A remarkable new voice has emerged. Growing up in a small town in North Wales, Nia Wyn found solace in old soul records she found in junk shops. Using these muses to craft songs of personal experience, the young artist has captured something vivid and compelling.
Nia’s talent for raw and powerful storytelling, set within a kind of unorthodox, engrossing vocal, immediately marks her out against the backdrop of emerging young female artists coming out of the UK – and conjures a very exciting, defiant charisma that’s both hard and warm as a soul-crossover artist.
All in the space of a year Nia's music was featured on BBC Radio 2’s Blues Playlist, BBC Radio One and BBC Introducing, featured by the influential Fred Perry Subculture, and opened for Paloma Faith and Paul Weller. Tipped by Huw Stephens as one of BBC Introducing's 'ones to watch' in 2019, this year will see big things for Nia.
