niia red bull sound selectThe next L.A. edition of Red Bull Sound Select’s ongoing band showcases is curated by our friends at KCRW and will feature the sultry pop stylings of Niia. The show takes place at Hollywood venue The Sayers Club on March 25 at 7 p.m. and is only $3 with an RSVP ($12 at the door). The show is 21+, and it’s first come, first serve, so even if you RSVP, plan to arrive on time.

Niia Bertino is a classically trained pianist and singer who folds elements of jazz and soul into a modern indie-R&B sound. She appeared on Wyclef Jean’s 2007 single “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)” and has released covers by the likes of Tears for Fears, Jai Paul and Nancy Sinatra. In 2013, she self-released her first single, “Made for You,” and in late 2014 released her debut EP, Generation Blue, featuring production work by Rhye’s Robin Hannibal. Stream the track "Body" below:

As always, Red Bull Sound Select pairs touring acts with local up-and-coming talent, and Niia will be suppored at this show by L.A. electronic duo Phantoms. Hear their track “Broken Halo (featuring Nicholas Braun)” below:

Stay tuned for Amoeba’s next Red Bull Sound Select show in May. Past shows we’ve curated have included FIDLAR, Tanlines and Holy Fuck.
