Story by Andrea Jenels
Her signature curly red locks, sense of humor, and ability to connect with her fans speaks volumes to just the kind of performer she strives to be. Such was apparent when she took time out between tuning her guitar to recognize two superfans who also attended shows in Philly earlier in the week, and Chicago just the night before. Before beginning the mellowed out "Mr. Nelson" Nikka tactfully put a rather inebriated gentleman fan into his place by stating that his alcohol influenced cat-calls sounded more "like a woman in bed" rather than an enticing proposition. Managing to keep the small yet grateful audience afloat, Costa was a reminder that in a commercial fueled industry sometimes the best musicians are not products of a well-constructed label, but rather the product of their own creative abilities and intuitions.
