NAILS HIDE METAL / Bio

Nails Hide Metal is a power trio playing original, rock music. NHM combines a distinctive effects based guitar sound with driving rhythms, melodies and compelling lyrics.

"Expect the unexpected; a tour of rock n' roll from The Guess Who to The Shins.”— Jimbo Ivy, The Hype

The band finished recording 'Outside City' while working with Larry Crane at Jackpot! Recording Studio in Portland Oregon. They were one of the acts chosen to play Canadian Music Week 2015 and a 2014 GASC Finalist.

Nails Hide Metal was formed in 2009 with the songwriting team of MeLinda Dalton and Russ Quinn. The chemistry was perfect to develop the songs that came out of the union. Starting out as the Ninas and then changing their name to NAILS HIDE METAL (a line from their song ‘Matter’), an atmosphere of musical experimentation began to take place and their sound emerged.

Over the next few years, they released three self-recorded EP's while playing clubs and venues throughout the Northeast.

After relocating to the Pacific Northwest, the couple began playing live again and recorded another group of songs during their first trip to Portland's Jackpot! Recording Studio.

Shortly after, bass player Jon Carpenter joined the duo. The three continue to play and tour together in the US, Canada and beyond.
