Nell Bryden has the heart of an artist, the mind of a storyteller and the restless soul of a troubadour.
These traits are in the genes of the native New Yorker – her parents are a painter and opera singer. But the self-belief and tireless work ethic that have seen her travel 300,000 miles to play 1,400 shows over the past 10 years are all her own. Along the way Nell Bryden has picked up numerous fans, a few good friends, and a lifetime of tales to tell.
Nell’s debut UK album release 'What Does It Take' was released in 2009 and generated six playlisted singles on BBC Radio 2, including 'Not Like Loving You' and 'Goodbye' - still heard regularly on British radio.
Her second album 'Shake The Tree' was released in 2012. Support from the likes of Radio 2 and Smooth Radio continued for singles including 'Buildings And Treetops' and 'Shake The Tree' but it was 'Sirens' that caught the ear of Gary Barlow, who on hearing the song immediately invited her to support him on his 25 date tour of the UK.
Nell also supported Chris Rea, Jools Holland and Duane Eddy in 2012 and 2013, completing over 100 shows in the UK during an 18 month period.
Nell's debut UK live album "Live in London" was released in 2013 and she is currently finishing her third studio album for released in 2014
