Nina Natasha.

For singer songwriter Nina Nastasia, her harrowing personal journey is bared through her music as she charts her heartbreaking and wrenching tale through song.

Nastasia weaves a dark tapestry through her latest work, Riderless Horse, creating an album that is both difficult and cathartic.

Her searing honesty and raw emotion allow her to connect with her audience in an intimate way. Raised in California, she has released seven albums to critical acclaim. Now, she brings her style of folk, Americana with Gothic overtones to Monroe’s Live on Thursday, April 20 at 8pm with support by Paul Spring.

Her defiant fury, soaring vocals and penetrating lyrics bring to life the tragic experiences she has endured since she disappeared from the public eye after a soaring early career. Offering a voice to those who have lived through tragedy and the mental health impact of a turbulent relationship, Nastasia returns to the global stage with renewed energy.

Both tough and fragile, her songs delve into the themes of love and loss with grit and delicacy. The prominence of her acoustic guitar, often accompanied by cello, violin and viola allows her to craft restrained melodies with warmth and grace, earning her comparisons to Tom Waits, Devendra Banhart, Neko Case, and Cat Power.

Described as having a voice ‘as raw and radiant as ever’ her powerful catalogue of music provides her the platform to work through difficult events with the talent and ability of a true artist. The backstage bar at Monroe’s Live provides the perfect setting for this night of captivating music on April 20.
