Los Angeles singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Niia will be taking the stage at The Ford amphitheater this month October 21 for an intimate night of music at her first LA Phil show. After sharing the stage with the likes of The xx and Jorja Smith, and collaborations with numerous artists like Khruangbin’s Laura Lee and Jazmine Sullivan, Niia will be taking the stage alone to give fans a taste of her beautifully evocative jazz meets pop creations.
She’s also just coming off the release of her stellar new If I Should Die EP a seven-song collection that fully immerses listeners into the deep, dark intimacies of songs like “We Were Never Friends” and “If I Should Die.” Winding her impassioned lyricism around scattered instrumentals, lush electronica, and her own spellbinding vocals, Niia leads you tenderly by the hand through her smokey sojourns into the depths of her feelings of anxiety, doubt, lust, and karma.
Tickets for Niia’s gig at The Ford are already on sale and you can reserve your seat here. Gates open at 6:30 pm with food and drinks allowed inside, Niia even posted a great short video on her Instagram to help you get an idea for how to best experience The Ford.
A lynchpin in New York underground DJ club culture and the LGBTQ movement, Brooklyn-born Ian Isiah (a.k.a. Big Shugga) will be bringing his fusions of modern R&B and radio rap to the amphitheater as Niia’s opener.
