BCKOnline: You are debuting your new a song and video on June 20th…tell us about your latest project?
Nia Sioux: Yes! So excited to have my new single come out on my birthday! And the video the day after. Since I can’t spend my birthday with every single one of my fans, i figured releasing a song is a way to give them a piece of me. I hope they like the more mature look and sound i am going for.
BCKOnline: How would you categorize your musical style?
Nia Sioux: My musical style varies tremendously from song to song. I love experimenting with different sounds. Right now I would say I am incorporating an urban pop style in most of my music.
BCKOnline: Do you see music becoming more of a prominent career for you, taking a top priority over dance and/or acting?
Nia Sioux: I am a performer. I really see myself as a triple threat. I love to sing, act and dance!!! My interests are constantly evolving and I enjoy having opportunities to stretch my talents. Right now, I am fortunate that I am pursuing my music.
BCKOnline: Where do you find your inspiration for your songs?
Nia Sioux: Typically I use my life experiences as inspiration for my music. I like to sing about things I am currently going through that other teens could relate to. I want my music to be relatable and dynamic.
BCKOnline: Who would sing with you in your ideal duet?
Nia Sioux: Beyonce, she’s the queen!
BCKOnline: What are your future plans…school/professionally?
Nia Sioux: My future plans include studying and preparing for college. In addition to producing new music, I would also love the opportunity to act in a feature film or in a role as a series regular for a scripted television program. I hope to return to stage and possibly perform on a Broadway stage.
BCKOnline: What are some of your favorite things to do during your downtime?
Nia Sioux: When I have free time I love to connect with my friends. Whether I am taking a quick selfie for my Snapchat streaks or FaceTiming with a friend, I love to use technology to keep in touch with friends. I also love to experiment with makeup and try new techniques. Makeup is an art and I see it as another example of artistic expression- similar to dance. But perhaps one of my greatest pleasures would be spending time with my dogs. Whether I am taking them out for a walk or grooming them, I love spending time with Olive and Henry.
