Princess Nostalgia has always been a one-woman show on and off the stage. The internationally-based producer, composer, director, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has carefully curated every aspect of her artistry. Yet, recently, Princess Nostalgia had an epiphany that her staunchly defiant autonomy maybe was inhibiting her growth. So, she manifested a co-producer in multi-platinum producer, engineer, and recording artist David Hillis (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Afghan Whigs, James Blunt).
Today, she prepares to step forward with the groovy and moody EP, NO GURU, out on Vault Records—which will feature a single mastered by Emily Lazar. Her first time working with a label, the project represents a milestone in her musical career that speaks to her decision to step beyond the boundaries she fiercely maintained to protect her vision.
In preparation for the release (which she and Dave mixed on a vintage NEVE console that once belonged to George Harrison and recorded to tape on a Studer A800 that has produced countless platinum records, including Pearl Jam’s Ten), she has created a strong visual arsenal for the press—including a collaborative shoot with Rolling Stone photographer Marina Chavez.
