In the year 2012, at the age of 13, Nina was already a semi-finalist of Austrians casting show "Die Große Chance" where the audience even answered one of her performances with standing ovations. Besides her own band project "Sick Growing" Nina has become a sought-after live and studio performer and songwriter on demand.
I called Nina one afternoon because I needed a singer for a gig later in the evening of that same day. We met for a short discussion about the songs and then played live for 4 hours! Nina has a huge repertoire and a magnificent voice.
We play english pop songs from classics to newer songs.
Normally I open up every set alone, singing a few songs that work well for me, e.g. Elton John's Your Song or the Cutis Mayfield classic People Get Ready. I record a few chords with a looper that serve as backing track for some guitar and flute solos. Playing the flute of course makes the famous Jethro Tull classic Locomotive Breath obligatory!
Nina then usually starts off with If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys. Hearing her sing Natalie Imbruglia's Torn oder Jessie J's Price Tag may make you believe these songs have been written for her. We are also singing many songs together, sometimes Nina, sometimes me taking the first respectively second voice.
