Nakia was just in Studio 1A at KUTX, doing a performance presented by the Austin Music Foundation, and it should come as no surprise that he had his audience completely captivated. Hearing his song “Dream Big” live over the air was beautiful and absolutely heartbreaking. Nakia puts heart and soul into what he does, and you feel it radiating from the stage.
There’s a special treat coming up for Nakia fans, before he heads out to New York City next month for a show at the Bowery Electric. Enjoy his music and energy in a more intimate setting when he presents his solo piano residency shows at The Belmont, 305 W. 6th St. You can see him there tonight, and each Wednesday night throughout the rest of this month. Sharing the bill tonight is the fabulous Lex Land. It’s is an early show; doors open at 6 p.m., and the music starts at 7 p.m. Recommended.
