Originally from Shreveport, Louisiana but moved out to LA about 7 years ago. I am classically trained and well versed in many different genres including r&b, pop, country, edm, and hip-hop. Upon releasing my first solo EP, " Retrospect Vol. 1" independently late last year, I found myself signing with an independent record label, REUP Records. I have recently released my first single and music video entitled "Chills" through my new label. Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N0FdoZhFPs
I've added a couple tracks to my profile so you can check out some of my recent work. Anything from demo vocals, to songwriting, top- lining, and background vocals I got you. I pride myself on being able to deliver quality clear vocals and I also love getting creative with ad-libs and harmonies. High falsetto, powerful belts, edgy vocal tones, and anything else you might be looking for I can achieve. The prices listed are mostly for demo work only, any work-for-hire inquiries please feel free to inbox me. I offer a quick turn-around, usually 3-5 days max, plus 2 free revisions, a full demo track, and the dry wav vocal files if needed. Communication is key when collaborating and every song is treated as if it was my own so trust me when I say you're in good hands. Looking forward to working with you!

very talent guy! definitely like to work with him again!
Working with NYK was super smooth sailing and satisfying. The song we made together turned out killer and it took little effort on my part as he is really talented and intuitive. Harmonies and adlibs also come naturally for NYK, so if your song needs those nice embellishments, he brings it to the table! Will definitely be working with him again!
NYK delivered absolutely professional.
We’ll definitely come back for more.
Aye this guy may or may not make in the music business just like any of us but in my book he will always be on top of the charts.
Definitely a great artist to work with.
Delivered in one shot and that was the right one.
No revision to ask . Stem quality was also there .
Vocally on our joint he was sounding somewhere between usher and Craig david .
I seriously can't say enough good things about Nyk. He is definitely one of the top collaborators we've ever worked with on SoundBetter. Incredible voice, creative, hard working, etc, etc...His tone is unique and stands out, but is also commercial, modern and competitive. So proud of the work we do together! HIGHLY recommend.
My dude, great job. This brother right here brought something different to this project. He was professional, he was timely, and no ego. People in this industry all feel some type of way if you ask them to do something or go back and do something, he showed none of that. Hopefully in the future we can work together in studio and create. Great person to have on any project.
Nyk is unbelievably talented! His voice is soulful and unique, but also feels like it fits right in with the the highest-level, chart-topping talent. Add his writing skills to the mix and he's quickly becoming one of our favorite collaborators. Oh, and he's the coolest person too. I'm thinking we're gonna make many records together.
NYK has a phenomenal voice and an equally respectable work ethic. He delivered everything I asked for and more in record time and I would absolutely work with him again.
Another great track finished with Nyk! He’s an unbelievable talent who we’ll be coming back to again and again. His soulful voice is filled with emotion and authenticity. He’s creative and has great instincts—ones that make every song we work on highly complétive! So great.
Nyk is just plain awesome! His amazing, very current and soulful voice speaks for itself. When you start working with him, you realize his creativity and musical instincts are on a higher level than most as well. He's got the goods and is super cool too! HIGHLY recommend!

NYK captured the emotion of the song perfectly, his timing and intonation was exactly what was required for the song and the harmonies that he added lifted the song to a new level. Excellent Job!

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process when songwriting starts with coming up with the melody 1st and then going back in and writing the lyrics.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring an original perspective to a song with my unique vocal tone. No one person sees things alike. I like to tell stories with my lyrics and really make my listener feel what I'm singing about.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill would be my voice and also my songwriting.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I'm open to working on all genres but i have usually worked on pop, r&b, and country tracks.

A: The biggest misconception about what I do is that this is easy. This takes time, patience, experience , knowledge, dedication, and a love for music.

A: Most customers are usually asking about the payment amount which depends on the job. If they ask to have the song completed by a specific date we make sure to set that in the proposal.

Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I like most, is that I get to do what I love, while helping others do what they love, and getting paid at the same time.
