Operating with a songwriting maturity well above her 18 years, Central Coast artist NEAV (aka Niamh Watson) unveils her ever-expanding sound with her latest offering ‘Built The Same’. It’s the follow up to her singles ‘Talking To The Devil’ and 'Silence Song' which both garnered praise across triple j, FBi, Rolling Stone, Life Without Andy, The Music and GC Live to name a few.
‘Built The Same’ has allowed NEAV to delve further into emotive songwriting by exploring new themes and sounds. “I have always wondered how and why certain individuals act or think the way they do. Sometimes people's actions or reactions are so alien to me. This was the main concept we started with when David and I began to write the song. We began to form this idea that everyone is physically built in unique ways, and some of us just don’t understand each other. In this way, we ultimately harm ourselves and others when we can’t coexist.” NEAV
In 2020 Niamh took out the top prize in the Pop/Contemporary category of 'The Australian Songwriting Awards' run by the Australian Songwriters Association and also received a coveted nomination for the 'APRA|AMCOS/ASA Songwriter of the Year.' She was also the recipient of the 'The Songwriting Prize 2020' a national competition run by leading music mental health charity Listen Up.
