Nia Wyn grew up in a small seaside town in North Wales. Despite breathtaking views, she found herself battling with demons relating to isolation, identity and mental health. In local junk shops she sought solace in old soul records discovering the likes of Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan and Marvin
Gaye to hip-hop artists such as Nas and Lauryn Hill. Nia took inspiration from an eclectic range of music, helping her craft her unique story-telling abilities into her songwriting. Blending that with her unique and raw vocals, it instantly puts her out there as one of the top emerging female artists coming out of the UK.
Nia’s music has gathered plays from BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2’s Blues Playlist and Reprezent Radio, been featured by Fred Perry Subculture, CLASH and EARMILK, as well as playlisted by Spotify’s ‘Jazz UK’. Tipped by Huw Stephens as one of BBC Introducing's 'ones to watch' in 2019 after opening for Paul Weller and Paloma Faith, her first EP single Stay in Your Lane made the BBC Introducing hotlist. Off the back of releasing her debut EP 'Love I Can't Ruin', she will be joining Paul Weller on his sold out UK tour in May.
