Nia Wyn grew up in a small North Wales town, finding contentment in old soul records she found in junk shops. Discovering the likes of Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan and Marvin Gaye to hip-hop artists such as Nas and Lauryn Hill. It was these artists that Nia took inspiration from, 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.
The past eighteen months have been an interesting ride for Nia Wyn, it has seen her open for the likes of Paloma Faith and Paul Weller, announced as part of the ‘First Fifty’ for Great Escape Festival 2019, and being tipped by Huw Stephens as one of BBC Introducing’s ‘ones to watch’ in 2019. Nia has also garnered wide support across BBC Introducing, 6Music and BBC Radio One.
With this single being the next step in Nia Wyn’s journey and a debut EP to come in the next few months, it is another example of why she is such an exciting talent.
