Mike Brewster and I are teaming up for quite a few gigs this spring under the name, Nina's Brew. He's blues. He's soul. He's groove. He plays a tasty guitar and has a hell of a voice. In other words, come enjoy the jams with us! Fellow, crazy-talented friend, Isaac French, will also be joining us for some trio and full band gigs. And he's the jam. Nina's Brew is taking shape and molding and we're navigating this ever-evolving journey that is music, together. And I couldn't be more thrilled about that. Stay tuned for show updates, announcements, recordings, etc.!
In other news... thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for supporting local music by folks, like us, who are working like hell to write and bring you original tunes... an extension of ourselves through our raw, untold, messy, beautiful stories.
Michael Lashomb (Annie in the Water) and I tucked ourselves away on Lake Champlain not too long ago to reboot, practice, and take in all that is the beautiful Adirondacks. We managed to learn one of my favorites by The Boss, I'm On Fire.
New shows, new venues, and new special guests-2017 is shapin' up real nice, my friends. I hope to catch your fine faces on the road. You can scoot to the shows page for a full list of what's to come.
Giovanina was invited to write an original song for Vermont Public Radio's recent addition to their podcast lineup, No Makeup, hosted by Tiffany Bluemle and produced by Marissa Parisi. The podcast is a celebration of women who are doing empowering work in both their personal and professional lives. The stories shared are raw and real, and thus the lyrical inspiration for Giovanina's new song (also titled, No Makeup).
