Everybody's talking about Nerina

If you still haven’t heard the name Nerina Pallot then where have you been hiding? The Jersey girl turned singer/songwriter looks set to become the biggest thing to come from the island since Bergerac.


We’re only a few months into 2006 but it’s already been quite a year for Jersey born singer/songwriter Nerina Pallot:

She’s been on tour with James Blunt, appeared on the Dermot O’Leary show on BBC Radio Two, performed on Top of the Pops and last week ‘Everybody’s Gone to War’ was named Record of the Week on the Radio 1 Scott Mills’ show.

The song, from her second album Fires, will be released as a single on Monday 22 May, and Nerina is hoping that it will make it into the UK Top 40.

In an interview on BBC Radio Jersey with Edward Sault she said she found her rapid rise from the relative unknown to making the main play list on Radio 1 as “all a bit bonkers really”. 

Although Nerina now lives in London she says that Jersey, where she grew up, is still home; “it’s the place that shaped me, it’s my home island”, and she still has cousins and friends living over here.

Growing up in Jersey she felt that her musical talent was supported, she had great local piano and singing teachers, “the Eisteddfod was an amazing thing” and found that “although Jersey’s small I realise, from talking to people who grew up in England, we were very well catered for with the Arts.”

Adding, “I was lucky, really lucky, because it’s a small place it wasn’t too hard to get the attention you needed, and the music standard in Jersey is pretty high”.
