Nicolet Aleta Logan（妮可·希顿； 1994年12月4日出生），以她的艺名Niykee Heaton而闻名，她是美国歌手，词曲作者和模特。在上传了流行的当代流行民谣吉他封面（最著名的是嘻哈歌曲）后，通过YouTube频道发现了她。2014年，希顿发行了她的首张单曲“ Bad Intentions”，并扩大了同名曲目。单曲在Billboard上标榜，并获得RIAA的金牌认证。
希顿开始了她的第一个领衔的巡回演唱会，卧室之旅，在2015年末，并发布了类似标题的混音带，卧室游播放列表，3月18日，2016年的混音专辑编译修复材料，她以前在网上共享的免费流媒体和首次亮相在巡回演出中进行现场表演。她的后续专辑《Starting Over》于2018年通过Capitol Records发行。2020年5月1日，她与丈夫Jeff Logan生下了第一个儿子。
在谈到她的歌曲创作时，希顿说：“我的音乐直接反映了我是谁。我的写作对我来说是一切，因为那是我成长的全部。我的童年时期非常艰难，而且在我很小的时候，我有点因为口吃而停止说话。”提到她无法与朋友交往，导致她一直孤单，原因是母亲和她的妹妹住在医院，父亲喝醉了，其余的家人都住在南非，所以她“会一直写。” 她补充说：“即使我不是一字不漏地写关于我发生的事情，我童年和失去姐姐的所有痛苦最终还是被我的音乐所吸引，”她补充说自己的创作灵感，并希望以此信息为荣在她的音乐中，“它塑造了我的歌曲，并在所有事物下建立了更深层的含义，这对我来说是最重要的事情之一。” 她提到自己受到鲍勃·迪伦（Bob Dylan）和汤姆·怀特斯（Tom Waits）的强烈影响，并且还是嘻哈迷，她指出了说唱歌手如坎耶·韦斯特（Kanye West），《Chainz》（2 Chainz），《杰伊》（Jay Z），德雷克（Drake）和尼基·米娜（Nicki Minaj）等其他灵感。
希顿回答了有关她在Instagram等平台上的社交媒体存在的说法，这掩盖了她的音乐，她说：“如果我可以用美学上的东西吸引人们，那么为什么不使用它呢？我不会穿高领衫来证明一个观点，或使人们根据社会的标准感到更加舒适。” Heaton指出，她的写作风格和音乐渊源源于与“听过很多灵魂，草丛和另类音乐的年长的兄弟姐妹”的成长，以及她的妹妹对诗歌的热爱，发现了说唱歌手Lil Jon当她十岁时，引起了人们对嘻哈音乐的兴趣，她将自己的声音描述为“这两个世界相撞，就像民谣，节奏和莎士比亚 十四行诗与坎耶陷阱节拍混合在一起”。
Nicolet Aleta Logan (née Heaton; born December 4, 1994), better known by her stage name Niykee Heaton, is an American singer, songwriter and model. She was discovered through her YouTube channel after uploading acoustic guitar covers of contemporary hits, most notably hip hop songs, that went viral. In 2014, Heaton released her debut single “Bad Intentions” and an extended play of the same name. The single charted on Billboard and became gold-certified by the RIAA.
Heaton embarked on her first headlining concert tour, The Bedroom Tour, in late 2015, and released the similarly titled mixtape, The Bedroom Tour Playlist, on March 18, 2016. The mixtape compiled remastered material she had previously shared online for free streaming and debuted for her live shows during the tour. Her follow-up EP, Starting Over, was released in 2018 through Capitol Records. On May 1, 2020 she gave birth to her first son with husband Jeff Logan.
While talking about her songwriting, Heaton said, “My music is a direct reflection of who I am. My writing is everything to me because that’s all I had growing up. I had a really tough childhood and at a point when I was very young, I sort just stopped speaking because I stuttered,” mentioning her inability to have friends, causing her to always be alone due to her mother staying with her sister in the hospital, her father being drunk and the rest of her family living in South Africa, so she “would just write all the time.” “Even when I’m not writing literally about things that have happened to me, all the pain of my childhood and losing my sister ends up getting pushed into my music,” she adds about her creative inspiration and wanting to be proud of the message in her music, “It shapes my songs and builds this deeper meaning under everything, which is one of the most important things to me.” She has mentioned being heavily influenced by Bob Dylan and Tom Waits and is also a fan of hip hop, pointing out rappers like Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Jay Z, Drake and Nicki Minaj as other inspirations.
Heaton addressed claims regarding her social media presence in platforms such as Instagram overshadowing her music saying, “If I can use what I have aesthetically to draw people in, then why not use it? I’m not going to put on a turtleneck just to prove a point, or to make people feel more comfortable according to society’s standards.” Heaton notes her writing style and musical roots come from growing up with “older siblings who listened to a lot of soul and bluegrass and alternative,” and her sister’s love of poetry, having discovered rapper Lil Jon when she was ten, which sparked her interest in hip-hop music, describing her sound as “those two worlds colliding, like folk, rhythm, and Shakespeare sonnets mixed with Kanye trap beats.”
