Niia’s (pronounced “Nye-a”) sound has been described as horror soul, dream pop and future jazz - a sultry R&B trip-hop vibe, underscored with shadowy synth progressions. While studying jazz voice at The New School, she made an early connection with Wyclef Jean and recorded the hit single “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill).” In 2014 she relocated to LA to work on her debut EP, Generation Blue, showcasing her powerful vocals in contrast with a shy yet sultry demeanor. She’s set to release her debut via Atlantic in spring 2017.
Niia has attracted a solid cult following with her rich and soulful vocals and layered lyricism. - Vogue
