ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in CA but raised in northern VA, Nikki Hornsby (singer, songwriter, 12 string guitarist, recording artist & music business owner lic. 1987) is the Grand-daughter of Cheerful Dan Hornsby who recorded for Columbia Records songs like "Oh Susanna", "Little Liza Jane" & was he was the original voice of "Ark Traveler" many years ago. Unfortunately Nikki never met her grandfather before he died.
More can be learned about Nikki Hornsby's lifelong career online through a google.com search and an approved Bio. on www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikki_Hornsby.
Nikki is a longtime professional member of the Academy of Country Music www.acmcountry.com & Nikki has been honored in the past with four different years nominations to their Board of Directors as a composer. Sorry but her personal website is currently down for repairs but she has a Guestbook and other networking tools on her CJP-NHRecord will have it tied in 2010 to their .com pages soon launched.

Nikki Hornsby's previous CD release here on CD Baby is called "Reaching Out" of original country songs. It is called Positive country because the instrumentation is country but the message is one of Faith. This project was started when Nikki's Uncle wrote the lyrics to "The Power of the Lord" & "My God Is Your God" for her to add the music to record in order to raise funds for a heart transplant for her older brother. Unfortunately the financial backing & time to complete the project wasn't there before her older brother passed away not seeing the completed CD. The Mantra used at that time for "Reaching Out": Come Join the Positive Wave, Spread the Word, buy "Reaching Out" through CDBaby! Now there are two more CDs that followed this one.

Marty Rifkin plays many instruments on each of these "Reaching Out" songs as well as co produced it with Nikki. Repeating the same for "Just Wait" 2006 release. Marty also worked on Jewel's Gold & Platinum LPs plus worked in studio with other named recording artists like Tom Petty, & the Boss, as well. Check his musicians credits online through the All Music Guide www.allmusic.com

Nikki herself has been honored to work with many named professional musicians on her CJP-NHRecords previous radio charted releases as well as worked live on stage with many too. 2006 Nikki released TWO MORE CDs full of original professional recorded & commercially songs and plans to record at least 5 more full of her different writing styles of music.

Once a reporter said "Nikki has a clear, strong, vocal & writes songs ready for anyone to sing with strong hooks and melody lines." Her fulltime performance list & many letters of recommendation shows her abilities to reach her listeners live as well as hold their interest in all venues. She can duplicate this as well in the studio as you will see in "Just Wait" 2006 release of Pop, Jazzy Blues, Folk, one Country song & a straight Rock tune doing the background harmony vocals as well as her arrangement of different instruments in each song.

Reviews regarding "Draw the Line" from "Reaching Out" were favorably increased especially after Sept. 11th and this song was released on CRN Network reaching 11 million listeners and it was also used in a film called "Heart of the Beholder" in 2004.

President & Mrs. Bush have sent Nikki thank you notes for their special "Reaching Out" copy.

Govenor Arnold Schwarzenegger got advance copy of songs from "Just Wait" including the patriotic song "This IS America" responding with a nice thank you letter as well.

Los Angeles TV Channel 7 Weatherman Dallas Raines has also responded favorably in writing to "Reaching Out" and he also has his advance copy of a few songs from "JUST WAIT" being a fan of her music mentioning his family is as well.

The group of "Original Releases" (compilation) CD & "Just Wait" (of pop, rock, country, blues, & folk songs) CD released (CJP-NHRecords) in Europe and world wide. European written reviews are outstanding to date. TV & commerical radio interview appearances Nikki Hornsby has made in Europe in support of her work has been extremely positive as well. Photos available of all events. Check a fan's webpage for data information & more photos of even her family's connections to Frank Sinatra & Jimmy Van Huesen, as well as her own associations to other famous names: example the Pop Recording Artist with the same last name: Bruce Hornsby. So just read the truth that is available online through this fan's webpage at www.patswayne.com/nikki

Check with CDBaby for your CD copies of these 2006 releases too! More CDs of the hundreds of songs Ms. Hornsby has written will soon be available in time.

Lyrics & Music
Please note: Nikki Hornsby wrote the music to all the songs on "Reaching Out" but the lryics to "The Power of the Lord" & "My God Is Your God" were written by E.Weinberg. "The Power.." was written to help Nikki's older brother who successfully received a heart transplant a year ago but suddenly passed away in Oct. 2000 before this CD was released. The CD was dedicated to her brother's memory. Thank you.

Nikki Hornsby MYSELF:)

Want to Add CD Baby to my list of distributors for new 2006 Releases
Hey, CD Baby did a great job with "Reaching Out" and I am here in Europe looking forward to the shipment being made of my "JUST WAIT" & "PREVIOUS RELEASES" CDs back to the US for CD Baby to continue their great work. My CJP-NHRecords Office is being relocated this week and will be back in order soon. My exposure for my music throughout Europe has been great! For me even one song on CNN TV International broadcast played "This IS America" for Fans in support of the USA Soccer team which was awesome! I just got a VHS tape copy of it from a fan that I will try when I have the money to pay for it to get into DVD to share online. I asked CNN NY for a copy but they've not replied. I also had great exposure for my original music doing a live performance on TV in Spain in support of my lifelong songwriting & performance career too. I love the business that I inherited from my grandfather Dan and finally have a CD copy of samples of his music recorded on Columbia like "Oh Susanna" etc. now too. So from someone who has worked very hard know that: All things are possible and if you work at it and get GOOD ADVICE without stopping because everyone has their own opinion and things are always changing...nothing is set into stone ...all will be good. I can't wait to have my new CD lables in house designed like "Reaching Out" was done show up on CD Baby's search engine. Stay tuned and it will happen as it could for you too ...or as my CD 2006 title says "JUST WAIT" but don't stop "Reaching Out" because you are an original yourself like CD BABY is too. God bless........

Thomas A. Rogers

Moving lyrics, wonderful music, spiritually up lifting.
I don't normally listen to this type of music but I found it
extremely easy to listen to, I enjoyed the music and I
thought the lyrics were well written.
I will add it to my music collection and enjoy it often.

Renate


Nikki, Your CD Reaching out, which you have dedicated to the memory of your brother is wonderful...I feel it is a contribution of yours to make this earth a better place - spread out the word to the world. Continue making such good songs for us! Love, Renate
