Nina Harries, double bassist and vocalist from Northampton, England.
Using original material composed on the double bass, her music and technique has both an ethereal, and an earthy modernist sound.
Exploring the aural relationship between the double bass and the female voice, Nina uses modern life, ancient prose and heavy realism to inspire her lyrics which are often profound, enthralling and at times mesmeric in their repetitive quality.
“I think it is fair to say that you cannot and should not underestimate this lady, you cannot take her for granted. This album will move you through a rainbow of sounds and is deeply captivating. She is certainly one to pay attention to.”
