“Feisty singer-songwriter” – Jackie Hayden (Hotpress Magazine)
“You are an inspiration – keep shining” – Liam Ó Maonlaí
With lyrics which are honest and emotive and a voice which is clear and at times hypnotic, Nina Armstrong is a delightfully unique artist.
In her mid-twenties Nina decided to follow a long standing dream of writing and performing her own songs. Playing recorder in Primary School being her only musical training!, she decided to learn to play guitar to enable her to develop her songwriting skills and perform live.
Within two years Nina had a string of live performances, on stage and on radio, throughout Ireland. She had also recorded a four track EP and had shared the stage with artists such as Liam O’Manolai (Hot House Flowers), John Spillane and Jenny Lindfors.
Some other highlights in her career include playing Glasgowbury Music Festival (Draperstown), The Ruby Sessions (Dublin) and Indie Summer Festival (Carrick-on-Shannon).
Nina also performed vocals for MTV EMA winner, Tyrone Relph on his album “Princely Ransoms from a Paupers Address”.
Her vocal style and lyrical content have been likened to that of Suzanne Vega and Joni Mitchell, however, anyone who hears her music will have difficulty finding a box to put it into.
Nina lives in County Armagh, Northern Ireland.
