Heart-on-her-sleeve Nina Schofield continues her musical evolution with a personal confession on her new breezy, alt-pop single ‘Not Perfect Now’ out this January 2021.
Nina’s first self produced track, she says: “I wrote Not Perfect Now after realising I had this internal battle going on between two different parts of myself; the part that pushes to always make things perfect and says ‘nothing is good enough’ (“Don’t give me your best, give me even more than that”) and the part that wants me to be my own best friend and treat myself with kindness (“Take back the pressure you place on me and watch as I rise up in your release”). It’s something I think a lot of us silently go through every day and it’s still an uphill battle for me.”
For those of you still unsure of Nina Schofield’s credentials, here’s a reminder…with an 100,000 strong audience on her Youtube channel, a no.4 iTunes singer/songwriter chart hit, nominations for Best Female Artist on both sides of the Atlantic (Best of British Music Awards and the Hollywood Music in Media Awards), live appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival, sold out tours across the UK supporting the likes of Nell Bryden and BBC show winning band Sons of Pitches, co writing and featuring on the electronic hit ‘Lift You Up’ with Aurosonic & Frainbreeze, being head hunted by Dutch Pop/R&B band Romeo to join them on their sell out come-back show and a number 1 dance record in Slovakia with Vintage and Morelli – Nina Schofield is one sharp cookie.
Added to which, she co-wrote and co-worked with Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winners and nominees with a striking list of names such as Morrisey’s Richard Niles, Gabrielle Aplin’s Tom Wilding and Tina Turner’s Steve DuBerry. Her single ‘Imaginary Love’ was chosen as Record Of The Day and supported by BBC radio stations across the UK. Top that off with a highly acclaimed single ‘My Life’ written in Stockholm with FMLY STHLM (Robyn/One Direction) and the release of her follow up singles ‘Thriving’ and ‘Ghost’ and it’s clear to see you have a recipe for pop success.
Last year also saw the release of Nina’s song ‘The Gift’ which resulted in her featured live performance in the BBC Richard Gere drama ‘MotherFatherSon’ which has since been broadcast globally. Nina’s focus now remains on her writing, producing and Youtube career as well as continuing her work with chart toppers all over the world. Soon she will feature as an expert in a brand new documentary shot in New York all about the America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal, and from there, the opportunities are endless…
