Toured the world, label deal as an artist, session work as a singer and songwriter! My name is Nyk. Based in Los Angeles, Ca. eager and ready to work on your project.
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!

Working with NYK was a great experience! Communication was smooth, fast and very pleasant, and he has provided me with fantastic-sounding material! You can't pass up someone so talented and professional.
Very kind personality and great communication, very easy to work with. I'm very pleased with the product and the quality of the work.
NYK was fantastic to work with. Incredible voice and lyricist, and also showed a ton of creativity in suggesting elements to improve the song. He also kept things super professional and communicated very well throughout the entire project. I would definitely work with him again!
NYK nailed it! Awesome voice, great comunication. Everything works right away. Thank you!
Awesone cooperation... the result was better that I could imagine :-)
It was great working with NYK. His work met my expectation—very high-quality vocal recording, fast response, and easy to communicate. I highly recommended him to new customers.
Another great recorded song by NYK, very professional, and talented. I believe if you need someone to work with on a song, please go to him, definitely worth it.
His voice is charming and he has good manners.
thank you so much
It was an awesome experience working with NYK. I was extremely happy with our finished product. He listened and he sang with so much emotion and passion that he conveyed my lyrics exactly into the story I wanted to deliver. I made the absolute right choice in selecting him to sing my song. He was very kind and patient. He responded quickly, he did everything I asked and offered his expert insight when asked, to make my song even better. I will certainly work with him again in the future.
NYK delivered exactly what we were searching for!
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.
