Sydney songwriter and musician Nina Gotsis has recorded a follow-up to her debut solo EP Music Colours with The Nina Gotsis Band (Art Colours), featuring Toby Martin (Youth Group) and Sam Worrad (The Holy Soul).
The first taste of Art Colours (due later in 2023) is the haunting and lovely ‘Treefall in the Middle of the Road’, released on June 3 – Nina’s birthday.
Inspired by a walk through the neighbourhood after a thunderstorm, “‘Treefall …’ was mostly recorded live into one mic in Nina’s spare room, captured by Aria-nominated producer Chris Hamer-Smith.
“I have been writing songs since my late 20s,” said Nina. “Since I started, a lot of the things I see have been very special to me, and I love to share them.”
Toby Martin said, “I love singing Nina’s songs. I feel I can really get inside them, and live in them. And what a beautiful world it is to live in. Nina sees the world differently, she is an artist like that.”
Nina learned guitar in her old home at Bardwell Park – spending hours honing an interest in classic progressions and distinctive strumming patterns.
She was a member of the Junction House Band with Lindy Morrison (Go-Betweens), and in recent years she started to work with the Club Weld studio for neurodivergent musicians (based in ACE Parramatta). Nina has also collaborated with the River City Voices symphonic choir.
