Nina Ferraro

Add Date: October 18 

Artist: Nina Ferraro 

Album: The Promise (EP) 

Label: Self-released 

Genre: Folk pop, folk rock 

Comments: This fortuitously-titled 5-song EP from the Chicago-based artist Nina Ferraro shows a vast amount of potential; written and recorded in 2010 when she was all of 15 years old, this is very solid folk pop. Ferraro's bright vocals and the rich instrumentation of The Promise--everything from banjo to ukulele to horns to, yes, accordion--elevates this above your standard singer/songwriter pop release.

Try "I've Found You", the 100-second pop song "Same Boy" and the folksy ballad "Too Late".
