NINA

NINA is a German Synthpop / Synthwave singer-songwriter based in London, UK.

Born and raised in Berlin, she began singing at the age of six and she moved on to classical training during her teens. NINA cites Depeche Mode as one of her early musical influences and currently counts Kavinsky as one of her fans.

NINA released We Are The Wild Ones in 2013, garnering her great media attention. The track was used in SyFy’s US TV Series Being Human (Season 4), which exposed her music to millions of viewers and the official music video for this track was premièred by Huffington Post, who described her music as ‘Lana Del Rey meets Robyn’.

NINA’s second single My Mistake released in 2014, was included in HUGO BOSS’ 20 Years Compilation, available on all HUGO BOSS stores worldwide. Other brands that licensed her music include ASOS, Adidas and Net-a-Porter for their online campaigns.

NINA’s first UK Tour was announced after a successful show at Liverpool Sound City 2014, as well as a US Tour supporting ERASURE (The Violet Flame Tour) in September, where NINA performed 7 dates around the East Coast.

NINA made a live appearance on US morning TV Show “6 In The Mix” – NBC6 (Florida) performing her latest single ‘My Mistake’. After receiving great reviews, NINA performed at the legendary CBGB’s Festival in NYC in October 2014 as well as the Pyramid Club, and she performed an exclusive acoustic session for City Winery New York.

Listen to Nina’s latest single ‘Sleepwalking’ which clearly shows her evolution is just beginning as she awakes from her Chrysalis. 

At the end of 2014 NINA performed several shows around Europe including supporting MONARCHY in London, and touring with DE/VISION and MESH as their support act in Germany.
In April 2015 Mercedes Benz featured NINA’s song ‘My Mistake’ on their European TV and radio advert, which also appeared on several stadiums around Europe. The track reached #6 in the UK Shazam advert charts.

In April 2016 Idolator premiered NINA’s latest single Beyond Memory, produced by Richard X and Sunglasses Kid, which was one of the best selling pre-orders on iTunes UK and France and was released on May 27th 2016, with remixes by Ministry of Sound DJs Nilesh Parmar and Liam Keegan (currently on rotation on MTV Dance), as well as Swedish producer Oscillian.

‘Beyond Memory’ was played on BBC Introducing London in July 2016.

NINA was preselected for the 2016 MIDEM Artist Accelerator program, and that same year, Idolator included “Beyond Memory” in their “Top 10 EPs & Mixtapes of 2016” List. NINA performed at Canadian Music Week in May 2016, kindly funded by PRS for Music Foundation.

Another fantastic display of Nina’s almost ethereal vocals is within ‘Empire Of Love’. Watch the video below!

In 2017 NINA released her latest single “One Of Us” in collaboration with Metropolis Studios and M:UK label, which established her as the “Queen of Synthwave” and led her to multiple appearances at some of the most renowned Synthwave festivals around Europe. ‘One Of Us’ was premiered by PopCrush in June 2017.

NINA’s debut album ‘Sleepwalking’ was released on March 16th 2018, which was sold out within a week on vinyl and CD.

Let’s see what Nina has to say about Vocalzone!

“I never play a show without a Vocalzone. I usually have one after my vocal warm ups just before going on stage. It really opens up my my throat and soothes my voice. I’m excited to try the new flavours too!”
