Music: Nina Nastasia:NYC Alt-folk

Back to What's On


A one-off UK date from New York City based singer Nina Nastasia, Her concise, hook-laden songwriting picks over themes of love, longing and loss, childhood dreams and human dramas. Her voice has been described as an intimate presence, able to freeze or melt your heart.

Having moved to New York from California on a whim, Nina gradually carved out a stellar career as a singer-songwriter, before being championed in the UK by the late radio DJ, John Peel, who described her music as ‘astonishing.’

Support comes from young Vermont-born folk singer Sam Amidon, who remakes traditional material into ‘startling, moving’ music.’ (The Guardian)

‘These intimate hushes and lilts would be remarkable even as instrumentals.... Yet it's Nastasia's voice--and the words that it sings--that really sucks the air out of the room.’
