7 OCTOBER 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, critically-acclaimed singer and producer Niia releases her Live at Public Records EP due out October 7 via experimental label OFFAIR. The EP follows her highly-praised meditative album OFFAIR: Mouthful of Salt, where she took solace in an organic process of minimal instrumentation and jazz improvisation.
Niia also announces three shows in Asia, beginning in Tokyo at Billboard Live on November 14.
The project celebrates the partnership between OFFAIR and Public Records, bringing groundbreaking, phone-free experiences to Brooklyn, having featured artists like Niia, Moses Sumney, Angel Olsen, Raphael Saadiq, Helado Negro and more.
