Biography

“ONE OF THE FEW ‘DON’T MISS’ SOLO ACTS TO COME THROUGH TOWN THIS YEAR” Creative Loafing

It’s not everyday that a first generation Cuban, born and raised in Miami Fl, finesses a glass slide along the strings of her acoustic guitar with her foot stomping in time to the swampiest groove this side of the Mississippi Delta, but that is exactly how Nini Camps takes the stage to play SLIDE, the lead off track from her sophomore release, SO LONG. Don’t be misled however, into thinking that bluesy slide work is the only thing this New York City based, independent, singer, songwriter, guitarist has to offer. Musically, she goes beyond the conventions of today’s popular music fearlessly blurring the lines of pop, country, folk and rock to create a sound that is as diverse as it is powerful. While influenced by such powerful writers as Lucinda Williams, Bruce Springsteen and Patty Griffin, it is Nini’s ability to effortlessly tap into her Cuban heritage and the likes of the late Celia Cruz, that her unique combination of old and new, Cuban and American is born.

With a newly signed publishing deal with Cherry Lane Music, Nini has toured the East Coast, West Coast, Midwest and Germany (as the US representative for the World Cup Music Festival). No stranger to a busy schedule, Nini has headlined the Houston Women’s Festival, played for the Houston Comets at their Toyota Center Stadium and Michigan Womyns Festival, supported Los Lonely Boys in Texas and the Northeast, supported Ari Hest in the Midwest, showcased at the National Association for Campus Activities in Reno, NV & been selected as one of the few who showcase at their national conference in addition to playing over 100 shows on her own. Her latest EP “Driving You Out” has most recently been heard on the NBC series Tuesday Night Book Club, “Stay Together” was penned for Pokemon’s 10th anniversary CD which will be released as the single by Disney/Koch and “Just Got to Believe” (unreleased) will be featured on As The World Turns, as well as 3 other Camps originals.

“Lovepie” the debut CD, and “So Long” the sophomore release, have landed tracks in independent films like Amy’s O, and television; most notably the WB hit Series Felicity, The Mary Kate and Ashley Show and MTV’s Real World. In addition, the Olsen’s have licensed songs for their TV show soundtrack and 2004 Movie The Challenge.
