Nieve Malandra is a native of North Beach (Little Italy) San Francisco, she grew up absorbing the diverse cultures and arts of the city. After studying at City College & The Blue Bear School of Music & Jazz and performing at several jazz clubs throughout the city, she relocated to Los Angeles to further study at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. While attending she quickly was in demand by both teachers and local producers doing session work and performing out nightly with various bands that kept her very busy, including Jack Mack & The Heart Attack. After living in Los Angeles for a few years she decided to try her luck in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is the greatest city in the world for live entertainment and she wanted to take full advantage of it. Upon her arrival she quickly hooked up with Best of Las Vegas Zowie Bowie Band and went on to perform as the lead female singer for nearly a decade.
Nieve also heads her own jazz & pop band & performs nightly on and off the strip. One thing that sets Nieve apart is her wide vocal range, versatility in styles of music, and her vast repertoire, which includes singing in 5 languages!
Miss Malandra can be seen performing weekly at high end restaurants and venues all over town just to name a few; The Barrymore, The Westgate, The Golden Tiki, Park MGM, The Strat, The Paris, Bally’s just to name a few. In 2020 she received the honor of winning the Silver State Award Best Female Singer in Las Vegas.
In addition to performing, Nieve is the proud mother of two daughters, Gianna & Sade, one of which is a budding musician and singer/songwriter in her own right and can be seen accompanying her mother from time to time, while modeling their fun and bold fashions from their mother/daughter owned and operated fashion boutique. Nieve opened the doors to her online/brick & mortar location, Malandra Boutique in 2016 out of her love for dressing up for her performances and wanting to share her passion for fashion with other women.

Nieve’s wish is to continue to build her clothing & entertainment brand, influence more women internationally and travel while performing.
