Since she was born Nikesha Lindo has grown up with reggae music as she is the daughter of Willie Lindo, who is a legend in reggae music as a musician and producer, and sister of the multitalented Kashief Lindo. So it's not a real surprise that her interest in music just evolved naturally. She did her first professional recording at age 8, voicing the Christmas song "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer" in combination with her older brother, Kashief Lindo. She subsequently released a solo album of Christmas songs when she was 12.

Nikesha Lindo, who is not only a singer but also a songwriter, writes her own originals as well as songs for other artists. She has a lovers rock style of writing, but she's versatile and writes about different aspects of love, and about other things as well, like culture and positive uplifting, feel good, type of songs. In recent times she has more and more concentrated on developing her musical career, which led to recording a number of her originals for ace reggae producers such as Kemar "Flava" McGregor, Sly & Robbie, Jah Snowcone, and of course her father Willie Lindo. Some of these new releases include solo efforts such as "Home Is Where The Heart Is", the beautiful "Love In Every Season" across a relick of Delroy Wilson's "Movie Star", the solid "Always", the infectious dancehall fueled "Hook Me", "Silly Games" on the "Baltimore" riddim, as well as combination tunes like "Why Do I Cry So" with Don Yute on the riddim of Althea & Donna's hit tune "Uptown Top Ranking", "All My Love" with Sizzla, and "Small Changes" with Kashief Lindo. All of them are included on her "Offishal Mixtape", produced and mixed by Rico Vibes of Natural Vibes Sound, along with a few cover versions including Marcia Griffith's Studio One classic "Melody Life", J.C. Lodge's "Telephone Love" and her new single "Yesterday" from the Beatles.

Nikesha Lindo's 20 track "Offishal Mixtape" is a very good taster for her forthcoming full length debut album, scheduled for release later in the year.
