A remarkable new voice has emerged. Growing up in a small town in North Wales, Nia Wyn found solace in old blues and soul records she found in junk shops. Using these muses to craft similar songs of personal experience, the young artist has captured something vivid and compelling.
What becomes immediately apparent is Nia’s talent for raw and powerful storytelling, set within the kind of unorthodox, engrossing vocal that 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.
The classic blues resonator guitar playing, combined with Nia’s tales of fighting her demons, and the realities and stigmas she comes up against immediately define her as a form of heroine, but one that’s present, relatable. It’s a very difficult thing to create, but Nia just seems to have it. The raw gem of a girl from Wales can’t help but mark herself out as an excitingly different and real new talent.
Speaking on the track, Nia states:
“I wanted to write about what it feels like to be in a really dark space mentally and trying to hide it from everyone because you’re scared of what people will think; it’s me trying to find a way out of the madness.”
