Nina Nesbitt - Nina Nesbitt turned labels down

Nina Nesbitt turned down most record labels to preserve her creative freedom.

The 18-year old singer turned down offers from major record different labels before finally signing with Island and took her time because she wanted to grow and develop her own unique sound.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''I've met people from the industry that have been signed before when they were like 15 and they've had these labels turn them into something they don't want. I never wanted that.

''I felt like I wanted to do it by myself. Not have the pressure of selling things and make it more about putting the music out there and seeing if people liked it.''

Nina was discovered by Ed Sheeran in 2011 after she played him a song at a radio gig and he invited her on tour, and she loves being on the road.

She said: ''I'm from a small village where everyone knows everyone. I think I've made a lot of new fans on the tour around the UK in places I've never visited before.

''I love travelling. I really wanted to travel anyway so it's great to be able to do that as part of a job.''

Nina is releasing her EP 'Stay Out' on 8th April, she will also be playing London's Islington Assembly Hall on March 12th and Edinburgh's Liquid Room March 16th.
