Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with some fantastic artists, such as Nina Smith, who continues to be one of the most popular musicians on the Nottingham music scene and further afield.
Nina earned rave reviews for her first EP, dubbed as ‘definitely one to watch’ (BBC), and her second EP, This Love, reached No. 4 in the Top 10 of the iTunes R&B/Soul charts.
If you’ve not yet heard Nina, you need to – check out http://www.ninasmithmusic.com – and you can check out our collab below.

Working with the G.O.A choir for me has been one of the most inspiring experiences I’ve had to date. We teamed up to perform and film our own rendition of R.E.M’s ‘Everybody Hurts’. This was such a successful collaboration that I felt it needed to be performed at some for the main events I had lined up in 2013. Them being; The Theatre Royal where I was performing with an orchestra, Splendour festival in Nottingham and finally at a sold out showcase I held at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms. The professionalism and capacity to create new and interesting vocal pieces was a key part to completing the project to such a high standard. I look forward to working with them very soon.

> Nottingham Post Review of the #NottinghamRocks gig at Theatre Royal:
For the final number of the first half, the twelve-piece G.O.A Choir joined the already crowded stage, for a reworking of R.E.M’s Everybody Hurts which soon spun far away from the original, turning itself into a whole new track. Glammed up to the nines, with outlandish costumes, hair and make-up, the self-styled “Gang of Angels” provided a suitably celestial chorus, as Nina Smith brought her set to a triumphant conclusion.
