    Nakia’s Thrill-O-Matic Music Video Release Party

    March 31 @ 7:00 pm


    See the debut of Nakia’s music video for his newest single “Thrill-O-Matic” on March 31 at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin! Tickets available now!

    “On season one of NBC’s “The Voice,” Nakia became a fan favorite using his big, grizzly voice, transforming pop songs with his own unique style. While producers focused on his relationship and his struggle to make ends meet as a blues singer, they didn’t show audiences Nakia was a beloved member of the Austin music community, fronting bands, being of service to his community, and working with some of music’s biggest names, including Sharon Jones, Alejandro Escovedo, BB King, and more

    After the whirlwind of reality television, Nakia toured, wrote songs, and released music. Nakia had recently reconnected with his love of acting and had just completed his first workshop as a student of Betty Buckley when COVID shuttered everything. With live events canceled, Nakia helped create emergency relief funding for musicians and music venues in Austin. In late 2020, Matthew McConaughey named Nakia one of four, “Local Legends” as recognition of his advocacy work. Nakia recently began composing music for film and TV, and during the pandemic he recorded and released a 15-song musical film called Dueling Pianos co-written with Joshua R. Pangborn. Since 2020 Nakia has been working on a brand new album while also releasing singles like “Private Hell,” “It’s Never Too Late,” and “Thrill-O-Matic.” Nakia has a brand new band and will be playing lots of shows in 2024.”
