There is a moment we all have when we first hear the voice of a singer for the first time. ... If the sound your brain translates is the voice of Nina Storey, then you can expect the heart to take over from there as her music splashes into your soul and digs in. ...

As her song "Looks Can Be Deceiving" off her self-titled CD illustrates, she is like a butterfly as her voice flits and flutters over the notes with delicacy, then in a blink of an eye, morphs into a raptor and plucks up a note and takes it and you for a ride. Storey’s voice can be described as nothing less than clear, powerful and agile.

With 5 independently produced and released records under her belt and one on the way, listeners can look forward to classic Nina with some new surprises. ... But you need not wait till the disc drops to hear the latest music to come from this talented artist, Storey performs newly written material as soon as she's written it.

Storey's music blends blues, rock, r&b, funk, and pop into a style that is distinctly her own.

- Holly Shriver


Popular around Denver, where the looming Rockies offer the perfect backdrop for her thunderclap voice, local treasure Storey made herself known toa wider audience last year with performances at Lilith Fair and Woodstock '99. Here on her first nationally distributed CD, Storey unleashes her force-of-nature pipes on 12 gospel-style rock and jazz-grooved songs. She wrote or cowrote all of them with either her manager and coproducer, Jan Storey, or her guitatist, former Miles Davis sessions man Randy Hall...

"With a voice like hers pyrotechnics are redundant." - S.D.


“Formal training and theory aside, songwriting is at heart a mysterious process that’s probably driven by as many different creative impulses as there are composers. In the case of Nina Storey, the desire to write songs was a natural outgrowth of her extraordinary gifts as a vocalist. “ - Performing Songwriter


“…By far one of the most powerful and expressive voices in the business today. Combining poignant storytelling with memorable melodies, Storey delivers music that is first-rate and poised to take her place in the company of Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan.” - Music Connection


"...Soulful sparkplug Nina Storey might well be called LA NIÑA …can stir up a storm when she belts out her self-penned soul-funk tunes. She’s starting to build an out-of-state audience and her album, “Shades” (on Colorado label Nina Storey Music), shows she has what it takes to become a national Storey.” - The Denver Post


"...Nina Storey whose voice is half Janis and half Alanis, and whose arresting delivery is three parts Virgin Mary and one part Dirty Harry" - Good Times Magazine


“She puts so much energy, verve and soul into her shows that she can barely whisper when greeting well-wishers after a performance …if there’s any justice in world, she should become a huge star. - Monterey County Herald


...Storey's full-voiced, soulful, and eclectic style draws on a variety of the "stuff that I write reflects on so many different sounds, " Storey says.

One regional outlet that has posted strong sales with "Shades" is "Albums on the Hill" in Boulder. Colo. Store owner Andy Schneidkraut says, "It's probably one of my strongest-selling local relaeses since the days of Big Head Todd & the Monsters and the Samples...She's a very dynamic performer. She's Joan Osborne in a smaller package." - Billboard Magazine, Chris Morris
