negative, don’t let hard times keep you down for long. Live your life to the fullest and try to see the good in it all. Smile, whistle, sing, dance even if you’re “’at the bottom of the bottle.’”

The talented young musician/singer/performer has definitely been living life to the fullest and making a name for herself in the music game in the process. She has been receiving tons of praise for her incredible prowess on the bass as well as her electrifying live performances and strong vocal abilities. 

Additionally, the Arizona native has worked with big-name music artists such as Prince, Marcus Miller, Bootsy Collins, Lenny Kravitz, Steven Tyler, George Clinton/Parliament-Funkadelic, John Mayer and Dave Stewart. And she has appeared on the cover of a slew of bass musician magazines and has been featured in a number of publications for Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, Rolling Stone, Afropunk, among others.

West has some gigs lined up next month. Check out her website to keep up with tour dates and new music releases.
