ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Some say Niya is a living doll. Some say she has the voice of an angel. Some say her songwriting is a love note to God. As you experience “Someday” her debut CD, you will get to have your say. Five years in the making and now like a well-seasoned stew, Niya serves up an eclectic mix of musical styles and genres ranging from the bold, out-of-the box “None Like You,” to the rhythmic majestic hymn “When I Survey.” Niya has come a long way from singing in the church choir at age 2 to her first CD release. She is a graduate of Hampton University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and a concentration in Vocal Performance.

This singer-songwriter, dancer, choreographer, actress, is no stranger to the industry. She made her stage debut at nine-years-old, as “Little Ti Moune” in Once on This Island.” Other stage credits include: “The Wiz,” “The Piano Lesson,” and Debbie Allen’s “Soul Possessed.” At fifteen, Niya became a member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers and Publishers) after writing and publishing her first song, “In Memory of 4 Little Girls.” It was showcased on MTV, CNN and on radio throughout the country. Niya has performed with a Who’s Who list of recording artists. She and her choir (Union Temple Baptist Church Youth Choir) were featured as background vocalists for Michael Jackson, Barry Manilow, Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Reba McEntire, Patti LaBelle and Boyz II Men.

She also opened for esteemed gospel artist, Shirley Caesar, at Orchestra Hall in Detroit, MI. Niya has had the privilege of working with noted television composer Kurt Farquar, and her songs featured on “King of Queens” “Just Jordan” and “Love Inc.” She has taught gospel music in Japan (Osaka, Fukuoka, and Tokyo) and is excited about the world-wide release of her debut album, “Someday.”

Niya, Niya, Niya!!!
Wow, Niya, I love your CD!!! And that first song, \"Someday\" really gives the picture and anticipation of the day we should all be waiting for. What an experience your album is!

Peters at CD Baby


Someday isn’t your typical gospel album. Sure, it’s full of good news and the kind of Christian messages one might expect from Yolanda Adams’ niece, but it’s so much more. The title track is a sublime, epic ballad featuring a full orchestra with a choir, led by jazzy piano chord changes and Niya’s strong, clear voice. “All I Need” has a propulsive drum groove reminiscent of Aaliyah, and whose chorus is carried by rich, darkly melodic harmonies. “None Like You” is an uplifting rocker featuring the orchestra and choir again, but the song is full of unusual chord changes which are constantly moving forward, backed by uniquely serpentine string arrangements which wouldn’t sound out of place on a Radiohead album. “Thank U 4 U” has a simple sing-along chorus that churches would be proud to include in their rotation of praise songs. As a whole, the album’s highlights are the truly wonderful and engaging orchestrations and production by Roy Cotton II, Andrae Ames’ snazzy drumming, and of course, Niya’s exquisite voice and songwriting skills. The overall effect is a breathtaking revelation that all gospel songs don’t have to sound the same. Niya has created an exceptional work of art that deserves repeated listening.
