BIO

Nina Lifely is a folk singer-songwriter based in Bristol. Her beautifully crafted and heartfelt songs of hope and despair, love and desire are the fruit of healing from deep childhood trauma, the process of which has led to a long-overdue creative outpouring. Her lyricism and varied style lend a distinctiveness to her work, and her enchantingly pure voice blends eloquently with delicate guitar picking, and catchy rhythms and riffs.

 

Growing up in Gravesend, with the towers of Tilbury Power Station an ever-present backdrop, Nina’s challenging childhood was a poor fit for a sensitive, bright and creative child. Fortunately, she attended a school that fostered her obvious musicality. There she learned to express herself through playing the flute and singing with the Kent Youth Choir, and later Queens’ College Chapel Choir, Cambridge, where she was the first in her family to attend university. 

 

The music-making was interrupted by the demands of a career in social research and two children, to be resumed only when counselling unexpectedly unlocked her creativity. Her debut album, Dragonfly Clouds, was released on 8 June 2019.
