  • Nina Simone

    I've been expanding my musical knowledge of the High Priestess of Soul lately, and find her voice and catalogue so rich.

      I completely agree, she's spoken highly of by almost every musician that speaks of her and she was used in Lemonade too

          Doing her write up in the UKMIX Ultimate Female Acts countdown, I was listening to her on Spotify - and she is phenomenal.

          Need to invest time in her music.

            She was the original bad bish.


            Her documentary on Netflix is phenomenal for all you that might be interested.

                A little 'bump' for this thread 😁!

                I've been listening to Nina Simone absolutely non stop recently .. from Feeling Good, Ain't Got No, I Got Life, I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl, Here Comes the Sun and Black is the Colour of My True Love's Hair to Ne Me Quitte Pas first thing upon waking today (alongside the Jacques Brel original version ☺) .. what a phenominal talent Nina was and continually proves herself to be. She is still so underrated in the music world but nothing can take away her raw talent, heavenly musicianship and beautiful soul.

                    Nina Simone’s 1982 album Fodder on My Wings is getting reissued on vinyl and CD and will also be available on digital streaming platforms for the first time ever. The new release arrives April 3 via Verve/UMe. Watch a new lyric video for “I Sing Just to Know That I’m Alive” below.
