After making a name for herself in the industry in an impressively short amount of time, the Houston-based queen of rhythm & blues Tanya Nolan is back with a new release. Her latest effort gives an exciting fresh twist to an old track. The soulful hit “No Pressure”, that amassed over one million views on YouTube and granted Tanya participation at the 2019 Grammy Awards, is now available as a remix. This new twist enriches the song with some fresh techno vibes that will definitely make you get up and dance, all without lessening the empowering message of love expressed in the lyrics.
Tanya’s vocals surely represent the element that stands out the most. Bright, crisp, powerful, and full-rounded, her voice has nothing to envy to the great Soul, Pop, and R&B singers of the past, from Whitney Houston to Diana Ross, just to name a few. While it shines particularly well in the higher register, she can also deliver warmer tones, keeping the low-middle range with no effort at all. Her technique is so solid that even the least music-savvy listener will be able to appreciate the degree of her vocal preparation and the intensity of her interpretation.
The production of the song is curated by Bruce Bang, who also worked at Tanya Nolan’s self-titled debut album. In this remix of “No Pressure”, Bang is able to recreate the perfect Nineties’ electro-dance feel, enriched by a more contemporary beat that, however, leaves enough room to Tanya’s mighty vocals. In this genre of music, the risk to overdo it is just behind the corner, especially when it comes to remixes. This time, however, the producer respected the natural power of Nolan’s vocals and songwriting, maintaining the soulful vibes of the original version, adding only the right amount of techno feel, enough to make the song a bold and powerful statement you can dance to.
Tanya Nolan is a new musical sensation in and outside Austin. Her music was featured in Billboard Magazine twice. She has shared the stage with many influential musicians and personalities. She was also nominated for the 2020 NAACP Image Awards. Most of all, she keeps releasing music that highlights her exceptional vocal talent and her impressive songwriting abilities. Her most successful tracks include “Love Ya”, featuring Kirko Bangz, “All For You”, and “Rush”. Each release is accompanied by compelling videos that visually represent Tanya’s aesthetic and recurring themes, often presenting LGBT scenarios and stories that invite to freedom and acceptance. After all, love is love, and this is probably the core hidden behind each and every one of Tanya’s song.
