“But I only hear your voice, your voice
soars with the zing and precision of an arrow
it drops with the gravity of rain,
your voice scatters the highest swords
and returns with its cargo of violets:
it accompanies me through the sky.”
~ Pablo Neruda

"part Neko Case and part Billie Holiday, with a dash of Ragged Glory-era Neil Young thrown in for good measure." - OwlandBear

The Sweetheart of Americana
"Distinct as late career Joni Mitchell, strong as Emmylou Harris, warm as Mary Chapin Carpenter all rolled into one: an original is born.” Nena Anderson’s voice is velvet, a rich contralto, soulful and intimate to soaring, light-hearted and fun. Whether solo or with one of her backing bands, she is a seasoned live performer. With accessible and deceptively uncomplicated lyrics and a bluesy, Americana sound, Nena’s songs proves she can write timeless music for a modern audience. Performing in San Diego and touring nationally with various ensembles, her projects have earned 17 San Diego Music Award nominations (and a win), in the categories of Americana, Acoustic, Jazz, and New Artist.

Currently Nena fronts her solo band (Nena Anderson) as well as acclaimed honky-tonk band, Brawley. She is also a member of the collaborative album/concert project, For The Sender, and has toured with Johnny Cash Tribute, Cash’d Out, as June Carter Cash. She also produces an Americana night several times a year at Belly Up Tavern (Brawley’s BarRoom Ball,) and has shared stages with such artists as Lucinda Williams, Gregg Allman, and Dan Hicks. Nena plays Gretsch Guitars.
