Nia Lynn

Nia started writing songs at the tender the age of 13. With over 300 songs and a volume of poems now part of her own collection, Nia has become a uniquely compelling songwriter, lyricist and poet. Her musical training has helped to refine (but not define) the sounds of her youth which were deeply immersed in Welsh language folk lore with the cross-rhythms and hard-hitting sounds of European folk music. Nias songs have always remained as original and unique as the stories that lie within them.

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin were an English rock band originally formed in 1968 by guitarist Jimmy Page under the name "The New Yardbirds", based on Page's previous band, The Yardbirds. The band formed when Jimmy Page (guitar) recruited Robert Plant (vocals, harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin), and John Bonham (drums). With their heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock sound, Led Zeppelin are regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock music. However, the band's individualistic style drew from many sources and transcends any one genre.
