Gneiss (EP)
2.Dem Boys
5.Can You Handle
6.Respect Me



When something is meant to be you know it right away. That is exactly how the members of Gneiss (pronounced "nice") felt after hearing their blend of harmony for the first time, and they have been on an uphill journey towards success ever since. Nadia Duncan and Teneka Chiles come together to form the Charlotte, NC based R&B duo, Gneiss. They have opened up for R&B acts such as 112 and Calvin Richardson, as well as, hip hop legends Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh and Curtis Blow. Being a a duo, they are often compared to Zhane' from the 1990's. Yet, they go beyond their soulful sound to include an infusion of hip hop and pop on their EP, "Gneiss".
Both members share a love for songwriting and co-wrote each song on the EP. Their first single is the street anthem "Dem Boys", which deals with life in the dirty south. Showing a softer side is the ballad, "Respect Me" about being hurt in a previous relationship and refusing to let it happen again.
Having self love and respect is an important message that the group hopes to share with other young girls. Even their name reflects this message. The word Gneiss derives from the name of a rock that is grey and dull on the outside but on the inside it is filled with beautiful crystals. This was the perfect name to show that one's true worth cannot be judged by his or her outer apperance. Many people have hidden talents and on the outside it may appear that they are incapable of achieving a certain goal, but with hard work and dedication nothing is unattainable. Gneiss knows all about hard work and persistence. With every obstacle they have had to overcome, they haven't given up, and they plan to be around for a long time!
