Episode 026–Nina Söderquist, Captain Of Rock with Bruce Hilliard
Swedish rock star Nina Söderquist has toured with Björn Skifs (Blue Swede, “Hooked on a Feeling” 1974) and Badrock, rocking arenas around the world. During her 25 years in the industry, Nina has lived and worked all over the world. She says she started as an entertainer at age 12 performing in a talent show but my nickel says she was born singing. Nina has worked with dance bands, soul, jazz, pop and cover bands, to finally landed in rock music.
Her big breakthrough came in autumn 2007 in London when she took a lead role as Lady of the Lake in Monty Python's musical Spamalot. Her music speaks for itself and the below links will take you there.
Nina is a “field artist” as a captain in the Swedish Armed Forces. She has entertained troops from several countries internationally performing in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Liberia and Mali.
On September 22nd, 2017, Nina and friend Björn Skifs released the duet Goodbye, written by Nina. We were hoping to get the exact definition of "ooga chucka" from Nina but that may remain a mystery until lead vocalist Björn makes an appearance on the Better Each Day Podcast Radio Show.
