Nieve Ella has quickly become one of the most exciting artists in the UK. Following the release of her debut EP and first live shows in 2022 she has gained supporters from Radio 1’s Greg James, Jack Saunders & Mollie King to tastemaker journalists at NME, Notion & DORK, as well as a digital audience of 100k+ and over 3M streams.
Having recently turned the pivotal age of 20, Nieve’s songwriting for her forthcoming second EP ‘Lifetime Of Wanting’ continues to tell the story of her first two decades growing up near Birmingham and the people and memories that have shaped who she is today. Reflecting on the collection, Nieve explains:
“My first EP was based on my life 2 years ago – a period where I felt unwanted and unsure of myself. A lot has changed since then and with this new project i went in with a whole new mindset. The person I am today had to find a way to write about being in-love. Creating most of these new songs with Iain Berryman, i discovered this whole new way of expressing myself. At the start of this project i was only just coming to terms with being in love and making sure i knew how to express it to my fullest. live music also became such an important part of my life in the past year so i knew i wanted to make sure i fed that into this new era. the Nieve Ella love song era.”
Nieve Ella is a true music lover, citing some of the biggest stars and underground newcomers of the alt-pop/indie scenes as influences: Sam Fender, Phoebe Bridgers, Lizzy McAlpine and Flyte. Her music journey started when she quickly gained a TikTok following doing covers of some of these artists, and now only a short time later she is sharing their stages and collaborating with the same producers.
When you see Nieve Ella’s current live set it’s hard to believe she played her first show in summer 2022. Instantly putting the audience at ease, Nieve seamlessly transitions from powerful performance, to conversations with the room and endearing interactions with her band. That natural and captivating set has secured Nieve amazing opportunities, such as touring Europe with Dylan and slots at major summer festivals.
