FEATURED EMERGING ARTIST
LUIZA NIS is a 20 year old singer/songwriter/producer from Brazil. After growing up with music being such a huge part in her life and constantly being surrounded by it, she began to feel the need to make music herself. So, at the age of 14, she taught herself to play the guitar and began recording herself so that she could play it back until she heard something she was satisfied with which, finally happened almost 4 years later. And we are so lucky that it did.
I remember the first time I heard LUIZA on her version of the song "Devil Eyes" from another one of my favorites Hippie Sabotage which she titled "Golden". All it took was 5 seconds of me hearing her voice and I was instantly mesmerized by what I heard and immediately became a fan. I knew that I just stumbled across a voice that in itself was golden. When you listen to her music, you can't help but become hypnotized as it takes you on a melodic journey of ethereal beauty and does the one thing music does best... makes you feel, as you can hear the raw emotion behind it.
When I asked her what music meant to her, her response was "It's something that is naturally a part of my being. I don’t know how or why but it always has been. When I had no friends, or boyfriend or family around me, I had music and it was enough. And my goal is to make other people feel what I feel while I’m listening to a song with a beautiful melody and honest lyrics." This resonated with me a lot as I also feel the same way about music and let me just say, I believe (and am sure I won't be the only one who'll feel this way...) that's a goal she easily accomplishes.
LUIZA is currently focusing on making more original music as she is planning on releasing 6 singles this year the first of which called "The Last Goodbye" will be available on August 27th. I was lucky enough to get be able to get a sneak preview of this song and it is nothing short of amazing so I'm anxiously awaiting it's release.
