The Bizz Nizz

“…absolutely a star in the making. With epic songs, an immense and pitch-perfect vocal… an artist with a hell of a lot of passion and pure soul.”
The Musical Melting Pot

To mix thoughtful and catchy songs with a uniquely arresting voice and breathtaking beauty is a classic recipe for pop success. But singer/songwriter Nina has also shown a mature determination to achieve an international career.

Classically trained and having successfully completed a Degree in Vocal Performance at the Academy of Contemporary Music she has done a great deal of professional work to widespread acclaim. Known as a singer from her early years she has performed in public since the age of 16. Nina was delighted to be invited to perform at the Montreux Jazz Festival, sharing the bill with the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Seal, Lily Allen, Jeff Beck, Gnarls Barkley and Ben’s Brother. Since then, she has continued to perform live as well as working closely with internationally noted Producer Richard Niles (Sir Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Mariah Carey, Kylie Minogue, Westlife, Tom Jones) with whom she has already produced two singles. She has worked in collaboration with musicians such as Richard Cottle (David Bowie, Seal, Tina Turner), the famous photographer Angelo Valentino (Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Usher) and one of America’s hottest designers, Arianna Power (Kayne West, Estelle, Metro Station).

Nina has performed her songs at venues across the UK such as The Buxton Dome, The Stoke Mandeville Stadium for the Paralympics Torch Lighting Event and many festivals. She was given the honour of singing at a British war hero’s funeral at Winchester Cathedral and has since taken a passionate interest in supporting British troops including composing a beautifully moving song, “Slow Down Soldier” performed in support of Help for Heroes. The song reached number 4 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts, overtaking both Damien Rice and Eva Cassidy.

As well as supporting John Power (The La’s/Cast) on two occasions, she has taken part in the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards. Radio airplay includes coverage by local stations such as Win FM, and, in addition to recorded plays, live studio performances for BBC Southern Counties Radio on South Live (syndicated across the southern counties), BBC Solent Radio, Hampshire and Guildford University Radio, Surrey. In addition to interviews on local TV, Nina recorded with the ACM Gospel Choir as aired on the BBC2 TV show “Genius” in March 2009 and was a featured artist on the Channel 5 advert for “Don’t Stop Believing” with Emma Bunton in a national campaign.

Nina’s eagerly anticipated single “Colours” will be released in 2014 with her EP following shortly after.

“Imagine a young (and easier to relate to) Tori Amos, with a dollop of PJ Harvey and a sprinkling of Kate Bush and you’re somewhere around half way there….” www.01962.com

“[Nina has] an exceptional talent for creating original and catchy hooks in her song-writing”. (Phil Jackson Southern Counties Radio, host)

“[Nina shows] a brave approach to her music, not afraid to take risks…confident… kooky…in control… and totally absorbing – a voice that [I] will not forget.” (The Industry Panel, South Live)

“exceptional and unique… [I] could easily imagine a crowd at a festival singing along…”. (Sally Taylor, BBC Radio Solent)

“[Nina has] a beautiful voice that you simply have to hear!” (GU2 DJ, Andy Vale)

“Sweet, soulful, jazzy and dare I say “Lullaby-esque”.
(thetruejoe90)

“There are many reasons to listen to the phenomenal artist Nina Schofield…. the collective body of work by Ms. Schofield truly doesn’t disappoint. She is a soulful young woman working with great material.”
