Nina’s self-titled debut album Nina Shallman was released on August 28, 2015. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby (where physical CDs are also available) and everywhere that music is sold online. Nina Shallman may also be streamed via SoundCloud and on Spotify.
Nina records and performs original songs with rock, jazz, and pop influences, and covers including Big Star’s “Thirteen,” Lennon & McCartney’s “Dear Prudence” and The Smiths’ “Ask.” The latter two are featured on the album, which was produced by Andrew Williams (Nina’s version of “Thirteen” can be heard/seen on YouTube). Nina has collaborated with Williams – a member of The Williams Brothers (an acclaimed pop-rock act active in the 1990s) and producer for artists including Peter Case, Victoria Williams, and Five For Fighting – since 2013.
Nina’s original songs include “Daisies,” “Arms,” “The Moon Can Stay” and “Nice To Hear.” “Daisies” and “Arms” may be downloaded for free on Nina’s website. Another featured album track is “Never Years Old,” a duet and co-write with singer-songwriter Jacob Snider.
“Arms” may also be heard on Live In DawsAngeles 2015, Mike Dawson’s CD compilation of the best of the past year from his popular Front of House podcast (Mike is also the co-producer of the Adam Carolla Show). Nina was featured on FOH in March 2015. You can listen to the entire podcast here—including the first ever live recording of “Arms”: www.soundcloud.com/dawsangeles/foh-053-nina-shallman
A native of Southern California, Nina is a sophomore at Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She has always been drawn to lyrics and melody, and remembers harmonizing to Beatles songs since she was very young. That music remains an influence for Nina, as is work by a range of artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Adele, Harry Nilsson, Norah Jones, Amy Winehouse, and Joni Mitchell.
