Chatterbox: Nina Luna

Could you tell our readers a little bit about yourself?

I’m a singer-songwriter currently based in LA. I grew up in Minnesota near Minneapolis and went to college at New York University where I was a European Studies major. I knew I wanted to be a professional musician since I was very young and while I was at NYU I kept writing songs and performing around the city.

I also started producing my own stuff on Garageband for the first time. I really had no idea what I was doing but it helped me explore new sounds and get inspired. I moved to LA last April because as much as I love NYC, it felt like the heart of the creative scene, especially the pop music scene, was out here. It was definitely the right decision.

Where did the new single come from?

‘String’ is the second single I’ve released this year and it’s about not being able to get over somebody even when you know there’s no future in it. It’s a situation I’ve been in more than once and it’s kind of torture. This song’s got a bit of a dreamy, mystical element which a lot of my music has. I produced a good portion of the track and then Brent Puls (of LA band CATALINE) cleaned it up and made it extra shiny and pop, as well as mixed it.

Is there more content in the pipeline?

Yes! I’ve got a couple more singles (with a few collaborations) that I’ll be releasing through the spring, which I’m excited to share.

What’s on the horizon for you?

I’m writing new music (like always) and hoping to record it soon! I’m also working on putting together a live set and getting some LA gigs set up. Just trying to constantly do better work and make music that resonates with people. Stay tuned!
