NINA is born of Moravian & Norwegian descent with Bohemian tendencies
Nina’s debut albm , THE SHAPE OF YOU” is a collection of
Torch, Tangos, Bossa & Blues.
Inspired by Kahil Gibran …“ your sorrow is your joy unmasked”
Nina’s song choice reveals the vulnerabilities and strengths we experience along the path : juxtaposing opposite emotions;
finding at once, joy in loss and sadness in love; a happy heart and pain of the human condition.
welt schmerz. svět bolesti , mundo de dolor, monde de la douleur

“I believe our greatest quest is to
seek, know and keep love in our hearts
Only then can we dance with love
Only then can we sing with zeal
Only then can we laugh into the labyrinth of life,
To free our love “ … Nina Vox

Beautifully Mad Sydney, Australia

Breathtaking original music reminiscent of the beauty of James Taylor, some honey from Melody Gardot, a lyrical spice of Cohen washed down with some Waits-like humour. A musical flame that licks at the heels of Folk and Jazz

Track Name: The Shape of You
I hear the Music down the street
Calling my Pied Piper Feet
To join a ball of loose ends in a bar
There’s the band you hear in hell.... playing ... though it’s hard to tell
With music from the bottom of the jar

The Bass player’s stuck on his favourite string
The crowd are praying he doesn’t sing
And kill a tune they‘ve come to know and love
Hey why are all the seats reserved?
Is this the Jazz we all deserved?
Are we being punished from above?
And a shadow on the wall’s the Shape of You

The sax man charms a snake of smoke
And shuts his eyes until
the stroke of midnight when he needs to turn the page.

Carl Jung stirs his snare drum up
The brushes never wake him up
You can hear his Cymbals dreaming off the stage

You’d swear the chairs are sinking here
Like Venice with no Gondoliers
And everyone is leaning the past
The tarnished picture frame’s the Shape Of You

The trombone player slides around
Some memories from another town
He’s torturing a note that won’t give in
The piano man comes in too soon
and keeps his distance from the tune Don’t get between his left hand and his gin

I’m sitting wondering why I’m here
And something jabs me like a spear
The band is doing justice to our past
An arrangement that was never meant to last.
And the Rhythm in my heart’s the Shape Of You........
Track Name: So Sue Me
Don’t ever love a lawyer. they’re a dangerous breed
He’ll make you execute your duties, for the period agreed
He’ll say that he loves you, exclusively
He’ll say that he loves you ..........with respect to Clause B
He’ll subpoena colada's .. and waive his fee
He’ll take me to dinner... With a Justice of the Peace
Play me soft music, that he’s practised at the bar
He’s got a custom.... number plate on his car.

It just says Sue me Sue me Sue me so Sue me
Sue me Sue me Sue me so Sue me
Sue me Sue me Sue ..................

It’s hard for lawyers, to talk of love
With no reference to the terms above
He’d like to sweep me off my feet
When he’s checked his public liability.

My obligations are clearly defined
From the brand of the chocolates to the blend of the wine
Which parts of the poodle are his and are mine
Oops.... Did I forget to sign!

So Sue me Sue me Sue me Sue me ETC
