Biography

Niav is an irish singer/songwriter,musician and producer currently living in new south wales, Australia.
Known for her unique vocal style and music,
Niav's songwriting skills along with her musical talents and popular creative production techniques combine to offer a smorgasbord of social commentary and passion in the true bardic style of her ancestry.
Her singing has been described variously as haunting , emotional , ethereal , and unique ....the combination of opera training and growing up in Ireland's celtic musical atmosphere producing an unusual vocal flavour.
Niav , formerly an electronics engineer by trade, is also a published poet.
She has collaborated internationally with some very talented artists from all over the world , some of these collaborations will be appearing on her debut album Woman In A World Gone Mad due for release late 2007.

Niav......

" I started out three years ago to aurally paint
every human emotion . Somewhere along the line
that mission developed into one of a socio-political
call to conscience and this is what my coming debut album Woman In A World Gone Mad is comprised of.
This wasn't an intentional move but sprang from the frustration of watching so much WRONG at loose in the world and everyone seemingly so conditioned to it and so emotionally removed from it .
Basically I try to reach past conditioning lyrically, emphasize the point vocally,and put the listener into the scene via the production.
The results can often be a shock to the system,
in some instances one needs to shock to capture full attention.
I liken much of my music to the "reality" car crash
advertisements you sometimes see on tv for drink driving.....
I try to do the same thing but in a soundscape when I produce.
and you know, it's a WHOLE lot of fun."

Lyrics

I Am

Written By: Niav

On the floor of the sea
You will find me
I am
Part of the brine
Of all things sublime
There in the sky
Where spirit flies
On these wings of mine
I Am

In the flow of the river
You'll find me.
I am
Child of the mother
Her minstrel in song
Nomad and healer
Through Time moving on
Spirit of all things
I am

The toss of the coin
And the meeting by chance
The eagle in flight
And the panther in dance.
At one with all things
I am

On the shore of the sea
You will find me
I am
The essence of matter
The pull of the moon
The stars on horizons
The etheral womb
One with all things
I Am

Falling In Love

Written By: Niav

I see the stars in your eyes
There's colours and fires inside
I float as you hypnotise me
I'm falling in
Carry me away
Lover embrace my soul
Your smile draws me in

I'm falling in love you know
I'm falling in love you know
I'm falling in love you know
I'm falling in love with you.

Beautiful boy
Where did you come from
Strolling into my life
My feelings you jeopardize
You're my vision of man come true
I'd like to taste your skin
My breathing is quickening
The warmth of your mouth
I'd drown in.

Will you come home with me
Will you come home with me
Will you come home with me
Will you come home tonight

Feel the currents flow between us
They're lappin' round our feet
Sparks fly as you brush my skin
From the power of love inside
Tingling thru our veins
Lightin' up the fire
I'm burning up in flames

I need your lovin' babe
I need your lovin' babe
I need your lovin' babe
I need your lovin' inside

Please ,please,please,please
Please come home tonight
I'm falling in love you know
I'm falling in love you know
I'm falling in love you know
I'm falling in love with you
