When Nina Nesbitt released her debut album Peroxide in February 2014, she was be just 19. That the half Scottish, half Swedish singer/songwriter has already spent two years putting out EPs, touring the country and steadily building her fan base – her video views stand at more than 20 million and over 130,000 follow her on Twitter – makes her early start all the more remarkable.
Some may lazily label Nina as a mainstream pop artist but her career approach has a lot more in common with the DIY ethic of punk. Not afraid to experiment with genre, she is a songwriter who has built her career by gigging relentlessly and even makes her own tour T-shirts. Since being discovered by Ed Sheeran at the age of 16 and self-releasing her debut EP, The Apple Tree, signing to Island Records and being named ’Singer/Songwriter New Artist of the Year‘ by iTunes at the tail-end of 2012, Nina’s natural knack for songwriting has been honed by months spent in the studio with producer Jake Gosling (Paloma Faith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction) and working with Iain Archer (Jake Bugg).
DHP Concerts and The Arches are proud to welcome Nesbitt to Glasgow as part of her Acoustic Christmas Tour.
£12.50 + £1.25 BF & £1.50 TF (Web Only)

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
