Today, New York City-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Nina Lee has released her poignant new single “Airborne” – LISTEN HERE. The heartfelt and very personal song, which premiered via Variance Magazine, is the first taste of her forthcoming debut EP entitled Snapshots, out November 10th. Featuring Nina’s stunning, smoky vocals, stark piano keys, and a big-screen worthy narrative, “Airborne” was inspired by her family story. Nina penned the song after discovering 70-year-old, heartfelt letters exchanged between her great-grandfather, a World War II “Screaming Eagle” veteran, and her great-grandmother – the woman behind the man whose steady support and quiet devotion never wavered.
Nina Lee is just 17 years old, but her songwriting taps into a soul that is well beyond her years, telling vivid, moving stories about everything from the power of family, to the effects of bullying, to the importance of inner strength. The Snapshots EP is just what the title suggests – a collage of moments in time that take us on a journey, whether traveling back to years gone by or sharing confessional tales from the present. Possessing a captivating voice that immediately enchants and an indie spirit, Nina is known to break out her ukelele (she taught herself both baritone and tenor ukelele), and also has a knack for piano and guitar. With hummable melodies, a charming delivery and evocative lyrics, Nina is a refreshing and promising new voice that will capture your ears and your heart.
