About Me
Download my EP from http://nikkilynette.bandcamp.com so that I can afford to keep making good music instead of shitty music. Thank you.

i kinda rock. i do music (sing, rap, write, produce.) it's fun as hell. i draw and paint and sculpt and do graphic design and make jewelry, too. so yeah, i got your baby's momma beat by a long shot. i hate polite people who sacrifice authenticity for "getting along" and people who catch an attitude quicker than me. i love food with lots of curry, free styling in cyphers, Family Guy, The Office, high heels, lipstick, and any book on Carl Jung (fuck Freud.) i am normal. everybody else is weird ;-)

i do voice overs for commercials and i write them, too. and i co-host a tv show. and i sell songs, do arrangements, and produce vocal sessions for other artists, too (mostly rappers).

What up Rockers!


Lord Q here, Founder of LA PUNK NOIR and LAPUNKNOIR.com. In an effort to promote Black and Brown bands and artists that don’t fit within the narrow perceptions of mainstream radio, I have started an online show, LPN RADIO. I am writing to ask that your band submit songs and links to your site to be featured on the show.

As you may be aware, LPN is the hub of West Coast Alternative Urban music, news and style. For bands and artists that Black radio has no room for and mainstream radio is afraid of, the LPN platform is available to you. LPN RADIO features alternative urban bands in the genres of rock, punk, metal and alternative hip-hop. I am also interested in introducing your band, via the LPN interview series, Q:15, a daily 15 minute segment, where two songs of featured guests are played, with an interview in between.  

If your band is interested in these opportunities, follow the submission guidelines:
  • Submit 2 songs in mp3 format
  • Link to band’s site
  • Contact information of band representative, and


mail to: lapunknoir@gmail.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers,
Lord Q
