Singer-songwriter-producer, Nyssa has a great understanding for modern life. Her character-driven songwriting illuminates the big picture with its edges curling in from the heat of the flame. Her cross-genre, cross-decade approach to production—with its marriage of digital and analog, live sound and sampling—is uniquely captivating. 

She has been writing and performing music since she was 12 years old—cutting her teeth in the Toronto scene and befriending musicians of all ages and paths throughout her formative years. Between her loner childhood, musical obsessions, and over a decade waiting tables and people watching, she’s cultivated a distinct lyrical voice and production style, seeking to tell stories that haven’t been told and forge unique sonic pathways. 

Nyssa released her debut album, Girls Like Me, on August 21st, 2020. Over the course of the past strange and difficult 9 months, she has been continuing to hone her craft—picking up guitar again, engaging in relentless self-exploration, and penning over 30 new songs—which she plans to start releasing throughout 2021.
