About the Artist
Nia Primus is a Trinidadian-American creative entrepreneur.
Primus created Chill Room Records, an independent label & production company currently based in Philadelphia, in 2019 during her senior year at Shippensburg University. Some of her classmates included Lil Skies, Mad Squablz, and Jordan Gosselin (niece of Jon).
During that time, she focused on writing for other artists. She teamed up with LA-Based production team, Ghostcraft, to create demos for labels. After coming in contact with reps at Atlantic Records, she was considered for a major label project with artists such as Kehlani.
After moving to Philadelphia in mid-2020, she resumed working on her own music. She released an EP entitled, THERAPY, in March 2021. The project gained acclaim throughout the year, with its lead single “The Math” making the cover of Philadelphia Weekly in June.
She later released the single, “Distant Colors,’ which has also gained acclaim amongst critics and audiences alike.
Amelia Vandergast at A&R Factory said: “For anyone that has struggled to keep their head above water in the depth of their emotional intelligence, Distant Colors is more than resonant. The shimmering melodies paired with the steady canter of the kicking downtempo percussion props up NIA’s vocals as they work through the lyrics that stand as a testament to her empathy and versatility.”
In June 2021 she formed The Chill Room Band, her live backing band for all performances. Primus and her team are currently producing instrumentals & sound packages for artists to purchase. She is also currently working on her directorial debut, “City Sway.”
