Combining her raw vocals with Latin-American charm and sass, Nia Ocean creates the perfect blend for an emotional performance. Formerly known as Ria, this soulful and spicy songstress has made people across continents cry and dance in the same night. Ocean loves to connect directly to her audience.

A heartfelt performer. A versatile songwriter. An international songstress. Thanks to her cross-cultural upbringing, her ability to create new sounds for the modern global generations makes her an on-demand performer and songwriter—penning and performing in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
This South Florida muse with Colombian-Cuban-American roots graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston and has since then attracted attention from and shared the stage with Grammy award winners such as John Mayer, Melissa Etheridge, Ruben Blades and Dee Dee Bridgewater. After living and singing abroad for more than 7 years, she returned home to start anew, both musically and personally, with her husband and her first baby daughter. Her credits include 'Can't Let You Go' by Calmani & Gray (Spotify TV, Radio and Viral Top 50), 'Sun' by Ramba Zamba (over 150,000 Spotify works, played at the Holi Festival Berlin), the voice in the song "Live It" in the latest international KIA Stonic campaign from Europe as well as many more. While residing in Germany in 2015, she signed as a songwriter with Vibekingz / BMG Publishing, where she wrote songs with and for various artists, radio companies and TV commercials. Ocean currently resides in Miami and is working on her latest music project with her third release called ‘Me Prometo’— now available on all digital platforms worldwide.
