Nina Nastasia

Nina Nastasia’s rare gift of a voice is an intimate, winged presence that
is able to either freeze or melt your heart; that can powerfully soar and
twist, or brush ultra-gently against you, suddenly summoning goose
bumps. Mojo commented on its ability to “suck the air out of the room”.
Picking over themes of love, longing and loss, childhood, dreams and
human dramas, her beautifully concise, hook-laden songwriting and the
spare arrangements of her band have a certain gritty, rustic charm and
intensity. Simultaneously tough and fragile, her songs crackle and
smolder with an intimate emotional honesty and a dark undertow.

“Riderless Horse obviously isn’t an easy listen. At times – as on “Go Away –
it gets dirgy. But its truth-hounding also delivers poetry and restful release.” –
The Independent *****

“It’s difficult to detach this record from the harrowing specificity of its
backstory, yet Riderless Horse never makes you feel like an intruder.” –
Mojo *****

“The cult American singer-songwriter endured 25 years of abuse at the
hands of her partner, an experience wrenchingly recorded in her first album
in 12 years.” – The Observer *****

“The album never breaks its focus on Nastasia’s voice, which is as raw and
radiant as ever. On “You Were So Mad,” it soars with defiant fury.” –
Pitchfork (7.8)

“Riderless Horse is far from an easy listen for obvious reasons. But hearing
the 56-year-old Nastasia describe and attempt to understand these stark
events is never less than compelling.” – The Telegraph ****
