Adina Nyree - the woman
Singer/Songwriter Adina Nyree is Poetry... living in Soul... growin' up Funk... mellowing in Blues. Her musical style has been likened to that of M'shell Ndegeocello, Jill Scott, and Floetry. She is the former creative writer and performing artist in William B. Johnson's (Lil Billy Ent.) theatrical production, Drumadics(Drum-Addicts) which debuted at the Lambs Theater on Broadway in 2005 and then ran for a short season at the American Theater of Actors in 2006. She was a member of the Boston-Lizard Lounge 2004 and 2005 National Poetry Slam teams. She has been featured at such venues as Simmons College Black Women's Symposium 2005 and Women's Month Poetry Jam 2006, United Nation's Church Center-Children's Rights Declaration Forum 2006, Brockton Public Library Poetry Series, as well as elementary schools, urban youth programs and churches around the nation. She is also featured on the 2006 season of P.L.A.C.E.S on Boston Educational Access and in the Yale Peabody Museum's Poems on the Road to Justice DVD (2006). Her debut fusion album of poetry and soul music, Certified Organic, was released in late 2009. In later years, Adina opened for R&B artists Melba Moore and Dwele. She is currently working on her sophomore album, Stone, Flesh and Love.
