Chicago Sound Check features Girl Named Nino

8 Chicago Acts That Caught Us by Surprise in 2018 -Daily Herald “She imbues her music… with a surreal vibe. The songs are less stories as much as they are frozen moments of feeling, evoking memories and emotions through elements of jazz, pop and electronica.” Brian Shamie (Daily Herald)

“A fantastic musician in her own right” Tony Sarabia (WBEZ, Radio M)

Business Post-ბიზნესპოსტი “უზარმაზარ ქვეყანაში მან თავის დამკვიდრება ინდივიდუალური, ყველაზე გამორჩეული მუსიკით შეძლო” - Keti Bachvelashvili

Dusty Groove Records "Captivating, genre-defying indie soul from Girl Named Nino – a girl originally from Tbilisi, Georgia who has long called the Chicago area home, has a sound as far reaching as her travels, but it still feels intimate and personal! Her voice is front-and-center throughout Moonlight Daughter, in both the vocals and in the distinctive songcraft, and it's strong on both fronts.  As a singer, she has a way of balancing classic jazz vocal influences with more modern soul, global/multi-lingual pop and even a bit of hip hop."

TBL PODCAST 10 Questions with Nino Arobelidze (starts at 26:50min marking)

"Couple of weeks ago I noticed a hullabaloo on Facebook about a musician who had done a show in Washington D.C. I looked her up-she's originally from Georgia, lives in Chicago. Her music is really great (and as you know, I hate almost all new music)- I talked to her and she is hair-raisingly insightful and interesting. Her name is Nino Arobelidze- she has a new album, called GIRL NAMED NINO. She's playing anywhere near you-do everybody a favor and go." Mark Mullen, TBLPOD
