Giovanina has been barreling through the music scene gathering influences every step of the way. It was blues for breakfast, lunch and dinner growing up as the youngest of four in her hometown of Plattsburgh, NY. She then found jazz, hip-hop, folk, soul, funk and the likes in between. She's never stopped listening. And so the inspiration continues to fold in from all directions.
Giovanina has been playing guitar since June of 2001 upon receiving a 1956 Martin as a gift. Uncovering a vocal style that is markedly hers has taken shape over time. As a solo performer, her taste is eclectic and her live show varies from gig to gig. She is an intimate writer. One who shares personal stories and experiences because writing about the big things just seems, well, too big.
A love for travel and consuming the world at large has led Giovanina all over the place, most recently back from Durango, CO to settle in Burlington, VT. Giovanina released two albums in the course of being back in NY, The Road Home (2012) and A Bit of Alright (2015). Check them out on Itunes, CDBaby, Amazon, Spotify and Pandora!
At present, Giovanina plays in Burlington-based band called, Nina's Brew. They're set to release their first EP in April 2018. For a complete rundown of the project, check out their website!
