Nyree Waters

Nyree Waters is a visual artist, singer + songwriter in the early stages of her journey as a producer. Born in Merseyside + growing up on the coast of North Wales, Nyree studied Illustration in Edinburgh + developed her visual style before recently moving to Manchester to learn how to produce her own music. A lover of lyrics, Nyree uses poetry in both her artwork + music as a way of processing heavy thoughts/feelings with a gentle touch. At the heart of everything she makes is a deep desire to be honest + vulnerable in order to connect with her own emotions + those of her audience.

“I’m looking forward to connecting + collaborating with other female musicians + the strong, skilled women facilitating the project. Andrea’s visual language, Caro C’s intuitive process + Bishi’s audio-visual performances all resonate deeply with me + the direction I want to explore within my own music. It feels important to seek out support from people who not only have the technical knowledge I want to learn from, but also happen to understand the complexity of what it’s like to be a woman within this particularly gender-skewed industry.”

Nyree recommends…
I made a playlist in honour of the songs that got me through 2019, so I’ve been giving that a farewell blast. As a collection, it’s like a musical journal of everything I’ve felt this year. A lot of these tracks were new releases – I think I just felt drawn to listen to music that I didn’t already associate with past memories, places and people. These were some of the songs that held me whilst I tried to be present + helped me feel what I needed to feel. Have a listen…
