Songs by Nell Balaban

Dilettante is a collection of songs I’ve written and recorded over the last 10 years or so.


I'm excited to share them and will be releasing them

in this space one at a time over the next couple of months. Welcome to week 11!


We could call it a record, an album, or a playlist.


All the tunes were produced and recorded in Canada in various locations; wherever Tim Thorney (the great!) has had his studio, Villa Sound, that’s where I’d go, from Toronto to the lovely Blue Mountains of Ontario.








Here's SEVERAL LITTLE DANCES which is another collaboration with the luminous Hill Kourkoutis or as I sometimes like to refer to her, "Rad Girl". 

You can read more about Hill and how she came to be collaborating with us here.

this is my favorite. It was already off to a great start but she came on at the end and nailed the vibe.

That's all there is to say about that.

I'm trying something new this week:
