Listen now!

The 7 track EP features NEAV's award winning songs ‘Silence Song’ and 'Tragic Drama' along with her latest single ‘Say Goodbye’.

With each song that was created, I challenged myself to be more vulnerable and push the boundaries of who "NEAV" is as an artist.

NEAV is the alter-ego of gifted young singer/songwriter Niamh Watson. NEAV released her debut EP in November of 2022, working with Australia’s top producers to create her own brand of pop infused music.

NEAV has received high praise from Rolling Stone Australia, Amazing Radio (UK and USA), Triple J (Australia) and she has had two of her music videos featured on MTV Australia.

As a songwriter, NEAV has received music industry awards and accolades which include:

  • ​Winner - 'National Songwriting Awards 2021' (Australian Songwriters Association)[Pop/Contemporary Category]  - 'Tragic Drama'​

  • Winner - 'National Songwriting Awards 2020' (Australian Songwriters Association)  [Pop/Contemporary Category]  - 'Silence Song' ​

  • Winner - 'The Songwriting Prize 2020' (Listen Up Music - National Songwriting Competition) - 'Wherever You Are'​

  • Nominated - 'APRA AMCOS/ASA Songwriter of the Year' (2020 and 2021)

​In previous years, NEAV contributed lyrics and vocals to the Independent Music Awards nominated Album 'Elevacion' by Puerto Rican band SACH, was a finalist in the UK Song Academy 'Young International Songwriter of the Year' competition and has twice been a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC).​ 

Still only 18 years old, NEAV's burgeoning reputation as a live performer has seen her open for or share a festival stage with artists such as Greta Stanley, The Moving Stills, Dan Sultan, Winterbourne, Pierce Brothers, Imogen Clark, Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird, Little Quirks, Elaskia, and Molly Millington in well known venues across Sydney, Newcastle and the Central Coast.
