Nina Rachel Shapiro Gordon (born November 14, 1967) is an American rock singer-songwriter and co-founder of the band Veruca Salt, for which she wrote the songs "Seether" and "Volcano Girls". After leaving Veruca Salt in 1998, she pursued a solo career. In March 2013, the original lineup of Veruca Salt reunited and they plan to enter the studio and possibly get on tour.
Veruca Salt was formed alongside the friendship of Gordon and Louise Post. Introduced by Gordon's good friend, actress Lili Taylor, Gordon and Post quickly bonded and formed what is now known as Veruca Salt. Originally, the band was an Indigo Girls-inspired acoustic act, but the women soon realized that this wasn't their sound. They quickly enlisted bass player Steve Lack and Gordon's brother, Jim Shapiro, a guitarist who joined as the band's drummer as a favor to his sister.
