Nikka Costa “PRO*WHOA”

Nikka Costa is a singer who started her career as a child star in the ’80s. She reemerged as an adult with her 2001 album “Everybody Got Their Something” (a personal favorite). The album was a breakthrough moment for Costa, she was finally able to showcase her powerful soul-infused vocals. There has been a downside to her adult career because it’s been hard for her to not to fall into a “retro”, dated sound. With her latest EP “Pro*Whoa!” Nikka Costa tries out different elements to give her sound an update. There is no better example of this than the title track “Pro*Whoa”, it is definitely more of a rocking song than Costa’s previous material. Take a listen and let me know what you think and leave a comment dangit!
