Led by Romanian born vocalist Ioana Vintu and Long Island native Andrew Gould, Nuf Said was formed in 2011 as a group of seasoned freelance musicians began collaborating. The players hit the stage and the studio with serious intent - mixing up a recipe of melodic vocals, deep grooves,and improvisation.
