Hooked Like Helen

Within a year of inheriting a small home studio, Nikki and Jon Stipp created Hooked Like Helen and became sought after by music supervisors for E!, MTV, Netflix and more. The band’s ballad, “Liar” quite literally inspired the script for the film “High Strung: Free Dance” (Jane Seymour) which featured the song in a pivotal dance sequence. Nikki custom scored for 9 scenes across the 3-time Emmy-winning docu-series “CHEER”, and continues to provide music for upcoming titles through BMG.

In tandem with their sync success, Hooked Like Helen has developed a reputation as an awe-inspiring live act. In 2023, the band completed two national tours with Icon For Hire and No Resolve/Halocene, opened for Jewel, Taylor Hicks, and Blood Sweat & Tears, and played as direct support for PVRIS at Sandusky Pride. Hooked Like Helen is slated to release a waterfall of new alternative rock material this year. They are currently in the studio with several heavy-hitting rock producers, recording the music that won over thousands of fans on tour.

Hooked Like Helen is cultivating a community of healing. Through dark lyrical themes of childhood trauma and substance abuse, HLH crafts relatable sing-along anthems of hope and resilience. “Sleepwalker” – a song for those struggling with addiction – is a fan favorite and has been featured on Loudwire Nights and spun on 36 commercial rock stations. Nikki is 11 years sober, and uses her platform to illuminate a path of survival.

Hooked Like Helen’s music oscillates between moments of intimate piano/vocal arrangements and intense Rock and Roll. Equal parts vulnerable and fierce.

Hooked Like Helen has a local Cleveland show coming up on July 16th at The Winchester Bar and Tavern, opening for America’s Got Talent Alumni, Liliac. This show is for all ages! You can type in HLH in the Access Code  to receive the $5 off discount! Click HERE to buy tickets.
