Nell Bryden Biography

thumb|Nell Bryden in 2008. Nell Bryden (born March 8th, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, to parents themselves a singer and artist.

A classically trained musician (she studied the cello for ten years), Bryden dreamed of becoming an opera singer before hearing Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin for the first time. After a year spent in Australia honing her craft, Bryden attended Boston University where she graduated in English Literature with honours. It was during this time that she began performing her songs live. Following this, she returned to New York in the aftermath of 9/11 and recorded an album in Nashville.

After coming across a Milton Avery painting during an attic clear out (a gift from her father when she was still a baby), Bryden auctioned the piece and received a substantial amount for it. She then used the money to re-record her album, but this time around bringing on board Grammy-winning record producer David Kershenbaum.

The resulting album What Does it Take came out on 12th October 2009 on Cooking Vinyl in the UK and Ireland, and has enjoyed considerable critical success.

Bryden is currently touring the UK, and Northern Ireland.
