Biography

Necessity is the mother of invention. If you don't like what you see change it, and if you don't like what you hear, create it. In Nina's mind these notions have always been her prime motivation. What you say and how you say it define you as a person, and as a performer.

Aside from the undeniable rhythm and personal accompaniment Nina creates, there are underlying themes in her work that remain constant. Her desire to make music is reflected in all of the choices and sacrifices she makes in her life to remain a full time musician.

Every aspect of the business is important to her. She orchestrates everything from playing, to booking, to composing, to recording, mastering and collecting and restoring vintage gear. Each carefully selected piece of gear found and fixed is an important piece of the mono tonal puzzle she is so determined to realize and is one step closer to creating the complete picture, capturing the mood, and singing about the things she feels are most important.

Nina is influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, The Carter Family, Johnny Cash, Dusty Springfield, The Velvet Underground, Phil Spector, Lee Hazlewood and Nico, as well as a myriad of French philosophers and beat poets such as: Rimbaud, Sartre, Baudelaire, Ferlinghetti, Ginsberg, and Emerson.

You may hear these influences or other traces of punk, folk, rock, ambient, experimental, Hindustani classical, or country. Or maybe you don't hear any of that. And that's fine because it's not what you label it, it's what you take from it. So you my friend, can decide.
