R&B Singer & Songwriter
Nyk "NYK" Rivera is a contemporary R&B artist from Shreveport, Louisiana, whose career has taken him to Hollywood and beyond. What started as vocals in the church as a young child has grown over the years to include singing, songwriting, acting, producing and even involvement in the business side of the entertainment industry.
NYK is classically trained and has been performing his music since the young age of nine. This ultimately led to him focusing on R&B/pop music, and television which brought him to The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Hollywood, CA in 2012.
After graduation from AMDA, NYK was booked on a summer tour in China as an amateur R&B act under the entertainment company Hong Kong Bohan Asia Party. Those experiences gained him some notoriety, and he was able to parlay that into regular performances at places like The Mint LA, House of Blues, South by Southwest Music Festival, Hollywood Holiday Parade, Los Globos, The Mic LA, Sayers Club and Jazz Night at the W, just to name a few. He aims to bridge the gap of 90’s R&B with a new-age feel.
