Nia Andrews started her career in the music scene as an internationally touring background singer with heavy-hitters such as Janelle Monae, Lauryn Hill, and Common. She has penned vocals for underground phenoms including Blu, Joi Starr and Shafiq Husayn. Now with her debut EP, “COLOURS”, American singer/songwriter Nia Andrews is ready to take center stage.
From having graced the microphone behind Mary J. Blige or Bruno Mars at the Grammys, to leaving her raw emotion on the mic every month at a speakeasy in Venice or a smoky dive in New York (at the critically- acclaimed live-music event, CHURCH, by founder Mark de Clive-Lowe where Andrews is resident), the Los Angeles native heralds the many colors of her journey on her four-song debut.
Collaborating with Golden Globe nominated songwriter Andrea Remanda and producer Deron Johnson, Colours emerged from a sequence of writing sessions between this dynamic trio of very different writers. Together they have created an emotive, unified sound. An avid fan of Joni Mitchell’s lyricism and the arrangements of Charles Stepney, Andrews’ voice divulges her soul, jazz and folk roots, balanced with the lyrical ingenuity of the greats she reveres.
