Q&A WITH NYREISHA
What is your Name? Where are you from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
My name is Nyreisha and I’m from San Diego , CA. I’ve wanted to be singer my whole life so you could say I was born with the interest , lol. So when I discovered I had a talent for writing and singing, I knew there was no limit.
Who and/or what inspires you to create?
My music is heavily inspired by love. Whether it be newfound love, the loss of love, or the lack thereof, love is what inspires every song I write.
How would you describe your sound?
I think my sound is like old school rnb mixed w’ a little bit of the present. It gives you that feel good love song vibe that makes you feel something.
THE CREATIVE PROCESS
What is your creative process like?
Most of the time it starts with a beat. When I hear a beat that speaks to me, the song pretty much writes itself, usually starting with the chorus. Other times it begins with a poem that I play around with to find a melody that I like and then I try and find a beat that fits it later on.
What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
I actually have a list on my phone of dream collaborations. My number one was always Michael Jackson. As far as right now, I would LOVE to work with The Weeknd, Josh Levi, Chris Brown, Brent Faiyaz, Lucky Daye & the list goes on. If I’m honest, but we can leave it there for now (laughs).
What is one message you would give to your supporters?
Oh man, honestly, just thank you. Thank you for being here for the journey. It’s nowhere near as magical if I can’t share it with y’all. & always remember that life only goes one way and that’s forward, so always move forward with love.
Be intentional with your words. Speak only truth and love and positivity. You control the tongue, you control the world.Nyreisha’s best piece of advice
What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
I am REALLY good at modeling Sims characters after real people (laughs). I’m kidding, but a talent I possess is I’m really good at doing accents from around the world!
What would you be doing right now if you weren’t doing music?
Two goals of mine outside of my music are to become a Licensed Music Therapist and a Licensed Master Esthetician. Lucky for me, all can be achieved while also pursuing my music career. There is nothing you can’t achieve when you believe in yourself.
Who are some artists/people you admire and why?
Honestly, I admire anyone who has a dream or a goal that they’re chasing after. It’s a challenge to let go of everything you know and let go of the fear and just believe you can and then do it!! Life is meant to be lived & the world is way too big to be stuck living in your head.
WRAPPING IT UP
If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
I wish it would be more accessible to artists who actually have an overall passion for the music and not just to people who have a large following / fan base.
What’s next for you? Where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
I couldn’t tell you what’s next for me. I know that I’m grateful for the moment and I’m enjoying every bit of it. In the next year, I see myself sharing more of my songs all over the world and connecting to people through my music.
What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?
My Instagram , TikTok , and X can all be found under @nyreisha__ (my name with two underscores)
