Raised in Tampa, Florida, Nya says “I accidentally fell into love with singing at 16. Voice lessons had initially been a means to an end to get a part in the school musical but quickly became more than that. When I sing, I swear it’s transcendent; I feel free in those precious moments. The burden of my neuroses, of the past, lifts, leaving me at my best.”
The Florida-born, LA-based singer-songwriter Nya has amassed over 2 million streams. Give it a stream.
Elon Musk has cancelled the Twitter deal. The deal was pulled because Musk cannot verify authentic Twitter accounts.
“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk previously said in a tweet. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”
A letter sent by the Telsa CEO’s legal team to Twitter on Friday said that the agreement was being “terminated” due to Twitter allegedly making “false and misleading representations” regarding “fake or spam accounts on Twitter’s platform.” Twitter’s stock price sunk following the statement, dropping 5.3 percent after the market closed.

Look out for Linebeck and the song Bed. The 4-piece dreamy power-pop band from Hamilton, ON formed right before the crazy pandemic.

Influenced by Lennon-McCartney and Max Martin, Linebeck’s songwriting is full of intention but not lacking in honesty, once described by a fan as “a dreamy version of Linkin Park”.

Before forming the band in 2019, Jon Tyler Wiley spent the better part of a decade as a guitarist for playing with Melodime, touring with Stephen Kellogg, and Sister Hazel.
Wiley says, “This song came to me while sitting in traffic in Washington DC. At the time, I was working for a music program in Bethesda, Maryland, where it would take me an hour to get there and three hours to get home due to rush hour. I was writing a lot of sad, “What am I doing with my life” songs, sitting on I-495 moving 7 miles per hour. I had these lyrics for months, but I wasn’t happy with the song itself until the guitar riff showed up. Playing all the instruments on the record was a fun challenge, but the recording the keyboards in this song were a joyous experience. It made the song fun, despite the desperate lyrics.”
