Nina de Freitas is a singer-songwriter currently residing in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Born in Brazil to musician parents, Nina wrote her first song at age five and hasn’t stopped since.

Nina has previously collaborated with several artists, the most recognizable of which are her father, Academy Award nominee Carlinhos Brown, and Slow Magic. After years of false starts, heartaches, and frustrations, Nina is finally releasing her debut EP for all to hear. Within is a collection of torch songs that echo a musical upbringing rich in diversity that includes artists from Jeff Buckley to Nina Simone and Radiohead to Neil Young.

Spinning Towards The Edge showcases Nina’s strong songwriting ability, and penchant for crafting luxurious melodies and musical textures. But above all, it shines a spotlight on her voice that blankets and envelops listeners in a velvet-like sheet of yearning and warmth.

Track Name: It Ain't Easy
I went across the bridge to see
How easily you'd forget me
And oh the depth of misery
For my soul but for my spirit peace

The wine that caused my will to bend
then dried and left my heart to fend
will never again pass my lips
and weaken them against your kiss

And it hurts but it doesn't
It hurts but it doesn't
And I thought that it would be the worst
but it wasn't
And I know that I love you
I know that I love you
But I'm learning that my love is so high above you

What at first was my heavy regret
Has resolved into a needed rest
And the further that I go from you
The closer I am to the truth

One day I hope you see me high
Boy then you'll wish that you could fly
Cause it ain't easy being in love
No, it's the truth that proves too much
Track Name: I Was In Love With You
You're a simple man, I know
But you held me by the soul
And I sent you off although

I was in love with you
I was in love with you

You're a blinded fool, I see
Still I want you to see me
Be the gaze you choose to keep

I was in love with you
I was in love with you

Heart in the center of
A wheel spinning towards the edge
All I know falling in
A pit that never sees its end
Track Name: Oh Ezra
Even though you're further from me
I do love you still
I cannot begin to reason
All my sorrowed fill

Oh Ezra
I'm sorry
I wouldn't believe you
They kept me from seeing your light
Oh Ezra
I'm sorry
I couldn't perceive you
Were standing in the light

I've been waiting for the answers
Seems my whole life long
No one offers me their comfort
Every tear brands me with wrong

Won't you come for me?
Ezra, now I see

Now I seek you in the morning
When the stars still gleam
I look for your eyes
In the sunrise
But I must meet you in my dreams
Track Name: Always Wait
Sometimes I think you might love me
Then I think twice
And then I think about how it's
Not very nice

How you make me wait for you
How you make me wait

And then I cry myself silly
Or till I drown
Watching you with some spellbound honey
You always have around

You always make me wait for you
You always make me wait for you

And I'm gonna tell you one day
Oh, don't you come around here
I'm gonna tell you one day
But one day
You just might ask me to stay
So baby I will always wait for you

I hope you wonder about me
I hope you see
That of all the hearts you've been breaking
It's always been me

But you make me wait for you
You always make me wait and wait for you...
