Biography: Nya, a singer-songwriter with a soulful vibe and humble spirit has never cared to “fit in” to any one particular mold, and the artist’s genre-bending music reflects an inspiring boundlessness. Hailing from Tampa, Florida, Nya nurtured her artistic pursuits at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts and quickly discovered music to be the most powerful channel for her self-expression. Her attendance of NYU, and her love and embrace of New York City, have further influenced her empathetic, relevant, and often rebellious lyricism. Throughout her journey, Nya has remained rooted in her personal values of living one’s truth and spreading kindness & love. Nya’s sound is mercurial and is a timeless blend of classic soul and alternative R&B. Influenced by legends such as Frank Sinatra and Aretha Franklin, Nya’s debut single, ‘Round n Round,’ bespeaks old school influences with Nya’s heart-felt and modernistic expression.
