Nia Wyn is a talented singer-songwriter from North Wales. Not too long ago, she released a bluesy neo-soul tune, entitled, “Leave My Bed,” produced by Baker Aaron (Enny, Kadeem Tyrell) via Unity Group. The track comes off the back of a support tour with Paul Weller and collaboration with German super producer, Shuko (Kanye West, Anderson .Paak).
Nia Wyn – “Leave My Bed” single
“Leave my bed, I don’t want no reasons why. Too red, hot angry, I got no steam to cry. If you’re gonna stay ‘round here, you better watch out. Don’t wanna see your face, I don’t wanna see you around. Some say I’m passionate, some say I’m mad. Praised you, built my world ‘round you. Think I’ve gone past the point where I should feel sad.” – lyrics
‘Leave My Bed’ tells a heartfelt tale about an irritated young woman who feels betrayed that her significant other is too afraid to go public with their relationship. Apparently, her companion’s unwarranted actions hurt her so bad that she doesn’t want to see this individual’s face anymore. Later, she addresses her partner, “Can’t believe you made me hate myself just because you don’t like yourself. I ain’t no doctor, but can’t be good for your health – all this sneaking about.”
‘Leave My Bed’ contains a sour relationship-based narrative, unorthodox, engrossing vocals, and melodic instrumentation bursting with neo-soul, jazz, and retro-blues elements. Furthermore, “Leave My Bed” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Nia Wyn’s upcoming EP, entitled, Magical Thinking. Thematically, the project touches on universal emotions that we all experience at some point: betrayal, lust, guilt, and anxiety.
“You can tell by my face I ain’t messing about.”
“It was an experience a long time ago. My first proper relationship with a girl who did not want people to know we were together. It’s rooted in the blues; I’m a big fan of blues artists. I guess writing ‘Leave My Bed’ was influenced by so many classic blues songs about being f***ed over in love.” – Nia Wyn explained
Nia Wyn has a talent for raw and powerful storytelling. She writes about strong emotions, mental health issues, identity, sexuality, and relationship. 2022 is sure to see her rise up as one of the most exciting, emerging young female artists in the UK. Growing up in North Wales, she was exposed to a wide range of music from northern soul, the jazz-blues of Billie Holiday to hip-hop icons, Nas and Lauryn Hill. To date, Nia has attracted support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, and Radio Wales.
Not too long ago, Nia’s “Who Asked You” single was included in the FIFA 21 Soundtrack. That same year, she was awarded a PPL Momentum Music Fund grant by PRS Foundation. Also, she joined Paul Weller on his sold-out 2021 UK tour and later headlined her own London show at Bermondsey Social Club in the winter of 2021.
“Must be cold and dark in there.”
