Nasim Siddeeq, from Upstate New York by way of Goshen, is an up and coming R&B artist. His grandma discovered him at the early age of 4 while singing “O Happy Day” in the bathtub. She heard him from downstairs and encouraged him to continue singing. He has been singing ever since.
Nasim graduated from S.U.N.Y Albany and then taught six years of high school Spanish in the greater Washington D.C. area. He left his career to pursue music full time back home in New York following the 2016-2017 school year. He felt it was time to take the leap of faith and put all of his time in his God given talent. Right away, Nasim began singing on the streets and subways of N.Y.C. to try and find more opportunities to do what he loves most. After singing with his guitar on 125th Street for a few hours, it came to pass that he was in the right place at the right time.
April 2018, Nasim performed on “Amateur Night at the Apollo” in Harlem, NY! While living in Washington D.C. Nasim performed at the Kennedy Center and was featured on National Television with WUSA9! He has been doing the Sunday brunch performance at the Olde Towne Inn, in Largo Maryland for over a year. Nasim has performed at many different venues all throughout Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Upon releasing his CD, Nasim had a sold out show at Acre121 in D.C.
On April 22nd 2017 Nasim released his first original album, “Singing for my Life”. It contains all live instrumentation and original lyrics. This album has already sold tons of copies and reached fans all over the world including Japan, Korea, Nigeria, Kenya and Australia. The album can be found on iTunes, Googleplay, Amazon, Spotify, Tidal, Youtube and more.
Since taking this leap of faith, Nasim has been featured on WTOP 103.5, he has closed out a show featuring R&B sensation Raheem DeVaughn, and in Summer 2017, he was a participant in the H Street Festival in Washington D.C. Using his background in Spanish, Nasim was also featured on channel Telemundo’s program “Tu Guía” speaking on his career and Latin influences in his music and experience living abroad in Chile, Puerto Rico and Cuba.
