She’s Indian and she’s American, sings rock, pop, alternative and her dance music is filled with seductive Indian beats. She writes all her songs and has been performing the New York City bar and lounge circuit for six years and counting. Her name is Nishi, and she is an appealing and rising New York City singer/songwriter who has also made a name for herself as a film and stage actress that moonlights as a lawyer, continuing to work her day job as an in-house defense attorney until she says she hits “the big time.” For this artist, the “big time” may be sooner than she thinks.
In the past year alone, 2011,, this artist has filmed roles in six films, two of which she starred as the lead, performed in four stage productions, two of which were starring roles in Off-Broadway productions (plays and musicals) and this past May, launched the first dance single off her upcoming new dance EP at a Bollywood dance party in Washington D.C. organized by one of her friends, a famous Bollywood filmmaker. In November, starred in an Off-Broadway original musical as the demon goddess Lilith in Angels Giants Monsters, at the Medicine Show Theatre in New York City and is set to continue musical shows at various venues and festivals throughout New York City.
