New York, NY – August 25, 2014
Emerging pop artist Nana releases new single “Blessed Life” off her upcoming album, set to release later this year. “Blessed Life” is a song that relates to each and every one of us. Through an upbeat and soulful melody and meaningful lyrics, Nana relates to the human experience of enduring challenges, purveying an electric optimism. She believes all music should have a reason, a purpose, and be a way to express yourself. The theme of her music project is evolution, and revolution of self. Nana’s work resonates with the stylistic combinations of multiple genres and the euphoria of a modern, catchy beat.
The “Blessed Life” single invites listeners to be strong and embrace life. The artist expresses the importance in believing in oneself and the power of positive attitude. Nana hopes that this song will encourage people never to give up. She wants her music to become as important and inspiring to listeners as it has been to her as an artist, as she writes:
Had my trials been through it all
Flew too high before the fall
Open up to face my fears
No more time for tears
More about Nana:
Born in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, Nana moved to New York City at the age of six with her family. With her mother who was a classical pianist, Nana began training as a classical pianist herself at age four, going on to perform recitals, attended the Lucy Moses School, and won full scholarships to both Mannes School of Music and Manhattan School of Music.
As a teenager, Nana moved away from the recital scene, becoming more enticed with DJ culture and the costumes and choreography of the 90’s and early 2000’s. She attended Burning Man several times, through which she developed an appreciation to connect with people on an intimate level in a mass medium. She cites New York’s LGBT community and club scene as a significant artistic influence: “It was really the gay community that made me who I am – without them, I wouldn’t have the courage and creativity that I have today.” Influenced by iconic singers like Janis Joplin and Billy Holiday, as well as by DJs such as Junior Vasquez, Jonathan Peters and Danny Tengilia, Nana began composing her own music, combining soul and modern dance beats.
Today, Nana is a well-rounded musician who aims to spread her vision of empowerment and the importance of creative self-expression through song. She recently collaborated with Grammy-nominated producer Kyle Kelso on “Blessed Life”, which she plans to release as part of her debut EP later this year.
