Nia

IF JAZZ, CLASSIC HIP HOP, AND SOUL WERE MIXED IN A BLENDER AND FLAVORED WITH TRUTH, SINCERITY, AND CREATIVITY… IT WOULD BE THE BEST CONCOCTION CREATED TO DESCRIBE NIA’S INCOMPARABLE STYLE.



BORN STEPHANIE N HEARON, NIA, A SWAHILI LANGUAGE TERM FOR PURPOSE, WAS A CHILDHOOD NICKNAME AMONG HER PEERS THAT “JUST STUCK” UNWITTINGLY AT THE TIME, BUT THE FUTURE WOULD REVEAL ITS RELEVANCE. MUSIC WAS THE PURPOSE ALL ALONG. INSPIRED BY JAZZ AND THE ORGIN OF HIP HOP CULTURE, NIA JOURNALED HER THOUGHTS DAILY, WHICH TRANSITIONED TO POETRY, WHICH SPARKED MELODIES AND CREATED SONGS. AS CLICHÉ AS IT ITS, NIA RECALLS SINGING SINCE “BEFORE SHE CAN REMEMBER”. IT CAME NATURALLY AS THE INFLUENCE OF MUSIC WAS ALL AROUND HER FROM HER YOUTH.



THE WARMTH AND CLARITY OF HER VOCAL GIFTS ARE JUST AN ADDED BONUS TO HER CREATIVE AND DESCRIPTIVE WRITING THAT APPEALS AND RELATES TO ANYONE WHO EXPERIENCES IT. SHE HAS AN INTERESTING ABILITY TO CREATE BRIGHT, SOULFUL ARRANGEMENTS OVER THE MOST UNEXPECTED MUSICAL COMPOSITIONS. HER BOLD APPROACH TO SHARE HER UNCOMMON STYLE LANDED HER SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK DIRECTLY IN THE INDUSTRY EARLY ON IN HER CAREER. SHE CREDITS BEING “BLESSED” TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WORK WITH SUCH ARTISTS AS: NO I.D, LUPE FIASCO, KANYE WEST, MALIK YUSEF, RHYMEFEST, TARREY TORAE, ROY AYERS, CHICO DEBARGE, ELZHI, AND J.IVY AND MORE.



YOU MAY NOTICE HER MOST HOWEVER, FROM HER TIME SPENT AS HYPE GIRL AND VOCALIST TO LEGENDARY HIP HOP PIONEER, MC LYTE. AN EXPERIENCE THAT WAS SET TO BE A SINGLE PERFORMANCE AND RESULTED IN A YEARS LONG EXPERIENCE OF TOURING WITH MC LYTE WHO CREDITS HER AS “AN EXCEPTIONAL VOCALIST AND PERFROMER”.



HER MUSIC IS TRULY PERSONAL AND SHE BARES HER SOUL WITH EACH NOTE THAT SHE SINGS. BY BRINGING AN ECLECTIC AND “OUT THE BOX” FLAVOR TO EVERY MUSICAL ENDEAVOR CAUSES HER TO STAND OUT IN A VARIETY OF ARENAS AND CONNECT TO AN ARRAY OF AUDIENCES.



NIA IS MUSIC ON PURPOSE. AND SHE DOESN’T TAKE THAT LIGHTLY. THROUGH A SERIES OF DEEP SPIRITUAL REVELATIONS, IT IS THROUGH HER RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THAT SHE FOUND THE ABILITY TO MAKE HER MUSIC MATTER. FROM THE CHURCH HOUSE TO THE JAIL CELLS, TO THE STREETS AND SOME OF THE NATIONS MOST NOTABLE VENUES AND SHOWCASES, NIA HAS AND CONTINUES TO SHARE HER SOUND WITH THE MASSES. SHE USES HER MUSIC TO SPEAK HONESTY, EXPERIENCE, TRUTH, HOPE, AND LOVE IN SUCH A CREATIVE AND POWERFUL WAY. A METHOD THAT IS OFTEN LESS TRAVELED IN THE QUEST OF MUSICAL PURSUITS.



“MUSIC IS POWERFUL, SO THOSE WHO CREATE SHOULD MAKE POWERFUL MUSIC, SIMPLE.”



HER DEBUT PROJECT, “NEXT IN LINE” WAS RELEASED IN 2006. AN INDEPENDENTLY RELEASED PROJECT THAT INTERMIXED HIP HOP, SOUL, AND JAZZ WHILE SPEAKING ON LIFE, LOVE, AND REAL TALK. SHE MOVED ON TO RELEASE A SELF-TITLED EP IN 2011, AND CURRENTLY, "BREAK" IN SUMMER OF 2016
