Nick Jaina, Live Session 76

by oz on August 18, 2010

Nick Jaina and band hail from Portland, OR and first got on our radar when we premiered his first single, “Days In My Room.” Jaina is a writer and musician that released A Bird In The Opera House earlier this year and, in true Renaissance Man-style, is currently working on a ballet.

After falling in love with A Bird In The Opera House, we were ecstatic to have Jaina and crew in for a live session during their tour stop in Chicago. They shared five songs that feature Jaina’s blend of folk, jazz, and incredible songwriting. The band’s musicianship shines through in the videos.
