The elegant young singer concentrates on jazz and bossanova, occasionally also on jazzy soul. In Pori she is a special guest at the jam sessions.
For a 22 year old Nina has a strikingly deep, dark and colourful voice, while her phrasing is so sure and rhythmically precise that last year she won the soloist prize at the Young Nordic Jazz Comets competition, which she attended with her own band. Coming from the northern city of Tornio, Nina started studying classical piano and jazz singing at 15 and currently studies at the Sibelius Academy’s jazz department, where she is taught by singer Jenny Robson and saxophonist Manuel Dunkel, among others. She has also had masterclasses by saxophonist Billy Harper and pianist Joey Calderazzo.
Nina compose jazz music as well and she has taken influencies to her music from 50 and 60 centuries music as well as other genres. On June 2012 Nina and her bands will announce their first album.
