A Chat With Nia Andrews (AUDIO)

Art & Music, Featured, In & Around LA

Nia Andrews is quite the enchantress.

I had the good fortune of befriending Nia in college, the period where she was still honing her magic and though in its infancy, it was still pretty potent. Nia was the type of woman that traveled with a cloak of “feel good” wrapped around her, a feeling that left a lasting impression, and I recall a sense of bliss whenever we were in a common space. We connected on our shared affinity of the written word, music, art and life.

Fast forward a decade. Reconnecting with Nia put me in front of a woman who had come into her own. The magic remained, but had now evolved into something unsurprisingly extraordinary. Nia, always a writer, planted her feet in songwriting, took root there and her talent as both a writer and a singer has the attention of the music industry. On the horizon will be her greatest songwriting achievement to date: four tracks on international music artist, Mark de Clive-Lowe‘s latest album, Renegades. A sample of Nia’s work on this beautifully crafted project whets any good music lover’s appetite and makes one wonder what’s to come on Nia’s own album that is currently in the works.

Further, Nia and Mark co-host the Los Angeles event, CHURCH, a must-attend for any real music head. With Nia before the mic and Mark behind it , CHURCH is an enchanting live music experience that is incomparable to any other in the city. Deep into the night, CHURCH turns into a cold jam session/body rock – and you never know which of your favorite artists might end up in the house and on stage.

Born and raised in Inglewood, CA, Nia manages to handle this full plate while also maintaining the role of mother -  and speaks to us about how her life journey has led her to this place, the projects that she’s currently involved in and what’s next for her. Listen up!
