Nina Nesbitt turned labels down

08 March 2013

Nina Nesbitt turned down most record labels to preserve her creative freedom.

The 18-year old singer turned down offersfrom major record different labels before finally signing with Island and took her time because she wanted to grow and develop her own unique sound.

She told BANG Showbiz: ”I’ve met people from the industry that have been signed before when they were like 15 and they’ve had these labels turn them into something they don’t want. I never wanted that.

”I felt like I wanted to do it by myself. Not have the pressure of selling things and make it more about putting the music out there and seeing if people liked it.”

Nina was discovered by Ed Sheeran in 2011 after she played him a song at a radio gig and he invited her on tour, and she loves being on the road.

She said: ”I’m from a small village where everyone knows everyone. I think I’ve made a lot of new fans on the tour around the UK in places I’ve never visited before.

”I love travelling. I really wanted to travel anyway so it’s great to be able to do that as part of a job.”

Nina is releasing her EP ‘Stay Out’ on 8th April, she will also be playing London’s Islington Assembly Hall on March 12th and Edinburgh’s Liquid Room March 16th.

Statues MV + Lyrics and Chords

Statues (lyrics & chords)

Am F C G (play the C chord triad above these if on piano)

You’re just the statue

Of the boy I used to know
You’re just a tattoo
Of the words that we once spoke

You’re the dry river
Where the love used to flow
But it still runs through me
With you it had to go

Dm F C G

But if you take this back I’ll be waiting to come alive, come alive
If you turn your back I’ll be waiting to fly

Am F C G (play the C chord triad above these if on piano)

But you’re like the falling leaves
Whilst I’m still the oak tree
‘Cause you’re the one to leave
Now I’m falling asleep

You’re like the broken keys
Whilst I’m just a broken home
Cause as I breathe in deep you’re looking at me
Like a statue of the boy I used to know

You’re just a lighter
With no fuel to light our flame
You know I’d fight for this
But you wouldn’t do the same

‘Cause you’re just a diary
With a blank and empty page
But the story we wrote
I can’t quite erase

Dm F C G

But if you take this back I’ll be waiting to come alive, come alive
If you turn your back I’ll be waiting to fly

Am F C G (play the C chord triad above these if on piano)

But you’re like the falling leaves
Whilst I’m still the oak tree
‘Cause you’re the one that leaves
Now I’m falling asleep

You’re like the broken keys
Whilst I’m just a broken home
Cause as I breathe in deep you’re looking at me
Like a statue of the boy I used to know

Dm F C G

I’ll watch you fall to the ground
‘Cause there’s just stone in your eyes now
We had it all, till we were found
We’re just living these lies now

Am F C G (play the C chord triad above these if on piano)

‘Cause you’re like the falling leaves
Whilst I’m still the oak tree
‘Cause you’re the one to leave
Now I’m falling asleep

‘Cause you’re like the broken keys
Whilst I’m just a broken home
And I breathe in deep as I watch you leave
You’re statue of the boy I used to know

Just Before Goodbye MV + Lyrics and Chords

Just Before Goodbye (lyrics and chords)

 

Capo 4

code for alternative G

G2 = (move low E string finger to second fret)

G

You got new jeans, the hoody’s not gone

Em

i’m in a new dress that i’ve never worn

C

and I could have sworn

G

You didn’t bat an eye when I walked

Em

in to the room where I first thought

C

you could be the one

Am C G D

Have we been seeing the world through a piece of shattered glass?

Am C G D

Cause something so beautiful can fall apart so fast

G G2 Em C

Just before goodbye, you had the chance to change your mind

G G2 Em C

Just before you lied saying, you gave this your best try

G G2 Em C

It’s not enough to try, you have to give your blood and tears and time

Em C

You had one last chance to change your mind

G G2 Em C

Just before goodbye

G

Curtains are drawn but we’re still dressed

Em

the film plays on whilst under breath

C (same again)

I ask what is left now?

But you ignore, pretend that we’re fine

but we’re not together half of the time

how would I know the signs?

Am C G D

Have we been seeing the world through a piece of shattered glass?

Am C G D

Cause something so beautiful can fall apart so fast

G G2 Em C

Just before goodbye, you had the chance to change your mind

G G2 Em C

Just before you lied saying you ‘gave this your best try’

G G2 Em C

It’s not enough to try, you have to give your blood and tears and time,

Em C

take the world of hurt inside,

Em C

You had one last chance to change your mind

G G2 Em C

Just before goodbye

G G2 Em C

(instrumental)

G G2 Em C

Just before goodbye, you had the chance to change your mind

G G2 Em C

Just before you lied saying you ‘gave this your best try’

G G2 Em C

It’s not enough to try, you have to give your blood and tears and time,

Em C

take the world of hurt inside,

Em C

You had one last chance to change your mind

G G2 Em C

Just before goodbye
