Nasim Siddeeq is an R&B artist originally from upstate New York. After graduating from SUNY at Albany, he taught high school Spanish for six years in the greater Washington D.C. area. He left teaching to pursue a full-time career in music, starting out as a street and subway performer. Since his "leap of faith," Siddeeq has performed at venues throughout New York; Washington, D.C.; Virginia, and Maryland, including a longtime gig at the Olde Towne Inn in Largo, MD. He has performed at the Apollo Theater, the Kennedy Center, and the H Street Festival in Washington, D.C. He was featured on WTOP 103.5 and National WUSA9 and on Telemundo’s program "Tu Guía," where he used his background in Spanish to describe Latin influences on his music and his experiences living in Chile, Puerto Rico, and Cuba. He released his first original album, "Singing for my Life," in 2017.
