One of her first songs, "And When I Die", was sold to Peter, Paul & Mary, since she was under the management of Artie Mogull (she also recorded her debut ''More Than A New Discovery'', which was practically ignored). Later she got rid of him when she sued him due to her being taken and protected by David Geffen. She performed at the Monterey Pop Festival, but the performance was strangely mixed in terms of reception; Nyro herself believed that she had been massively booed, but filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker, who documented the festival, found no such negative reaction in his footage of her performance.

Her legacy and influence is acknowledged by artists such as Music/ToddRundgren (who wrote a song about her, "Baby, Let's Swing", and assisted in the recording of ''Mother's Spiritual'', being also great friends with each other), Music/JoniMitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Music/EltonJohn, and Music/SteelyDan, among others. Vocalists Judy Kuhn and Audra [=McDonald=] and jazz pianist-arranger Billy Childs have recorded respective tributes covering Nyro's music, and at least one music theory scholar has conducted extensive analysis proving Nyro to be the link from the Great American Songbook compositional style to the 1960's.

* BiTheWay: Nyro was romantically involved with both men and women over the course of her lifetime, and her work reflects as much. Her heralded 1968 album ''Eli and the Thirteenth Confession'' notably includes both "Emmie" and "The Confession"; the former is a love song about a woman, while the latter is one about a man.
