ARTIST BIO

The music of South Carolina singer and producer Niecy Blues explores themes such as grief, self-acceptance, lineage, ritual, and emotional vulnerability. Niecy Blues weaves a special blend of ambient and R&B wherein their reverberating voice smothers the sparseness of their production in a close embrace. Niecy Blues says of their music: “I feel a strange pull, and let it carry me, following swirling leaves... whole days roll by, forgetting about the body.” In their new release Exit Simulation (2023, Kranky), the ghostly harmonies of downtempo gospel melt into reverberating looped vocal improvisations in an album that flourishes anew with each passing song. Niecy Blues’s sound world is one of gentle lullabies, heuristic pop hooks, and world-class R&B melody. Her full-length debut, Exit Simulation, captures this sense of deep-rooted divination, cycling between simmering ballads, ghosted R&B, downtempo gospel, and looped vocal improvisations – often within the same track.
