I got those green green eyes for blue nights. All of the sounds that move and rise, I’ve grown to know.
— "Last Night in Los Feliz" by Niia

During the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Ugly Magazine was honored with a visit from Niia Rocco. This gifted singer's sultry voice, reminiscent of the legend Sade Adu, is highlighted on her new album,  'I' (listen here). It features a collection of songs that flow easily from one to the next with influences of neo soul, sophisti pop, R&B, and jazz. Her song 'Last Night in Los Feliz" was featured in the short film 'Kylie' by Sasha Samsonova providing a moody and meditative vibe to highlight Kylie Jenner's more matured persona (watch here).

While visiting Park City, Niia stopped by Studio Elevn to escape the madness that is Sundance and shoot with us. Wearing Davis Hong, Niia's natural beauty was captured by photographer Armand Sanchez. Enjoy the photos and be sure to follow Niia as she continues her craft in music and song. Stay Ugly.
