Nikki composes original music and plays violin and piano. However, she considers herself primarily a singer. She was a member of 3Pile, the folk/rock/bluegrass band who collaborated to compose all of the original music for Trinity Repertory Company's acclaimed production of The Grapes of Wrath.
A Look at Our Process: The original melody and lyrics of Rose's Song are by Nikki Massoud, inspired by the character Rose of Sharon from The Grapes of Wrath. The first version of Rose's Song (below) is a cappella, the second version is the spectacular result of 3Pile's collaboration on the song.
Nikki provides soprano vocals for Slowly and violin on Got to Give.
