Just Wait Instrumentally
Nikki Hornsby marketed CJP-NHRecords recorded products worldwide in the late 1980s but did not go at that time to support the European commercial charting obtained from a Number One in Spain to the top 5 throughout Europe. Even people in Nashville were impressed with her accomplishments from her original first time released work but she has always based success only on the merit of the product produced, the choices of the listeners, & the radio personalities choices at that time. Funding was not available to pay for more marketing services. Challenged by the fact she was not married and had to support herself financially with her own hard club work, she continued as a club performer sometimes five days and and then playing nights each week. She did this in order to buy a house, cars, RV, & rental property within Southern CA not far from the beach. Working with many professional musicians all her life she also consulted some who were starting out full time in the music business on how to accomplish the task from clubs to recording business. This is how CJP-NHRecords started in the beginning as a licensed consulting business. Some local engineer from a business in her lounge audience one night said she maybe could make the European radio charts but could not make the radio charts in the USA. She knew how she could and proved them wrong with her next 'Shoestring & A Prayer' USA release (CJP-NHRecords) which was like her first recordings - financed independently. Nikki Hornsby followed that National airplay up with a USA 17 day 17 State tour she then financed with a gas credit card from her brother and guided by her radio promoters across the USA doing radio on-air interviews. She paid in time away from income for this trip in gratitude for the airplay already achieved among the Majors throughout the country radio stations in the USA. Nikki gave credit always in print to the financial investors on her production projects which were proving marketable each and every time based on the merit of the songs. In the year 2000, Nikki's older brother became terminal ill in need of a heart transplant so she went back into the studio to make another CD called 'Reaching Out' of original positive country songs dedicated to him. This was financed by herself & family members. But her brother died before it's commercial release. The product is available now in limited editions. 'Reaching Out' CJP-NHRecords CD product made 10 worldwide original releases including the prior VHS Video Highlights. The Video Nikki marketed & sold out all the manufactured issues to her fan club membership and the profit returned to the business. The next CJP-NHRecords project in 2004 would be her own choices of originals with her own choice of instrument arrangements. Nikki Hornsby co produced this CJP-NHRecords product with Marty Rifkin, Santa Monica, CA. The knowledge combined that she had from prior recordings with Marty proved priceless. This she would finance this project totally herself knowing the return would come from hard work as the past had always proven. This s430 project called: 'Just Wait' CD would be test marketed in 2005 and released in 2006. These ten songs she would take herself to Europe where she was given the first chance in the 80-90s to be a respected singer-songwriter, musician, & recording artist. It was the same proven marketing just repeated for the merit of the songs once more. In Europe 2005-2006 she would prove her music on radio & tv. Nikki Hornsby had the goal of giving access & financial returns of her originals to other artists to record once they reached a Grammy (NARAS) level. Nikki reached that level with the acceptance of membership & submissions for the first NARAS ballot 2007 but an unfortunate accident happened that stopped her networking & this projects progress. The end of 2007 into 2008 Nikki was recovering from personal injuries from an in flight airplane accident on the way home to USA. Then in 2008 CJP-NHRecords became incorporated with plans for future financial success as hard work would provide. In 2009 Nikki Hornsby released 'Just Wait Instrumentally'. There are other projects in the planning stages and more added daily. Nikki Hornsby was contacted in 2007 but could not attend to another project idea because of her injuries. It was called 'TIA, Changing the Unsung Part' for CJP-NHRecords to offer 20 unknown writers a 2 CD deal. This project is for civilians related to military servicemen & women. Once production is completed this product will be distributed worldwide. Nikki will do her part of this project in production with various studios & styles of music into the manufacturing phases once the submissions are gathered by another group online and then it will be presented with the funds required for the production but the profits will be sent for military families. Nikki Hornsby has over 300 songs of her own that she wrote in different styles from Pop, Country, to Rock & Folk. She has personally performed them in concerts, live on Radio & TV throughout Europe. She has played her own music & some covers in her own style for years in the USA with extremely positive responses. She will produce more of her original songs in the recording studio. There are plans for upcoming productions & for this music to travel on to continue sharing. Nikki Hornsby will be taking CJP-NHRecords, Inc. with other artists into a higher index of profit returns. This is Nikki Hornsby's dream because she knows & has said for years from experience that all music is without limits or borders. She writes songs for sharing with others because as an artist, who inherited her talents, she knows the music is made to reach hearts to fill them up with the gift given to her. It is this inherited gift for which Nikki Hornsby cares and works very hard in spite of many hardships. Just listen to the lryics she writes and if you like the Instrumental Version of the songs of 'Just Wait' you will see as well as hear the hope, faith, & trust that a giving gift provides to all.
