Nini & Ben
300 Athenaeum Street
The music of Nini & Ben is characterized by the rich textures of innocence and experience. The duo has spent years performing all over Europe and Australia, writing poignant songs, and falling in love with the gypsy life style. With gritty slide guitar and graceful pedal steel accentuating an acoustic sound, the music comes alive through delicate songwriting and masterful musicianship. Having been cowriters since their teenage years, Nini and Ben came to Berklee to study with some of the industry greats, and are featured on the latest disc from Berklee's student-run Heavy Rotation Records. The group has just finished recording its first full length album at Avatar Studios, in New York, to be released in the summer of 2009.
