Neen is the artist name of Nina Kærsgaard Hansen from the southern Sealand in Denmark. She’s the only child and that led on to growing up to learn to entertain herself, which she did by playing piano and singing. She also entertained herself as dressage rider from 8 to 16 years old and so successfully with the fourth place at the Danish Championship when she was 13 years old. As said, Nina started young and had a teacher who understood how much stories Nina had to tell and helped her put them into songs. Nina wrote her first song (Her ved mit klaver), a song that made it to the fifth spot in the Danish kids Eurovision (Melodi grand prix). Nina continued then working on her craft and went on to taking classes in songwriting and production. Nina says she’s inspired by many different people. People who tell stories, and aren’t afraid to show all sides of themselves, good, bad, strong, weak etc., because that’s how it is to be human. People who dare to dream and fight for their dreams.
‘I’ve always lived with the thought that I’d rather say ’I tried, but I didn’t make it, than say I wish I’d tried’.
