Nina Baker - 'Bruising' Out June 2nd 2014
'Bruising' is the second single release by Nina Baker from her self-produced
debut album 'Quite Frankly'.
The young classically trained pianist-singer-songwriter from Leamington Spa
has had a great start to 2014.
Her debut track 'Single Bed' was released in January and played on BBC Radio 2 and supported by Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music. She has also supported Ella Eyre, Henrik Freischlader & Mick Flannery on their UK & European Tours.
But whereas her debut single was a tongue-in-cheek retort to past relationships,
'Bruising' opens up another avenue into the persona of Nina Baker. A darker,
more vulnerable and far more hurting side than her calm & elegant exterior
would ever imply.
The foundation of 'Bruising' is the tale of a long term relationship breaking up,
well before the end. Lines such as "One more chance you keep saying, one
more chance as if I can take it" & "Your lies bruising me" describe the anguish
of an innocent party in a deceitful & failing partnership.
From the military, machine-gun like drums, you are thrown into a war zone
from the outset. There are tender moments, but these are soon ended with
sudden stops, screaming frustration & a need of salvation - All of which build
to a mighty crescendo.
This is a more powerful & edgier Nina Baker, synonymous with her live show. She and her band are playing a lot of gigs all over the country right now.
Her piano riffs hammer hard like tubular bells of confusion, the bass-lines
pound like a heart-beat full of adrenaline and her anguish-soaked vocals
whisper & shout in torment.
‘Bruising' is released on June 2nd and the album ‘Quite Frankly’ hits the shelves
later this year in August.
Nina was runner-up last year of MTV’s Brand New competition this year, which sought out the creme de la creme of new music across the nation.
Joined by top producers such as Nick Brine, Tristan Ivemy & John Themis at Rockfield Studios, The Church & Abbey Road - the last 18 months has been devoted to making her masterpiece album which she wrote, arranged & co-produced.
Nina draws her influence from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone and Kate Bush, and writes a fusion of genres - from typical pop, to folk and rock - while also brushing on jazz, country and skiffle.

Johnny Cooper who is based in Texas, USA.
Johnny Cooper now returns with his new single Thank You which was written for his friends and family who have supported him over the years.
Quoted as being Texas music served on a bed of Red Dirt and being a force of nature, Johnny Cooper has been winning plaudits all across the US as a result of his heavy gig schedule which averages 200 shows each year. This also helped contribute to his debut album Ignition selling over 25,000 copies and seeing four of his tracks climbing the Texas Music Charts.
With a large number of recordings under his belt, two tracks included on the soundtrack for independent movie Deep In The Heart, and recent sponsorship by a well known drinks firm, Johnny Cooper has already accomplished more in his career than many musicians can only dream about, and with radio stations already picking up on his new single, it is likely you will be hearing even more from him over the coming months.
