SPIRITED SINGLE HURTING LOVE FROM SOUTH AFRICAN ALTERNATIVE SINGER-SONGWRITER TIAN NIENABER (PRODUCED BY PEACH VAN PLETZEN)
For fans of John Mayer, Chris Kläfford & John Moreland

Tian Nienaber is a passionate South African Singer-Songwriter who started his career in the Music Industry at the age of 17 as a Sound Engineer and Rigger. For the first 6 years of his career, Tian spent a lot of time on the road with copious artists and assisted several sizeable festivals (learning as much as possible about the industry, whilst building invaluable relationships). Tian has been playing guitar and writing music since the age of 12, so it came as no surprise that he decided to follow his dream to become a Performing Artist after experiencing the Music Industry behind-the-scenes.

 

The past 6 years Tian has been performing his formidable marque of Alternative Acoustic Tunes full-time, playing notable festivals like ALTERNATIEF IS GROOT and STRAB (Mozambique). The time has now come for Tian to unleash original material, starting with his debut single Hurting Love

Tian Nienaber

Tian Nienaber shares that "I wrote this song during the first phases of lockdown in 2020. During this time, I had a lot of time to reflect on many things, one of which being my past. I took on a little challenge to write 21 songs in 21 days for an EP I was thinking about recording called SOLDIER ON. On one of these days, the challenge I set for myself was to write a song about a loved one and what I thought they might feel towards me. At the time I was in lockdown with my mother and that made it quite easy to write about her. I wrote HURTING LOVE about how I think my mother feels about me, or rather, felt. For years I was struggling with addiction and the person who saw the worst side of it was her. So, I believe that this is a representation of what she felt while I was in active addiction. Not only her but all the people who played significant roles in my life."

Peach Van Pletzen

The master in the art of Legehness Peach Van Pletzen at Planet Awesome shares that “I was extremely impressed with Tian in the studio. Not only with his great songwriting capabilities, but having recorded many artists in my career, he has a true powerhouse voice with unique characteristics and tone that shakes a person to the core. I have no doubt that Tian will go far and that this first single will be the start of a great and successful career!”

HURTING LOVE LYRICS

I can see it in your eyes when you look at me

See it in the way you look down when you’re smiling at me

I can feel it in the way that you’ve been touching me

Chilled down to the bone, afraid of who I used to be

 

Well, I’m the kind of love it hurts to look at

The memories you’d like to bury down

I’m the kind of love it hurts to look at

The holes you wish that you could fill up

 

Now you’re hiding in the crowd just trying to get away from me

Doing everything you can not to be seen

I’m a ghost against the wall, I'm fading into everything

A needle in a haystack, never to be seen

 

Well, I’m the kind of love it hurts to look at

The memories you’d like to bury down

I’m the kind of love it hurts to look at

The holes you wish that you could fill up

 

I’m the kind of love it hurts just to be around

I’m the kind of hate you hoped you’d never find

 

Well, I’m the kind of love it hurts to look at

The memories you’d like to bury down

I’m the kind of love it hurts to look at

The holes you wish that you could fill up
