Nina Arya

BBC Introducing StageSaturday3:40 pm

With her beautifully introspective lyricism, articulate melodies and deep love of heavy bass lines,

Ipswich crooner Nina Arya is a multi-genre force to be reckoned with.

Early 2023 Nina stormed the DnB scene with a feature on drum and bass heavyweight Monrroe’s first single of the year, Joining him to perform the track at a sold out Printworks London show right before its closure. Nina has also achieved wide reaching support for her own R&B inspired work, with her first single of 2023 ‘Waters’ Receiving Radio 1 airplay and ‘Artist of the Week’ accreditation from the BBC Asian Network.

Jumpstarting her songwriting career at the age of 17, Nina dove head first into the industry, working with the likes of DJ Fresh, The Brookes Brothers and Polar Youth, amassing over 2 million streams in the process. Shortly after, Nina received support from BBC 1XTRA for her first solo track ‘Bad Habits’ and placed in the top 10 out of 10,000 artists for the BBC Introducing Live Lounge competition. Nina’s ability to stand out in a crowd is unrivalled, a sentiment which carries through in her carefully crafted live shows, having performed at countless BBC events, Latitude festival, Printworks London and supporting the legendary Mancunian soul duo Children of Zeus.

This year Nina is ready to show a whole new side to her artistry with darker, moodier tones highlighted in her latest single ‘Don’t Believe Me’. Keep your eyes and ears peeled, this is one artist you won’t want to miss on her way up.
