Opi is a self dependant original artist who doesn’t follow any commercial trends unless it’s her very own. Her music consists of a range of topics aimed at reaching out to her audience personally with lyrics dedicated to personal issues such as heartbreak, freedom, world issues and state of consciousness with the world and people. Some of her greatest accomplishments so far include touring Australia with Shasha Marley an established reggae artist from Ghana; she is also currently working on her album and its release. Later in life, she wants to establish schools in countries with underprivileged children and possibly open up a beauty shop as well. Either way, she wants to educate people.
As a toddler, Rosie used to sing and dance around to Aretha Franklin’s and Paul Simon’s “Graceland” album thereby earning her the nickname “nappy groover.” As time went by, she learned to appreciate other styles of music as she heavily got into Lauryn Hill. This explains her style of music now which is a mixture of acoustic soul, groove, and jazz with some exotica. She has led a very adventurous life traveling to other countries where she experienced other genres such as Canto pop, traditional Hindustani and Bollywood music which actually inspired her to study how to play the “sitar.” She has finally recorded and released her debut EP earlier this year so keep an eye out for that. Rosie also plays in two Sydney bands namely “Old man River” and “The Bakery.”

She has also modeled for well known brands such as JLo, UR fragrance by usher, Nokia, Gazebo, Juicy Couture and many more.
2. Miss Neha
R&B pop soulstress Miss Neha has actually been singing for as long as she can remember. She has always been passionate about music as she even studied music back in her high school days. After a few performances, the feedback she received was great and armed with words of encouragement from various people as well as a desire to creatively challenge herself – she decided to take her talent to the next step and pursue music more seriously. Thus, “Miss Neha the soulstress” was born. Since her humble beginnings, she’s actually now had the pleasure of working with an array of other artists who have boosted her confidence and her skills. She is also heavily inspired by her family and friends and just seeing the reaction of her fans towards her music is what makes her stronger as an artist. At the moment she is working with a talented group of local musicians called ‘Jaden ‘ who are looking to gig around as well as make an EP.
1. Nessa Ramos
Nessa was already singing at the tender age of 4, so it is safe to assume that singing is imbedded in her blood.
Her first public performance was at church at the tender age of 4, she then took piano lesson at the tender age of 5 then at 10 years old she has already written her first song!
Will wonders never cease?
She actually grew up in Sydney’s inner west but after moving to Los Angeles, California back in 2007, her voice was discovered via a jam session. After she graduated from high school she kicked her musical career to fulltime mode by performing every Friday and recording her EP album “Hearts Desire.”
So far she has been fortunate to collaborate with some of the most in demand underground artists such as Gabe Bondoc, Passion, Bryan Keith and many more. Her main inspiration in music is God and her first songs were actually about her childhood experiences and lessons that she’s learnt along the way through church.
Her style of music ranges from RnB soul acoustic to pop, and her songs are always filled with personal “close to heart” stories which she hopes can flow down to her audience and create a similar sense of emotion.
Her ambrosial angelic voice is a great asset which unsurprisingly always manages to astound the crowd. Her future goals include collaborating with more artists and hopefully releasing another EP or a full length album next year.
1. How long have you been singing for and how did you get started?
I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember; I’m always constantly reminded of this with my baby videos. My first public performance was actually at church when I was 4 years old.
2. What is the style of your music?
My music is quite diverse. It ranges from RnB/Soul to Acoustic/Pop. My music can also be described as sweet, calming and “feel-good” which is the style I’m going for.
3. What are some of your greatest accomplishments in your musical career?
My greatest music accomplishments would have to be getting the lead role in my high school musical. I played Maria in the “West-Side-Story” – and all 4 shows it was shown got sold out! I was also able to collaborate with artists such as Passion, Gabe Bondoc and Bryan Keith amongst many others. I would also consider releasing my “Hearts Desire” EP Album as an achievement- There’s something about hearing my originals played in a stranger’s car.
4. What are some of your inspirations in music?
As cliché as this may sound, God is actually my main inspiration. My first songs were written about God and what I’ve learned during my childhood through church until now
5. How do you want your audience to perceive your music, what is your message?
All my songs are fairly personal and close to heart, each song tells a story and has a different personality – similar to a person. I would love my audience to get to know my song and hopefully through my music and its lyrics, the audience would feel whatever it was I was feeling when I originally wrote the song.
6. What are your future goals in and out of the music industry?
My plan for now is to go back to school and study general subjects whilst keeping my career options open. I’m also hoping to collaborate with more different artists and hopefully release another EP or a full length album next year.
