A singer-songwriter from Minnesota, A bassist from New Zealand and a photo-journalist from New Jersey walk into a bar. I’m serious!! Before the show started I was able to sit down with Nina Yasmineh, who I’d gotten to interview a couple of weeks ago and Andrew White, her hip and talented bassist. I found out this was the first time they played a live show together, which by the way, I would’ve never been able to tell.
On stage, they completely knew what they were doing and the looks they gave each other while performing; you could tell the chemistry they had couldn’t be something they rehearsed. It was just there. With Nina’s warm and soft vocals and Andrew’s perfect way of bringing everything together, I feel like they can really go places. Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn was the perfect intimate setting for this duo. Which, if you’ve read any of my articles you’d know those small acoustic and wholehearted type of shows are my absolute favorite. Some songs they performed that I really dig and will probably make a 2015 mixtape including these songs are: “Hurricane Drops,” “Dark Heart,” and Nina’s rendition of “Summertime Sadness.”
