Nadine Loren Infuses Opera Training Into 1980s Style

"Swiss born, Kiwi singer-songwriter Nadine Loren is set to release her sophomore album on July 4th. The album features 11 covers of classic songs from the 80’s as well as two original tracks written by Loren herself. Naked ‘80’s celebrates some of the decade's best songs, but gives them a modern twist, completely stripping them of all their synthesized elements. The bare songs are then reinvented to have a fresh sound with all real instrumentation. What makes these remakes even more unique is that many are hauntingly infused with opera - it's a must listen. Naked ‘80’s is produced by the legendary hit-maker Peter Asher who has produced 12 Grammy Award Winning albums and has twice been voted 'Producer of the Year' by the Grammy's. Peter was the Head of A&R for the Beatles' Apple label and former VP of Music Entertainment at Sony. Nadine Loren does not fit
snugly into any box. Her debut album Living In Wonderland was nominated for Pop Album Of The Year at the 2009 L.A Music Awards, and the trained opera singer, accomplished pop vocalist, pianist and guitarist is also a former lawyer and actress. Loren straddles these many multiplicities while infusing her music with elements of opera, pop, rock, jazz and country on Naked ‘80’s. The album pays homage to her favorite tunes of the decade, tunes that left an impression on Loren as a young girl. Now based in Los Angeles, Loren does extensive touring in the US, as well as shows in New Zealand and Australia. In her (limited) downtime Loren is committed to making a difference and helping others. She sits on the board of Glamour Gals, is involved with the Make A Wish Foundation (NYC), the Lu Parker Project and The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis as well as APLA with their annual Art Project Los Angeles."
