Scottish/Swedish folk pop singer who does a spot of modelling on the side.
When Nina Nesbitt released her debut album Peroxide in February 2014, she was be just 19. That the half Scottish, half Swedish singer/songwriter has already spent two years putting out EPs, touring the country and steadily building her fan base – her video views stand at more than 20 million.
Some may lazily label Nina as a mainstream pop artist but her career approach has a lot more in common with the DIY ethic of punk. Not afraid to experiment with genre, she is a songwriter who has built her career by gigging relentlessly and even makes her own tour T-shirts. Since being discovered by Ed Sheeran at the age of 16 and self-releasing her debut EP, The Apple Tree, signing to Island Records and being named ’Singer/Songwriter New Artist of the Year‘ by iTunes at the tail-end of 2012, Nina’s natural knack for songwriting has been honed by months spent in the studio with producer Jake Gosling (Paloma Faith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction) and working with Iain Archer (Jake Bugg).
