Tyra Nurmi is singer-songwriter and performer in the Berkshires. She has taken advantage of musical opportunities starting at an early age by singing in her church, participating in the chorus high school and singing in competitions. Although singing has always been apart of her life, she has cultivated a true passion for writing lyrics in the last few years. She has utilized technology to record and mix her vocals with instrumentals using computer software. Although her genre has varied between an R&B and alternative sound, she describes her newer music as an indie soul with an influence of R&B. She is currently working on her new album “Bold Survivor” and recording with an independent label: Three Libra Records in the Igniter Recording Studio with Danny Nadeau and Lawrence Botto. She plans to move to Boston next year to study music therapy and pursue her dreams as a solo artist. She hopes to one day have her own jazz band with whom she can travel and perform.
