Raised in Tampa, Florida, Nya was enchanted by the transportive power of music from a young age, captivated by the expressiveness of classic performers such as Frank Sinatra and Fred Astaire. Those great stylists guided her way as Nya discovered her passion for singing in high school, gifted with a silky, timeless voice and a preternatural ability to translate her deepest feelings into relatable songs with ear-worm melodies. As her artistic growth continued, Nya embraced the influence of her favorite modern performers, from the unvarnished lyricism of Fiona Apple to vibe-heavy, contemporary acts like the Internet who defy neat musical categorization. With an ever-evolving sound, Nya’s retro-tinged music always shows a forward-
thinking vision and a desire to push herself creatively. Now with a number of impressive releases under her belt, Nya is poised to start the new decade with a bang.
The Evolution Of Nya’s Music
Coming off the release of Hold On, an unplugged EP that foregrounded her emotive voice and trenchant writing, Nya plans to spend much of 2020 overseas, forging connections with audiences onstage and further pushing her sound with international collaborators on the cutting edge. As longtime fans know, Nya’s creative journey might take her anywhere, but the end point is always clear: soul-baring music that sticks in your head and cuts to the bone.
