Rhythm Rave Radio’s Artist of the Month July- Queen Nyoka

Written by on July 1, 2014


Queen Nyoka is a rising star recording artist hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area and the first album release being offered from the Sonic Chimera Recordings label catalog – featuring “The Bay’s Finest” music artists.

Her sophisticated neo-soul vocal style includes elements of R&B, hip hop, reggae and world beat and her unique songs capture meaningful messages which are delivered both true and compelling.

Queen Nyoka’s vocals, grooves and production on the album are raw, smooth and at times bass-heavy. The songs are thought provoking and you will want to groove, chill, dance, snap your fingers and bop your head as you feel the beat. Her delicate phrasing sets her apart from the many cookie-cutter artists being released today. Her recording years span over a decade and though many demos have been produced by her in the past this album will be her first debut full release appropriately titled “Renaissance Woman”.

Her mature, emotional, philosophical, sociopolitical writing style is original, genre-busting refreshing and the entire album offers a range of wonderfully produced tracks which also welcomes the outstanding vocals of Andre Jones from the beloved San Francisco band The Latrells, harmonies of Sweet T and smooth vocals of Bluezy.

Queen Nyoka is driven by her desire to create and share music for the people of the World, not just for the money and not at all the fame, it’s pride and self-empowerment that provokes her anthems. Her talent is real, it’s true and you just can’t help but enjoy the experience of listening to her.
