Nina Hynes plays spordic shows and creates boutique theatrical performances.

She has toured extensively in the US and in Europe and over the years, supported many well-known acts including Roxy Music,

Stereolab, Glen Hansard Damien Rice, Julie Cruise, Smog, David Gray, Joan as a Police Woman.

Nina Hynes has been releasing albums since 1999.

She spent her childhood believing she would be a film director/photographer and an actress. She grew up in Ireland and studied drama and theatre from the age of 3 and spent most of her teenage years attending plays at The Gate, The Abbey, The Focus Theatre and any new and exciting small theatres or workshops that she could find. She spent two years attending the renowned Deirdre O'Connell's Saturday salons at The Focus Theatre. Life had other plans though and music took over.

After taking a year out in the wilds of Donegal, she busked in Dublin and Paris for a couple of years and then began to play weekly at the songwriting night in The International bar in Dublin. This led to touring in Europe(1997-1998), playing electric guitar, singing and making sounds with experimental legends Hector Zazou, Harold Budd, Christian Le Chevretel and Alex Kid.

She had been playing around with a Fostex 8 channel 4 track tape machine for years but in 2003, she made the decision to study sound engineering and music technology so she would not have to rely soley on sound engineers to express herself. Experimentation, observations, emotions, songs and stories remain at the core of her work. Playfulness and a general feeling of drifting in a Sci-Fi has been a recurring theme.

She has released 5 solo records independently and contiues to create and produce work that she releases regulary on her own label Transplant Records.
