Tell us a bit about yourself and your music
My name is Nyah Lavina and I am 19 years old. I was born in Staten Island, NY, and I was raised in South Florida. My dream has been to become a highly successful singer from the age of 4. Not only am I a singer but I write all my songs and hope to write songs for bigger artists one day. My music is mostly R&B/Soul but I also create Reggaeton and Pop music. I am working closer to my dream every day one step at a time and enjoying the journey.
Describe your vibe in three words?
Confident, fun, and kind.
What was the creative process like getting your project to an audience?
I always start from a spark of inspiration. I write out how I feel at the moment, choose my chord progression on my piano or guitar and finally structure and format the song. It is important that I always try to get my songs to a point of perfection but to still have fun while doing it.
Who's your biggest influence or supporter?
That would be my mother. She is the one person that I am influenced and supported by the most. She pushes me every day to be the best I can be. That definitely plays into my personality and how I carry myself.
Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
My favorite question to answer! In 5 years, I see myself working on a 3rd album. Having recognition from people all over the world and from my favorite artists in the industry. I see myself giving back to my community and speaking out to younger generations about the importance of following their dreams. And the biggest goal of all is earning a Grammy. I'm definitely looking forward to some big collabs in the future as well.
Any up and coming gigs, projects or releases you'd like to shout-out?
Nothing I want to mention just yet, but to my fans, definitely be on the lookout and listen to my 3 newest singles; “Every Song Goes Out To You,” “Tell Me Why,” and “Into Your Heart."
Thank you for having me!
