Born and raised in Miami, FL, Nini Camps, a first-generation Cuban American, has long called NYC home. As a solo artist, she quickly made her mark on the NYC music scene, performing in iconic venues like The Bitter End, The Mercury Lounge, and The Living Room. Her independent releases and national tours with artists such as Los Lonely Boys, as well as performances at Madison Square Garden with Joan Osborne and the 2006 World Cup games in Germany, highlight her dynamic career.

A celebrated songwriter, Nini won Billboard’s Songwriter Award and was named Spin’s Top 5 Singer/Songwriter for her album "So Long." Signing with Cherry Lane Music Publishing in 2005 allowed her to transition from touring to songwriting for other artists, TV, and film. With over 50 placements, including Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, All American, Brothers and Sisters, Castle, Pretty Little Liars, and more, Nini continues to create music for various media. She is currently signed to Concord Music Publishing.

In 2009, she joined Antigone Rising as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, contributing to albums like "23 Red" and the "Whiskey and Wine" series. Nini also ventured into theater, starring in "F@ck 7th Grade" by Jill Sobule, a New York Times critics pick and Drama Desk Award nominee, and participating in the ensemble workshop of Emily Saliers and Beth Malone's new musical "Starstruck."

As a co-founder of a non-profit with Antigone Rising, Nini empowers girls and LGBT youth to pursue non-traditional career paths and build self-esteem through outreach workshops and live performances. The organization also created The Girls Rising Music Festival, showcasing female artists like Shawn Colvin, Lisa Loeb, Judith Hill, Paula Cole, and Carnie Wilson.

Nini is currently signed to Concord Music Publishing.

Antigone Rising is an Americana trio comprised of Nini Camps, Cathy Henderson and Kristen Ellis-Henderson who have established a reputation for being true to themselves. While the New York trio’s high-energy performances have earned the long term devotion of fans, it is the band's social activism that continues to push the group forward. The band's nonprofit, Girls Rising, has taken the group around the world on a musical mission to empower and inspire girls to be all they can be and their  annual music festival hosting both established and up and coming female artists is one of the only music festivals in the world of its kind. 

A Brief History 

Early on, Antigone Rising established a reputation as a grassroots touring band, with a tour calendar packed year round. By 2003, their independent success landed them a record contract with Warner Music Group’s Lava Records. Their major label debut, From the Ground Up, became one of the first releases marketed through Starbucks chains nationwide, selling over a half million copies. After touring with The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, The Allman Brothers and more, a corporate shake up led them band back to the indie world, loyal fanbase intact. That loyal fanbase has continued to support the band's efforts for the past twelve years. 

In 2021, the band will release a digital download package of all their latest work. Several songs were recorded prior to the Covid shut down, silently waiting on the shelf for a proper debut. The band added a few additional songs to the collection during the downtime of the pandemic, each recording from their own home studios to get it done.
