The elegant young singer concentrates on jazz and bossanova, occasionally also on jazzy soul. For a 23 year old Nina has a strikingly deep, dark and colourful voice, while her phrasing is so sure and rhythmically precise that two years ago 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 master classes by saxophonist Billy Harper and pianist Joey Calderazzo. Nina leads two different bands of her own.
