Nancy Silva Project (NSP) is an original Alternative Rock band from San Antonio, Texas. NSP is fronted by the charismatic and petite Nancy Silva, who rocks a Gibson Les Paul and sings with such passion and emotion that her lyrics come to life. Ian Morales of Austin Vida stated “Flying under the San-Antonio-band radar is Nancy Silva Project, headed by the guitar slinging, songwriting San Antonio-bred talent Nancy Silva. Silva has a sultry, seductive and brooding appearance that is met with a surprising shyness. Her outward stage presence speaks louder than she does.” NSP is a very active, hard-working band and has played with some great national acts, such as Apocalyptica, Papa Roach, Flyleaf, Chevelle, Lit, 10 Years, Drowning Pool, My Darkest Days, Kittie, Ryan Cabrera, Fair to Midland and Karnivool. Jim Beal, Jr. from My SA Entertainment stated “Singer, songwriter and guitar slinger Silva makes quite a visual impact with her sexy schoolgirl outfits, but don’t make a mistake and sell her short, Silva and her band could rock just as hard if Silva wore burkas.”

NSP was formed in 2008 by Nancy Silva and Jesse Avila and was originally a 3-piece band. They played incessantly and toured the West Coast, playing at the world famous Whisky-A-GoGo and The Cat Club (owned by famed Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats) on the legendary Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California. The tour continued through southern California and ended in Las Vegas, Nevada. Guitarist Rai dela Cruz joined NSP in 2010.

Inspired by her brother, who played guitar, Nancy began playing guitar and performing at a very young age and knew that this was her calling from the very first time she stepped on a stage. “Music has always been a huge part of my family’s life. My older brother Daniel played guitar in a rock band and taught me how to play when I was 9 years old. Shortly thereafter, I began to sing and when my brother’s band had shows at bars, I would perform during their breaks. I soon began to write my own songs and I joined a band at a recreation center and performed at many events.”

Nancy's shy demeanor and stage presence, along with surreal vocals, heavy guitar sound and solid rhythm section is what gives NSP an original unique sound and powerful stage persona. NSP released their new album "A Part of Me" in March 2013. All songs are written by Nancy Silva and produced by Bryan Scott from “Cult to Follow” formerly of “Union Underground.”

NSP is a band who plays with authority and gives everything to their live performances. The passion and energy NSP exudes live is something one must see. Nancy's live performances are powerful and truly full of emotion. Nancy has stated in an interview “We want to play as much as possible so that people can hear our music all over the world and there's no better feeling than playing live and making new friends and fans.” Nancy has always been truly grateful and really cares about her fans. She has said on many occasions, “We are very thankful for everyone’s support and for the success we have had so far.” Be sure to check out a Nancy Silva Project (NSP) show and pick up a copy of their new album "A Part of Me."
