Amsterdam-based, silver-blonde songstress Nina June creates cinematic pop songs that tell tales of the complex forms of human connections. With her sultry alto voice she combines timeless melodies with contemporary lyrics and cinematic sound design.
On November 26, 2021, Nina June released her new album ‘Meet Me on The Edge of Our Ruin’.
On this album, the singer and songwriter tells about traces of past romances, changing relationships, past friendships and her concerns about the relationship between humankind and nature. “From the point where we can look back on the ruins we leave behind, an invitation to set a new course for the future unfolds. Where do I go from here?”
‘Meet Me on The Edge of Our Ruin’ is the follow-up to Nina June’s album ‘Bon Voyage’ and the EP ‘Shadows & Riddles’, whose songs have been listened to over 30 million times on streaming services. The artist played shows from Amsterdam to New York and from Berlin to Milan. Several of her songs have been used in (inter)national films and TV series. In 2018, the singer-songwriter won the ‘Zilveren Notekraker’ for the most outstanding artistic achievement of that year.
Born and raised in Castricum, a small village near the sea, Nina grew up with parents who had diverse musical tastes. Her mother listened to the evocative songs of iconic female singer-songwriters such as Tracy Chapman, Eva Cassidy and Annie Lennox, while her dad preferred groups like The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, with their classic songwriting and vocal harmonies. At the age of 17, Nina left her hometown to study music at the acclaimed Rockacademy.
At the beginning of 2019 Nina joined the impressive roster of renowned Canadian label Nettwerk which represents artists such as Angus & Julia Stone, SYML and Passenger.
Nina’s music can best be described as ‘melancholic nostalgia’ and thus evokes comparisons with artists such as Ane Brun, Air and The Paper Kites.
