Nina Baker
Describe Nina Baker in three words they said.
Truth is there have been many words used to describe Nina - Most of them contradict each other. Because Nina Baker is a contradiction.
She is the softly-spoken English rose with lyrics like thorns. A classically trained pianist who combines classical score with blues, pop, skiffle, rock, folk, jazz & country to express her emotions. She will make you smile, make you cry, keep you hanging on every word.

The singer-songwriter has recently returned from her first U.S tour at the end of a year that saw her warming up for Robbie Williams and Monty Python at the London O2 and supporting Mark Morriss, Foxes, Henrik Freischlader, Jill and Kate, Mick Flannery and Ella Eyre on their UK and European tours.
Little over 12 months ago Nina was hand-picked by BBC Introducing to attend their Master Class and she came runner-up in MTV's Brand New for 2013 unsigned competition, impressing the MTV select panel who stated that "Nina brought something really unique to the competition, a mixture of light and dark makes her songs stand out”.
In 2014 Nina’s debut track ‘Single Bed’ won ‘Best Song’ in the 2014 Best Of British Unsigned Awards, and she came runner up in the ‘Best Female’ category.
Her much acclaimed debut album was released at the end of 2014. Self-written, self-funded & self produced, it was recorded at Rockfield, The Church & Abbey Road Studios. Sweet on the outside & bitter in the middle, it is very much an album of two halves.
"With elements of pop, rock, jazz, blues, folk and classical feeding the musical heart of her self-penned debut, Baker has cut a great, difficult to pigeonhole record. The attention she pays to arrangements ensures that each of her thirteen songs is superbly textured and structured.....This is fine stuff." (R2 Magazine, UK)

The album titled 'Quite Frankly' (dedicated to her late grandfather Frank Baker) is a big-scale, uncompromising production. It is a roller-coaster of rhythm, soaring highs and wallowing lows and is widely regarded as one of the best albums of 2014 by an independent artist.

We are still trying to find those three words.
