Nina Nesbitt (born 11 July 1994) is a half-Scottish, half-Swedish singer-songwriter and musician, best known for her single “Stay Out”, which peaked at number 21 on the UK Singles Chart in April 2013, becoming her first top 40 single. Nina Nesbitt forced her way into the music industry at the tender age of 17 after a chance encounter and on-the-spot performance of her song “Standing on One Leg” for pop sensation Ed Sheeran in 2011, which led to support slots and an on-stage cameo with him during his nationwide tour. She originally wanted to be an author, and eventually used this talent to set her short stories to the music she wrote on her piano and later, acoustic guitar. At 16 she began performing in her hometown of Edinburgh, and created a YouTube channel where she posted a mixture of original songs and covers. Nesbitt’s exuberant mixture of pop-inspired melodies and brooding teen angst dealt with the youthful themes of boys, growing up, and heartbreak, sung in her sweet Scottish brogue.
“Chewing Gum” is her new single taken from the “Modern Love” EP. The video is directed by David Higgs.
