Coming from a rich musical background of Soul, Funk, RnB, and Rock, Nikita brings a vibe that is both sexy and psychedelic with an original sound they’ve dubbed “Purple Soul”. Nikita has an undeniable energy onstage and in the studio that has had audiences dancing and singing along since day one.  Passionate, energetic, and funky, their roots ensure that the Nikita family tree is ready to grow.

Artist Bio

The quartet Dopapod—Eli Winderman [keys, vocals], Rob Compa [guitar, vocals], Chuck Jones [bass], and Neal “Fro” Evans [drums]—present albums as experiences meant to be shared out of your speakers and on stage. Traversing time travel, palindromic labyrinths, and binary pairs in a greater cohesive mystery, Dopapod’s forthcoming self-titled album ties the conceptual ends of the group’s discography, while charting a path forward. The group’s hypnotic hybrid of funk,rock, jazz, bluegrass, and electronica has packed shows coast-to-coast, and earned acclaim from Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Glide Magazine, and more, while reeling in millions of streams online. Their immersive, expansive vision as a group continues to conjure alchemy nearly fifteen years into their journey with the release of their seventh album, Dopapod out in spring of 2022.

Dopapod access a heightened level of cosmic harmony in their music. The quartet—Eli
Winderman [keys, vocals], Rob Compa [guitar, vocals], Chuck Jones [bass], and Neal “Fro”
Evans [drums]—present albums as experiences meant to be shared out of your speakers and
on stage. After generating millions of streams, packing shows coast-to-coast, and earning
acclaim from Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Glide Magazine, and more, the group architect an
immersive and expansive vision on their self-titled seventh full-length offering, Dopapod.
The group’s hypnotic hybrid of funk, rock, jazz, bluegrass, and electronica bloomed brilliantly on 2009’s Radar, and it continued to blossom on the likes of Never Odd Or Even [2014] and
Megagem [2017]. Along the way, fan favorites such as “Present Ghosts” reeled in 2.4 million
Spotify streams and counting. 2019’s Emit Time arrived to acclaim from Guitar World, Relix,
Glide, Jambase, and more. Simultaneously, they sold out headline gigs and graced the bills of
Electric Forest, Summer Camp, High Sierra, and Bonaroo where Rolling Stone named them
among the festival’s “best kept secrets.” After a marathon near-decade run, they enjoyed an
almost year-long hiatus to realign and reenergize before reuniting with a new fire during 2019
and partaking in something of a “soft return.”

After a brief hiatus to regroup and recharge their creative efforts, Dopapod assembled what
would become their next album, the self-titled Dopapod, and looked at the loose threads of their catalog to conceptually tie their journey together. They chose to self-title their seventh offering as a totem to the fact they’ve realized their full potential in terms of music and vision. Tackling time travel, balance and symmetry, binary pairs and more, Dopapod’s palindromic existence continues to conjure alchemy nearly fifteen years into their journey.
