Miles has also recorded many albums and singles while in the States, mainly with San Diego band Fluf and El Grupo Sexo.

Brett Garrity, a Wellington native, has played and recorded with NZ bands such as Short, Marineville, and Return of the Wahlbergs through the '90s and '00s.

Oyawa is Nikki's first band effort. A gifted songwriter and vocalist. Nikki has been playing for years as a solo and session artist. Her love for this band is paramount.
