Since she was a child, she loved
to sing, dance and to write and began writing songs at the age of 9.
Her parents promoted her strong love of music and encouraged her
to sing and dance for cultural events. At the age of 18, she began
performing on stage. At 22, she put aside her musical aspirations
for the pursuit of law and is now an attorney in NYC. Law, she
learned, however, was not where her heart was, and in 2004 she
met with independent producers and recently finished the
production of a demo of 6 songs she had written. Her greatest
dream now is to sing and share her music with the world.
With the voice of an angel and beauty to match, Nishi is set to bring a new
wave of Indo-Pop to America; but, she is quick to tell you that Indian music
isn't only what she's about. Although definitely influenced by her Indian
heritage, Nishi's music is a unique blend of Indian rhythm, American Pop,
Alternative Rock and Bluesgrass. She attributes her influences to artists such as
Loreena McKennitt and Sarah McLachlan, to bands such as Creed and rock
influences of the late 80's and early 90's such as Guns n' Roses and Aerosmith.
Nishi has written over 120 songs varying in range from love ballads to soulsearching
rock songs and many sexy dance numbers.
Her tastes are an indication of the diversity and range of her music and vocal
abilities. She'll belt out a beautiful Hindi song one minute and the next switch
to a song by Joss Stone or Alicia Keys, then do an about face and sing
Nickelback and finish with a haunting melody by Alison Krauss. Indian music
is only the tip of the iceberg for this multi-talented artist.
Since 2002, Nishi has been forming a large and growing fan base through her many websites. A former
professional web designer, Nishi s personal websites traffic well over 10,000 visitors a month. When
she s not singing, composing or web designing, Nishi studies
dance, currently Bollywood Dance and Middle Eastern Belly
Dance, studies foreign policy and international affairs, writes
fiction and political articles.
Nishi s mainstream pop style and her Indian background make her
an excellent crossover artist for the U.S. market. In addition, she
also has the physical looks necessary for mainstream pop
marketability. With rich Indian beats, rock sounds and lyrics that
pull the listener into Nishi s world, her music is one which an
audience will naturally gravitate towards. Her music was produced by the mastery of artists Ashish Sheth
and Moises Modesto of Soltrenz Records and recorded at Firedog Studios in New Jersey.
Everything I am, my heart, my soul, my joys, sorrows and love, have been expressed in song.
I cannot imagine my life without music, without my songs.
Without this voice, I would be half the person I am. – Nishi
