KARINA NISTAL is a vibrantly charismatic singer and songwriter, recognized for her extensive range and diverse collaborations. With unique musical stylings evoking the best of Jazz, Soul, Reggaetón, Rap, and Dance, KARINA is a talent to watch with growing crossover appeal in both the English and Spanish speaking markets worldwide.

 

 

A Houston native captivated by old school Hip-Hop, Soul, Jazz, and R&B since early childhood, KARINA’s Cuban/Mexican heritage and Texas upbringing gives her music an unforgettable edge that’s neither traditional nor contemporary, but a catchy evolution of the familiar that’s wholly her own.

 

 

After honing her talents as a featured artist on numerous Dance and Hip-Hop singles, KARINA introduced the world to the genre of ReggaeTron – a cutting-edge fusion of Electro & Reggaetón – with her inaugural LP NISTYLE, from STARLIGHT BEATS.

 

 

Following the critically acclaimed success of her debut album, KARINA returned to her musical roots with NISTALGIA, a sophomore effort published by L.O.V.E. RECORDS, with a uniquely fresh Latin Fusion take on Soul, Hip-Hop and Dance.

 

 

With a meteoric rise to musical fame and no sign of slowing, fans and critics agree that KARINA NISTAL’s hotly-anticipated LP JENE SAIS QUOI will definitively cement her reputation as the Once and Future IT GIRL of the Hurban Dance Movement.

Tell us when you are most comfortable to sing.

I am most comfortable to sing after 10:00 AM when I’ve had my first cup of coffee. 🙂

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you like to write about in your lyrics.

I love to write about L.O.V.E. (Living on Various Elements) everyday situations, everyday people and falling in love.

.

.

.

 

State your most emotional song and the reason.

It’s called “Without You” and it’s about losing someone from the earthly realm. Someone you had in your life and loved passed away and left an emptiness with you.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the process in finding the right sound for your vocals.

I will write the lyrics and decide what melodies fit with the track. I normally use a slight reverb to record then I listen to various mixes until the engineer and I are satisfied with the delivery.

.

.

.

State the challenges you have faced as a musician/artist.

Ahhh, where do I begin? First, writer’s block can be a tough hurdle. Recording several takes to try to nail a perfect vocal. Sitting with the producers or engineers to decide which mix sounds best and what levels need to come up or down before the final release.

 

 

Then figuring out how to fund the project properly and how much you’ll need. The last four projects have been independently released and we have used crowdfunding which has been an exceptional response but also A LOT of work to execute. And when you’re near to the end when you should be celebrating, you have to take the time to find the right venue for your release, organize your live set or musicians to play the tracks, and promote it like crazy to have a decent turnout to make a great impression of the new songs. By the end of it (if you’re lucky) you’ve sold several copies of the new album at the show or online. Afterward, you continue to promote the record.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on how artists should raise funds for their music projects.

I’ve had three successful Kickstarter campaigns. With Kickstarter, you can’t go wrong if you are interactive and stay on top of promoting your campaign to everyone you come across.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the present state of your fan base.

I am not sure if I should consider it my fan base because I feel like they are my friends. I feel as if I know the people who support me and have contributed to my cause. If I don’t know them personally, I would like to meet them to express my appreciation for their support.

.

.

.

Tell us if you consider sharing your music with the world or a specific geographical zone.

Definitely! I consider my music World Music even if it doesn’t have your traditional World Music “sound.”

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the genre of music.

I consider it to be Latin Hip-Hop/Soulful House.

.

.

.

 

State the title of your best song and share the link.

I’ve heard that this song is my anthem: “Make it Happen”

.

.

.

 

Tell us your greatest supporter.

My mom, I don’t know what I’d do without her. She is my best friend.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the artists that have impacted you.

Gloria Estefan, Celia Cruz, Selena, Teena Marie, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, The Doors, Lauryn Hill, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, many more I’m sure.

.

.

.

 

Describe the listeners that listen to your music.

I think they are people that are 90’s nostalgic, people who love RnB, Latin Hip-hop, and Dance music.

.

.

.

 

Tell us many ways of generating revenue as an artist.

I sell as much merchandise as I can. I also teach voice lessons, consult upcoming artists looking for marketing help or advice, and market my band for festivals and shows.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the future of the music business.

Hopefully, it’s helping artists make a living off their royalties the way they do in other countries. It’s becoming DIY with creating and designing your own brand, doing your marketing, management, and basically wearing all the hats to drive your own vehicle.

 

 

Getting signed by a major label and getting their backing feels like a thing of the past.

.

.

.

Discuss the gains and losses of technology to the music business.

I saw the decline in music sales after Napster. The benefit was that if your song was getting ripped you were getting tons of exposure.

 

 

 

The drawback was that if you could get one dollar for every time it was downloaded, you’d probably have a decent check or a small fortune. It’s a double-edged sword. If that’s what it took to get you noticed get your performance chops up, organize a tour, and go circulate your music even if it’s live.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you still make CDs of your release.

Yes! Matter of fact I learned a small lesson on that with this last release. I pressed vinyl and people still wanted CDs! I made sure not to press too many like I had in the past and I did a small run of 100 in a basic 2-sided pocket. I’ve been selling the latest CDs with the previous CD’s.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

The ‘Good Sound Intro’ is an introduction to the album as it is an introduction to me. I have realized that with every album I am introduced to more people and I wanted them to get a feel for who I am. “I’ve got plenty of layers to me” and while you may not be able to peel them all away, I’m a confident softy at the core of it. “I want to give love to those surrounding me.”

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.

My artist name is my birth name. I see no reason to change the name my parents gave me. I’m grateful to them for instilling the love, culture, and pride they gave me. That includes my name.

 

 

The album title “Je Ne Sais Quoi” I felt would be a good title to describe my sound “I don’t know what.” I have that certain “Je Ne Sais Quoi” I want you to listen for yourself.

KARINA NISTAL

A gifted vocalist, Karina exudes a vibrant charisma that carries over from her bilingual musings into her self-assured rhymes. From Reggaeton, Latin fusion, soul, electronic, house and hip hop, Karina’s sound defies easy definition. There is a very fine line between poetry and rap, but it is one that Karina interconnects seamlessly. Between 2004 and 2019, Karina has released five albums…
