181 – Behind the Scenes with Nika Roza

Have you ever wondered what lies behind the scenes of creation through music, art, and song?

In this week’s episode of the Spirituality Now podcast, we are honored to feature  Russian-American singer and songwriter, Nika Roza Danilova, widely known as Zola Jesus.

Nika Roza Danilova (born Nicole Rose Hummel; April 11, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. Her music seamlessly blends electronic, industrial, classical, and goth influences. Born in Phoenix, Arizona, she began her independent musical journey in northern Wisconsin during her college years. Danilova released two singles during her second year of studies through the independent label Sacred Bones, followed by two EPs. Her debut album, “The Spoils,” was unveiled in 2009.

Nika has released at least six studio albums, two compilation albums, two split albums, four extended plays and more than eighteen singles.

In this episode, Nika  shares her insights about:

  1.  Exploring the profound roles of music in our emotions.
  2. Navigating life’s highs and lows while befriending melancholy.
  3. Addressing challenges within the music industry.
  4. The often misunderstood & lonely  journey of a creator.
  5. The Call of the Divine to renew and transform and so much more.
