Mandy Jewell stopped by Excursions today to tell Niki a bit about her adventure down to Tennessee to record her debut EP, entitled "The Road to Tennessee." They spoke about her unique blue Fender acoustic guitar, as well as the heartbreak that led her to some of the songs she's most proud of.

Mandy will play at One-Eyed Jacks tomorrow at 9pm with Good English and Repeating Arms filling out the bill for a night of great music.

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
