Nellee Hopper

Nellee was very paternal, very protective, helping with self-confidence issues. Nellee really encouraged me to be as Icelandic as I am. On Debut, we ended up having an indian orchestra, bits of saxophone and this Icelandic person singing. And it made sense with the environment I was in. It wasn’t exotic for exotic’s sake, it was the truth.
