Nikki White, a Canadian singer and songwriter, describes her music as having a dark pop sound with a message, and her latest single, “Fairweather Friends,” is no exception. The song was written in collaboration with Jordyn Kane and Aaron Blackmar during a session in Los Angeles, where White was inspired by the phrase “fairweather friends” from a conversation with her boyfriend. The accompanying music video was directed by Alexander Sworik and was shot in White’s hometown with a loose plan and lots of energy. White draws inspiration from female musicians such as Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Debbie Harry, and Amy Winehouse, and hopes that her music will help break down stigmas surrounding mental health issues. White has also supported several non-profit organizations, including NEDA, Project Heal, Women for Women International, Eating Disorder Foundation of Canada, and Hopes Garden. Throughout 2023, White plans to release more singles in the coming months.
