NINA JUNE // BON VOYAGE
At the beginning of 2016, Dutch artist Nina June presented her new musical project BON VOYAGE,
accompanied by her first track For Love.
BON VOYAGE is a display of Nina’s view of the world; “It is about the hidden loneliness of our
generation. We are all young, beautiful and talented. But also searching. For love, freedom and our
personal mission. We have never before been so interconnected, yet we are alone in this journey.
BON VOYAGE is a greeting to everyone who faces this quest.
For Love, the first track of BON VOYAGE, was officially released as a single in January 2016. The song
went viral in the Spotify charts and was added to many (international) playlists. The song has been
streamed almost 2 million times so far. For Love was also added to the Dutch Radio 2 playlist and
synced in a major Dutch movie. The track has also been chosen as one of the best tracks of 2016 by
Dutch Radio 2.
Nina June combines both organic and electronic influences and finds inspiration in the songs of Rhye,
Zero7, the soundtracks of American Beauty, The Piano and Les Intouchables and the instrumental
music of René Aubry and Chilly Gonzalez. The result – a series of atmospheric, cinematic popsongs.
Born in the Netherlands, the now Amsterdam- based singer toured in the Netherlands and the UK
after graduating from the Rockacademy. If We Never Go is the 5th release to come from BON
VOYGAGE. Nina’s last single “When We Fall” got featured on many international blogs. The album is
planned for January 2018.
‘Vocally, Nina June evokes comparisons with Ane Brun and Agnes Obel, but her artistic vision paints
itself from a very different emotional palate to create a unique and poignant sound’ – Electronic North
‘the piano ballad brings forth ideas of London Grammar synced to a plaintive orchestra of Agnes Obel,
each swell in movement is purposefully delivered and thoroughly felt. Twinning both classical organic
elements to modern electronic production’ – Bitter Sweet Symphonies (UK)
