wide vocal range (from alto to soprano) I specialised in soul, R'n'B, pop, neo soul I play the violin, piano, guitar I expert in vocal arrangements I emotional, poetic songwriting

My vocal range goes from alto up to soprano and I come up with a whole backing vocal arrangement in addition to my main top lines and lyrics. Other than that I also play the violin if anyone is in need of some strings! I grew up with Soul, R'n'B and Pop, which are the fields I specialise in. However, I have participated in lots of musicals throughout my carrier as well so I had a chance to embrace a variety of music styles.
I take my inspiration from poetic songwriters such as Nick Drake, Beyoncé, Adele, Chloe x Halle, Jordan Rakei or Tom Misch.
Last year I graduated college in 'Music Production' and spent some time in the UK/London to specialise in vocals and songwriting/toplining.
Besides that I have a soul/funk/jazz band called 'Mojo Island' with whom I released an EP in 2018. I wrote and sang all lyrics. My former artist name was Nashira Cole with which I released a few features listed down below. This year my first solo album produced by the german beat maker 'Beatmensch5000' is going to be released.

I'm excited to work on new projects and to challenge myself every day! So contact me and we can talk about how I can help you.
