Nia Pearl brings a fresh, soulful yet eccentric style to her look and sound. Liberty introduces us to her beautiful vocal range and her ability to give a soothing soulful sound with a youthful and emotive feel. On her debut single Nia Pearl says “music has always been my first love and I am very excited to be finally releasing my new song”. She worked with renowned producer Luyanda Madope and SAMA award winning artist and producer Kabomo who adds a poetic and hip hop element to the song. Nia Pearl hopes South Africa loves the single as much as she does.
Born and bred in Mthatha, 26-year-old Nia Pearl grew up in a family of six sisters and was raised by a loving father in a close-knit family. She describes her sisters as creative and like friends as they share a very close bond and are all in the respective creative industries. Her close bond with her sisters has inspired her own musical and creative path as she writes her own songs.
Nia Pearl studied music and completed her studies in 2013 and began carving her path in the music industry. In 2014, she performed at The Road to Joy of Jazz. She was also part of the Castle Milk Stout music competition on Metro FM. In 2015, she performed at The Nescafe Red Mugg sessions and began writing and recording music with producer 37mph.
