BMI Songwriter Stage at the Historic New Orleans Collection
Songwriter Nasimiyu wields a colorful and eclectic Indie/Folk/Retro-pop sound, embodying a new, socially conscious movement that is bright and uplifting as the revolutionary generations that inspired it. Captivating audiences with her lyrically charged songs, Nasimiyu has been touted as the “New Age Nina Simone,” by Snarky Puppy’s Mike League and as “2012’s artist to watch,” in Gambit Magazine.
Nasimiyu’s bold new full-length record, entitled, “Rules Aren’t Real,” is an eclectic collection of work — all of which was written, composed, arranged, produced, and sung by the artist herself. She also played many of the instruments on the album, including piano, guitar, and drums.
“Rules Aren’t Real,” has been acclaimed as an authentic, organic, fresh, and sincere body of work — full of bright-minded lyrics and big-hearted melodic power.
