Brooklyn-based Vincentian singer-songwriter Nikita “Tynie” Seaton fuses various music genres into her soca style.

According to the Brooklyn-based Chandy Media, Tynie started her musical career as a steel pan player before transitioning into singing and songwriting.

“As a writer, Tynie is known to create a unique space by putting her pen to paper, marrying controversial lyrics and melodic sounds,” said Chandelle De Riggs, chief executive officer of Chandy Media. “Writing songs that relate to her audience plays a pivotal role in her creative niche.”

In 2020, De Riggs said Tynie worked as a radio personality on Caribbean Jam Radio and West Indian Jams Spotlight.

“As a radio personality, she connected with artists and producers from all genres, thus giving her more insight into the entertainment business,” De Riggs said. “Within that same year, she was awarded a certificate of appreciation from Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop for her hard work and dedication to Caribbean culture.

“Not only is Tynie a singer and songwriter, but, this year, she tried something new, venturing into production with Aromatic Tracks,” she added. “Tynie isn’t also just an artist but an entrepreneur. She has her eyelash boutique and line.”

De Riggs said Tynie broke into the Caribbean music entertainment industry in 2019 with her soca songs “Trouble-maker” (Big Dan Riddim) and “Nobody Else” (BigRed HD Productions).

In 2020, De Riggs said she collaborated with Spikey Vybz with a Dancehall song, “Wine Pon It,” produced by Kingsmen Productions.

In 2021, Tynie released another coca track, “New Normal,” off the Deep Colors Riddim (produced by Kingsmen Productions).

“New Normal was inspired during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, reflecting on what many identified as the ‘new normal’ of social interactions,” De Riggs said.

That same year, Tynie released “Rude Gyal Class.” In 2022 , she released a track on the Bright Clouds Riddim, produced by Aromatic Tracks, called “Sweetest Connection.”

The riddim she produced, titled “Soley Levy,” was released this March.

This past April, she released “Doh See Me” off the Thriller Jab Riddim, and a few more tracks set to be released in the coming months,” De Riggs said.

“Music isn’t only her passion; it’s her life,” De Riggs added. “Look out for more from Tynie this year.”
