Empress Nelly

Empress Nelly is an Indie Artist & Songwriter whose style of music incorporates elements of Roots & Culture, Dancehall Reggae, RNB and Neo - Soul to form a melodic fusion of smooth, uplifting, empowering, engaging, loving and passionate vibes. Empress Nelly was born (Janelle Fisher) in 1982 in St Louis Mo, USA. Empress Nelly’s music is not only uplifting and empowering but is also engaging and passionate about what we go through as people in today’s society.

On March 17 2015, Empress Nelly officially released her first single “Longing for You”. Since then, she has also released other singles like “You and I”, “Out of Control” and her latest promotional single “Loving you”. She is currently hard at work in the studio recording a few more new songs which would complete the line up on her first extended play (EP). Empress Nelly is also planning some promotional activities in the Fall of 2018/early 2019 following the release of her EP.

For Empress Nelly, her journey into the exciting world of music began at the age of 3 as she was heavily influenced by her parents’ musical performances throughout her childhood. Their love for music was passed down to her, especially as her mother has been an R&B vocalist for over 25 years while her dad has played the bass guitar and other musical instruments for over 30 years. Both still perform and tour today. At the age of 3, Empress Nelly began to mimic the way her parents performed on stage in return; this inspired her to tap into her natural born talent as a musician and vocalist. Some of Empress Nelly’s other musical influences have come from Artists such as Anita Baker, Queen Ifrica, Nina Simone, Bob Marley, Maxwell, Beres Hammond, Dezarie, Garnett Silk, Sister Carol, Dennis Brown, Lisa Fischer, Jill Scott, India Arie, Lauryn Hill and Angela Winbush.

As a young adult, Empress Nelly aspired to become an advocate for youth who found themselves trapped and suffering in drug and crime riddled communities. This inspired her to go off to college in search of education in the field of Child Psychology and Clinical Social Work. However, after obtaining both undergrad and graduate degrees in the above fields, she came to realization that ultimately her love for music would be the vehicle that would drive her to reach out to the younger generation, especially young girls and women, inspiring them through her music to have a positive outlook on life and empowering them to strengthen their self-worth. Being a wife and mother of three little ones, this is especially important to her as their role model.

One Love!!!!
