Nisa is a solo project from New York City-based musician Nisa Lumaj. She’s now based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, but was born and raised by Albanian immigrants in a neighborhood near Morningside Heights, after moving from The Bronx at age 10. Because her parents spoke English as a second language, she wasn’t exposed to American pop or rock music until she moved to Manhattan. As a byproduct of spending her teen years in the city’s most metropolitan borough, she found herself around a circle of musicians interested in more contemporary music than what she’d previously been exposed to at home. In 2023, Nisa was signed to Tender Loving Empire Records and released a double single titled Currents / Vertigo.
