Nikki Glaspie is among the premier drummers in music today. As a founding member of The Nth Power she’s blazing a path of light, and rolling waves of love in her wake. Nikki Glaspie has been trotting the globe behind the likes of Beyonce, Maceo Parker, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, GRiZ, and more. For the better part of two decades, Nikki has been in-demand, with a who’s who of the jazz/funk scene.
Nikki Glaspie is already a living legend, well before her fortieth birthday.
Remarkably, it feels as though she has merely just begun!
