A sweet and glorious ballad from Nia Ekanem. “Beautiful” does exactly what you would expect it to, sweet lyrics that combined with Nia’s vocal will melt any heart. I think he’s taken his vocal to another level now it builds so well towards the end and goes somewhere i don’t think he has taken his vocal. Nia is making a lane for himself in this game keep your eyes on him.
When i featured the track i mentioned how nice it was to hear Nia Ekanem with a band behind him rather than just him and his giuitar. Well here is a session with him perfoming the track stripped down and as it always is when you catch Nia like this real quality. Gorgeous tune.
The superb tones of Nia Ekanem on with the release of his new single “Travellers” taken from his forthcoming self titled EP. So nice to hear Nia with a full band behind him and not just the acoustic guitar that myself and many others are used to hearing him on. The fuller sounds suits his voice really well and adds a new dimension to his songs. Great to hear look forward of whats to come.
Another Valentines release featuring two of the top emerging talents from the Spoken Word and Soul circles come together to produce a joint EP with the aim of taking the listening through the most romantic day of the year. Nego True and Music is Remedy favourite Nia Ekanem bring their styles together really well and there are some great moments on the EP. Unsuprisingly me being the soul bwoy that I am my highlight is the track below “It’s Your Love” which is Nia’s solo piece on the EP. Showing off his soft matured vocal style to the fullest on a warm love filled track.
An interesting take on the song that broke Outkast into the mainstream many a moon ago. Nia Ekanem who I have had the pleasure of working with over the last month or so puts his soft crisp vocal sounds all over it and even gets the Vocals and Verses crowd to sing along.
Shouts to Vocals and Verses shot at their Christmas special last month.
