MUSIC: 11:11 x NËSTRÄ

A fresh face (and voice) has emerged in the PNW RnB scene.

Meet Nësträ, the 19 year old singer and songwriter who has me crossing my fingers with his latest single, 11:11. His SoundCloud discography is limited, containing just 4 tracks, yet each one possesses an overall smooth and poised feel. The relaxed confidence in his crooning assures us that his content is near and dear to him.

In his latest, Nësträ sends a few wishes up in hopes to woo a love interest who is resisting what he has to offer. He continues to urge her to be his, painting the picture of the two of them in harmony.

The serene soundscapes backing his coaxing vocals were brought to us by two Soulection famed producers. Los Angeles based Esta graced us with his mellow EP, Luci back in March. Seattle's Sango gave us a peek of his upcoming album In The Comfort Of last month with the release of short film South EndNeedless to say, these two know what they're doing and it's apparent in this joint production which they orchestrated oh so charmingly. It is a perfect match for the young singer who is set to compete in Sound Off, MoPOP's annual 21-and-under music face off. Read more about Sound Off and see the full lineup here.

After hearing 11:11, I'd love to hear a full length project from Nësträ . His debut EP, NÜNÖ  is set to drop some time this year, so expect to hear about it here. Until then, check out his latest track and it's visual below.

PS: Don't forget to make a wish at 11:11.
