Nino is currently recording her latest album Lost at the Bazaar and gearing up for her Spring/Summer 2017 tour.
Nino moved to the U.S. as a teenager and while attending DePaul University Music School put together her first group, The CrossRoads Project, self-releasing her Strange Brew EP in 2011. Her first full length solo release, NOMAD in 2014 established her as an artist to watch among numerous media outlets while her live performances continued to gain momentum with listeners. "In each of her songs you can hear the underlying of jazz cruising over the cool, subtle beats" wrote Cynthia Crawford (The Chronicle), while Tony Sarabia of WBEZ compared Nino's voice to Billie Holiday's (WorldView).
Building on the 2016 national tour that earned Girl Named Nino accolades and sold out shows in NYC, L.A., Chicago, Libertyville and Madison among others, Nino (voice/guitar/piano), joined by Pablo Gordy (guitar/voice) and Meg Thomas (drums/percussion) will be kicking off the Lost at the Bazaar Tour at Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) on Saturday, April 29th .
