Nina Lee

21-year-old musician Nina Lee will charm you with her smoky vocals, classy demeanor and weathered lyrics when she steps onto a stage. When she steps off, she becomes a self deprecating social butterfly. A songwriter, a story-teller, singer, performer, and multi instrumentalist- Nina is a born entertainer. As native New Yorker, Nina has a refined grit unlike most 21year olds. Growing up surrounded by different cultures, has solidified the importance of purpose for Nina. You don’t know where you are going too, unless you can appreciate the long line of giants who paved the way to make your dreams possible. Nina appreciates authenticity above all else, and is addicted to high of creating music, and the magic of sharing it.

The voice of Amy Winehouse

Silk blazers
The Great Gatsby and the Paradiso Bar in Barcelona
Late night swimming in the ocean

Nina will always be found with hand sanitizer in her purse, preferably lavender scented.

The sunsets in Atlantic Beach on summer nights
The specificity of children's handwriting and the innocence that it encapsulates
Tye dye t-shirts and charcoal face masks, and tradition

She loves to experience culture
Rao’s in East Harlem
But she will always go for sushi no matter what time of day

The smell of the Upper West Side after it rains
Nina appreciates that we don’t know what tomorrow brings

The comfort of a yellow cab
Raspy voices, the smell of a cigar
The fear that is life
And the urge to pass every hurdle put in front of her

At a gathering if asked to sing, the answer is always yes.
