Nesha Deshaun is the true definition of ‘NDpendent’. Her motto…

“Never let them tell you what you can’t do.” ~ Nesha Deshaun

Born and raised from the musical backgrounds of Memphis, Tn. – this independent, multi-talented artist began singing and performing at the age of 6, while writing and producing her own tracks by the age of 11 years old. She soon realized her talents as a writer after winning the “PROLINE/ Just for Me” music jingle contest in 1998.

Her professional experience began when she attended Memphis’ Stax Music Academy at the adolescent age of 14 – where she learned the art of show production, performance, vocal arrangement, and harmony. Graduating out of the academy and Germantown High School, she moved to Atlanta, Ga – where she was enrolled as a student at Clark Atlanta University. She has, since then, written for well known music artists like, Teanna Taylor, Tiffany Taylor, & many more. Nesha has been recognized – and had began to work with many industry A&Rs, managers, producers, and various major and independent artists – for her work. After being in a complicated contract with former celebrity manager, Miami Mike of PTE {Palm Trees Entertainment}, she was finally free from bondage. She was now able to be the independent artist that she’d longed for, due to being in a two-girl duo r&b group for years.

Following the buzz of her debut project “Best Kept Secret”– written, mixed, and recorded by her – she has been nominated for the Memphis Hip Hop Awards for “Slept on Artist of the Year” and “Female RnB Artist of the Year”. She also managed to land another award for her amazing project, in the Atlanta Hip Hop Awards – for “Slept on Artist of the Year”.

In 2018, she was discovered by Hip Hop legend Jermaine Dupri (CEO of SoSoDef Rec.), as a writer, and has since went on to write for a multitude of artists. Also in 2018, she started a production studio, called NDpendent, LLC – which was invested with every dollar she earned from streams and selling cds at local gas stations.

In 2019, her success has grown as a loveable engineer and songwriter. She has released popular hit smashes like “Sofa King” and “Alexa Play – from her latest project “I Am ND” – now available everywhere music is streamed and sold digitally. It’s safe to say “the secrets out”! The NDpendent inspiration is well on her way to becoming a household name.

Now in 2020, she has sealed the deal – with an official contract with SONY/ATV, and songwriter for JD. Her dreams are finally coming into fruition as she steps into a new light with a new sense of gratefulness and a new level of hunger in the music industry!
