France's Nina Attal received her first guitar at 12 years old, and grew up immersed in the blues, soul and funk, in particular the music of B.B. King, Etta James and Koko Taylor. Later, she discovered Sharon Jones, Prince and Lenny Kravitz. In 2009, she snapped up nearly all the prizes at the Festival Blues sur Seine, which led to her touring festivals across France, as well as an appearance at Festiblues de Montréal. In 2010 she put out a mini-CD of original compositions (written with Philippe Devin), recorded at Abbey Road, in London, which was soon followed by her debut album, Urgency, released in 2010. Yellow 6/17 came out in 2011.
