I’m a classically-trained vocalist and pianist. I studied piano since I was 7, at the age of 8 won a talent show award for singing and playing the piano, and in my teenage years sang in church choirs and went onto state piano competitions and won awards.
After graduating from University of Iowa and studying writing at Northwestern University in Chicago, I began my vocal training, studying in the Windy City under a jazz vocalist and later in NY, studied voice and public performance at celebrity-studded Cari Cole Voice Studios, as well as the late Teri Merliss, along with jazz vocalist Michelle Carr and French mezzo-soprano opera singer Maria Todaro.
I’ve had the pleasure of performing solo in front of hundreds of people on various continents (South America, Europe, Asia), was invited to have a private NYC showcase, as well as taught/teach voice and public performance to children of all ages.
My current instrument of choice is the ukulele due to its portability and unexplored possibilities of expression. The below recorded video and sound clips are untouched/unedited.
Thank you for stopping by!
Comforting! — N. Burson

You’ve got a great voice…your voice is your own voice…it’s like that of the singer Eartha Kitt and other famous singers… — L. Tash
This Helenbobelen will be performing live at East Austin’s beautiful Wilder Wood (1300 E.7th) Saturday the 29th for their monthly Saturday Women’s Rooftop Dinner. Children are welcome and I’ll be singing some all-ages-friendly jazz in English and French. Wilder Wood has some of the best live performing vocalists/musicians in Austin and probably the nation since Austin is the Live Music Capital. Wilder Wood specializes in from-scratch-culinary delights and all is certified gluten-free to boot.
On the scenic rooftop you can kick off your heels, network, and/or spend quality time with your children, or yourself as the latter plays and creates with provided materials. En plus, a one-of-a-kind, Earth-friendly pair of Helenbobelen.com Sterling Silver earrings and components will be raffled off!
Saturday’s women’s event gets ambling at 7pm and you probably won’t want to leave once it’s time to leave so get there early and settle into female-fiesta-mode with their tex-mex samplings…Who: Women and children
What: Wilder Wood’s Monthly Saturday Women’s Rooftop Dinner (music by this Helenbobelen)…fresh and gluten-free
Where: 1300 East 7th, Austin, TX…just several blocks east of I35
When: Saturday, September 29th, 7pm
Why: Wilder Wood was started by a woman and is supported by women (and women-loving men) and as a modern woman, you deserve a nourishing experience. www.wilderwoodrestaurantandbar.com
I’m excited to share the love of music!
