New Jersey native, Niki Rubin, has been singing and performing for as long as she can remember. Recently, the singer has branched out on projects with local indie artists in the hip-hop and reggae circuits.
In addition to music, Rubin has been professionally acting for over 15 years. She earned three awards for her acting work including “Best Supporting Actress” from The Action On Film International Film Fest for her portrayal of a crossbow assassin. She’s also best known for her role of “Catwoman.”
Rubin has dedicated her life to performing acting, singing, dancing and modeling. She says, “I think in poetry: I have always written almost every day, whether it was poetry or music. Even waking up in the middle of the night to write and record.” She intends to concentrate on performing her music over the next five years.
“I feel like acting helped to really tell my story; it made the stories I told through music more relatable. I hope to reach as many people as possible with my messages of love, positivity, hope and respect,” says Rubin.
On her recent track release: “‘Plead For Love’ is about my heart and soul hurting any time I hear about hate or violence. I wrote it during the Trump election. It was about the back and forth violence of everybody, every day. People unfriending each other, etc. We need to come together. These events have affected me so negatively. My words are intended to spark something in people.”
PFL was first released as a single in 2017. It’s now part of Awake, a mini R&B compilation released in August, 2018.
In addition to acting, recording and performing her own music, Rubin is a featured lead singer with the Double G Posse band that plays at Harlem’s Paris Blues every other Sunday (for the past five years), as well as the ABC Lounge in the East Village.Rubin has performed her original music at venues around New York, such as Ashford and Simpson’s Sugar Bar, the Go Africa Fest in 2016, the OZE Lounge, NAMA, and the 5K Concert Series on the Jewel Yacht, Manhattan.Rubin says, “It’s never too late to see different perspectives and be open to love.”Preview PFL on Apple Music.
