Nia Releases New 7 Track Album "Trauma Tales Vol. 1"

TRAUMA TALES VOL 1 follows NIA as she embraces her own complex identity and relationship to herself, pain, loss, and dependence. The project is a vulnerable and honest portrayal of her experiences.


“This project is my introduction to who I am, who I've been, and who I’m becoming,” says NIA.

 
 

All 7 songs were written, produced, and mixed by NIA, with additional mixing on Tracks 2-4 and 7 by Tito Orjih, mastering on Tracks 1-5, 7 by Tito Orjih, and mastering on Track 6 by Simen Slovang.


NIA is a Philly-based alternative R&B artist born in Queens, New York to Trinidadian parents. She started songwriting at the age of 7 under the influence of artists such as Sade, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, with further influences of Calypso and Soca music. By her junior year of high school, she was already cutting her teeth as a music producer; this was at the same time she started to find her authentic voice.


NIA spent her early childhood in Trinidad & Tobago. She eventually moved back to New York, then to Pennsylvania, later attending Shippensburg University. During her time there, NIA began to perform and collaborate with other artists. In her senior year, she created her record label, Chill Room Records.

 
 

After moving to Philadelphia, she assembled her live backing band, The Chill Room Band. With her 6-piece band, she has graced many stages displaying somber sounds accompanied by enchanting arrangements.
