An integral component of growing into one's artistry is putting trust in the precarious concept of divine timing, something that Swedish songwriter and recording artist Nea is embracing wholeheartedly. After dedicating the past five years to working behind-the-scenes as a prolific songwriter, 2019 marked the beginning of a destined transition for the multifaceted creative born Linnea Södahl. With her foundation rooted in crafting anthems that span the haunting depths and whimsical peaks of the contemporary pop-driven landscape, she made her formal introduction as Nea with the release of 2019’s “Some Say.”
The road to releasing her own music was accented by a variety of impressive accolades, ranging from collaborating with Zara Larsson, Maggie Lindemann, Tove Styrke, Tinie Tempah, Grey and Axwell, among numerous others, to culminating over one billion streams as a co-writer on Larsson's "Lush Life," "Don't Worry Bout Me" and “TG4M.” With "Some Say" catapulting Nea’s career to new heights and reintroducing her to the masses, the release’s successes serve as an undeniable indicator she’s on the right path as a radiant creative. From garnering ~36 million streams on Spotify alone and counting, to becoming the number one most-played song on Swedish radio to recruiting Felix Jaehn for an official remix, “Some Say” illuminates how truly remarkable it is when a song becomes a movement in its own right.
Nea recently joined the dynamic roster of Sony Music's Milkshake imprint, where she will continue feverishly working on her artistry, which she proudly calls "an absolute dream job." In addition to experiencing a whirlwind response to "Some Say," Nea also entered the new decade as an official nominee of the 2020 Swedish Grammis, where she has been included in the prestigious "Composer of the Year" category. As she begins to navigate balancing her work behind-the-scenes and her time sharing her deeply personal music with the world in a new way, Nea's future remains bright and, for refreshingly the first time, in her own hands.
