Enjoy this new EP by LA based singer/songwriter, Nia Andrews. She possesses a very clear voice with some serious soulful and jazzy undertones. Listen to this on the road on the way to work or while cleaning up on Saturday. This project was very well produced and should spawn at least 1 underground hit. Honestly, we liked all of the tracks on this one. If this artist continues to work at this level, we will certainly be hearing more from her. This is a new fresh sound that should be heard. Kudos!

Nia Andrews Bio:
With a disparate range of influences and a reverence for crafted storytelling, Los Angeles-born singer/songwriter nia andrews embodies a disarmingly honest sound. An emotive voice lilts with her jazz and soul roots and high-caliber lyricism divulges the greats she reveres: Joni Mitchell, Prince Her live shows penetrate audiences with a musical style that paints a dreamy world; its sometimes audacious, at times moody, and always unexpected.
nia andrews has been a maverick from her earliest of years, balancing a love of music and writing. As a youngster she absorbed jazz, soul and hip-hop, learning to play piano by ear. The self-taught musician was sponsored by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, hiding the fact she couldnt read notes. This incited an inner battle between her raw talent and lack of classical training until she finally succumbed to the latter rival, hastily abandoning music altogether. FULL BIO
