Recognizing your one and only, and giving her the ring, that’s love
Sending letters to your one and only , with the hope of a safe coming back, that’s love
Family stories, told as legacies, with pride and admiration, that’s love
A great-grand-daughter singing about it all, as a moving tribute, that’s love
Nostalgy pictured into snapshots, memories captured into music.
Nina Lee, 17 year-old singer songwriter based in New York, has released her debut EP, titled Snapshots.
Along this 5 track collection, Lee testifies her love to her family, and how much she admires the relationships between her great grandparents and her grandparents.
This short album also shows how much her family environment has influenced her mind and music, has given her strength and ideal in life.
As an illustration, her opening track and main single is Airborne, a piece dedicated to her great-grandfather, World War II “Screaming Eagle” veteran and great-grandmother.
Her lyric video is as powerful as can be. These old pictures of the paratroopers set him as a man to be remembered as a true hero, while Nina Lee’s expressive yet calm and soothing voice gives the tale of his story.
This is her way to give comfort to her widowed great grandmother.
Her rendition is perfect. At such a young age, she’s able to master impressive vocal techniques. Outstanding vibratos, serious tone going crescendo, she’s got a voice with a great character. Nina Lee already recalls the likes of Adele.
Through her music, the young artist has also the talent to set up the portrait of the strong women in her family, who endured a lot. As one may say, behind a good man hides a great woman.
Snapshots is quite a family and humanist oriented project with intropesctive perspectives. Dealing with connections between people, and inner-strength, Lee is putting out an actual mature and thoughtful piece of work.
In the past, she made a song anti-bullying at school. She was only 14 but her vocal skills already were outstanding, indeed.
