Cooking Vinyl has announced the signing of acclaimed Scottish singer songwriter Nina Nesbitt to a global artist services deal.
The agreement will see the label Nina’s new, as-yet-untitled album – the follow up to 2014’s Peroxide – in spring 2017.
Born in Edinburgh Nina started her music career by writing and recording songs in her bedroom. Ed Sheeran was an early fan of her work and invited her to support him on his European tour and to appear in one of his videos.
She subsequently signed to Island Records in 2012 and released several well received EPs alongside her debut album Peroxide.
Rob Collins, Cooking Vinyl managing director, said: ‘I saw Nina play six months ago at the Scala and it was one of those moments like seeing Ryan Adams solo when Heartbreaker came out. I knew on the spot that I wanted to make a record with her.’
Vicky Dowdall of VDM Music and Nina’s manager, said: ‘I’m extremely proud that Nina has signed to Cooking Vinyl. It’s sometimes hard for artists when they come out of major labels. They are often overlooked or seen as ‘old news’ in the Industry, which makes it hard for the artist to move forward and for the manager to get a new deal. Real talent always shines through and that’s proven by some of the most successful artists in the world who have been through exactly the same thing. It shows strength and self-belief and Cooking Vinyl spotted Nina’s talent straight away. We are very excited about 2017.’
Nina Nesbitt said: ‘I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be putting my next album out on Cooking Vinyl. There are many paths to get to where you want to be and mine has certainly been a challenging and exciting one so far. Working with the Cooking Vinyl team feels like a big step in the right direction and it’s going to be a very creative and collaborative experience for myself and my manager and I can’t wait to get started.’
Meanwhile, Cooking Vinyl recently announced plans to celebrate its 30th anniversary with live gigs, book and a new fund investing £30,000 in emerging acts.
