Phenyemanal, The EP


Feeling a bit camera shy


"This is why I like the nights we tape shows," states Ms. Nyema (pronounced Nee-ma), to no one in particular, as she reaches for a slice of pizza with chicken and green peppers."These are the nights I don't have to worry about cooking!" she says, and draws a few laughs and nods of agreement from guests and crew members on the set of her TV talk show Welcome To The Stoop. As she continues the light banter with the crew, the twenty-something songstress wonders out loud what song to sing for the show's opening sequence, which always opens with her treating the viewing audience with her heavenly sounds. She has gentleness about her as she easily connects with the guests on the set of The Stoop, as if they had been friends for years. "Hosting a TV show is not as easy as it looks, but because we have such positive and talented guests,
they make me feel comfortable chatting with them, as if we were really on my front stoop"

On her debut project, Phenyemanal, she displays the soul of an Eryka Badu or India Arie, the power and conviction of a Jill Scott and Chaka, and the sexiness of Toni Braxton or Beyonce. Writing all of the songs on the CD, she is poised to be introduced to the world as a young lady full of life's experiences in love, laughter, sorrow and victory. "Writing and singing are like therapy for me". The songs on her project definitely put those writing and singing skills on full display. "Going On" is poised to be a new women's anthem; with it's Spanish guitars, "Desiree's Dance" is a beautiful track that will have the listener in a trance. Don't be surprised if a new generation of babies are born to the slow grooves "Phenomenal" and “Love So Easy”, or when the emotion-filled "Perfect World", becomes a cover tune for artists and bands for years to come.

Born Nyema Luenne, (pronounced Lu-wenn), in Monrovia, Liberia, Ms. Nyema moved to New York as a teen. She discovered her love for music and entertainment at the tender age of 3. "I sang my first solo not having anything else in mind but making my grandmother proud of me" Ms Nyema states. From singing solos in church, to performing at the Apollo, Wilson's, Nell's, an off-Broadway play, hosting the Washington DC based TV show, and preparing for acting roles in short films, Ms Nyema's career is definitely going full steam ahead. "Right now, I just feel blessed to have crossed paths with some really amazing people, who are helping me live a dream," says Ms. Nyema as she is being mic'ed up for the show's open "I can still say I am making my grandmother proud, while I am also bringing something for the whole world to feel!"

In addition to performing in various venues in and around Washington DC, Ms Nyema is beginning to schedule shows at Universities and Colleges along the East Coast. As if she is not busy enough, Ms Nyema is currently writing an e-book version of her CD Phenyemanal. "Writing a book is a little different than writing a song" she says "but the creative process is still the same. So the same inspiration that helped me write the songs, will be the same inspiration drawn to write the e-book". Ms Nyema and band are beginning to book shows for the Fall semester at schools along the East Coast and Midwest, and hopes to travel out West too.

The statement "Neo Soul appeal, with an old-school soul feel. More than just music, it's an experience" truly captures Ms Nyema.
