Vi ser veldig frem til å ha Nadia Reid hos oss fredag 8.september. Sist hun spilte i Oslo var ifjor på Buckley´s, en konsert det går gjetord om. Dette er en artist man ikke vil gå glipp av.
Nadia Reid er født i Auckland, men vokste opp i Port Chalmers en liten havneforstad til byen Dunedin på sørvestsiden av Sørøya. Etter high school flyttet hun lenger nord til Christchurch hvor hun spilte på folk-klubber og lot seg inspirere av stedets aktive americana/folk/indie-miljø. Nadia hadde begynt å klimpre på gitaren som femtenåring, men det var først da hun nærmet seg 20 at låtskrivingen virkelig ble tatt på alvor.

Debutalbumet, Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs, har høstet mange lovord og overveldende fine anmeldelser fra hjemlige lokalpresse til New York Times og britiske magaziner som MOJO og Uncut. Mange sammenligner henne med artister som Laura Marling og Gillian Welch. Produsent og lydtekniker Ben Edwards hos Lyttelton Records har betydd mye for 24-åringens kunstneriske utvikling, og platen er blitt til i hans hjemmestudio, The Sitting Room.

Nadia Reid henter inspirasjon overalt fra dagliglivets hendelser, emosjonelle gleder og traumer, til landskapene og havet som omgir henne. Låtene er velkomponerte, og debutanten Nadia Reid viser seg frem som en imponerende moden, selvsikker og reflektert artist.

"Reid is a remarkably talent, assured, clever and confident singer-songwriter..... adevastating youthful wisdom that gives her songs a feeling of lasting profundity." TheGuardian

“For a new artists, her confident grace is all the more remarkable” Pitchfork

Self-discovery doesn’t come easy. It’s usually a rite of passage to get burned before thewounds can heal and often takes a new perspective to truly understand yourself. 18 monthsand 10,000kms travelled since many needles first dropped on her debut LP Listen ToFormation Look For The Signs, it’s safe to say with new album Preservation, Nadia Reidnow knows herself extremely well.

“Preservation’ is about the point I started to love myself again. It is about strength,observation and sobriety,” Nadia says. “It’s about when I could see the future again. When the world was good again. When music was realised as my longest standing comfort.

Through cavernous lows, blissful highs and globe-trotting adventures, music has been byNadia’s side the entire way. Whether in New Zealand’s familiar rugged beaches andmountains, brutally windy Wellington, her hometown harbour Port Chalmers or theuntrodden territory of faceless hotel rooms or the jungle in Kuala Lumpur, every episode ofloss, heartbreak, and disappointment glimmers throughout. “Travelling inspires me. I’mlearning that things need to happen for the writing to come. Like making time to be alonewith my guitar. I’ve grown to crave that. I almost like to starve myself of it to crave it.”

For some, being so far removed from all you know would be unsettling, but Nadia is keen toembrace the challenge of moving forwards in the face of uncertainty. “This place of newnessmust be where all the good stuff happens,” Nadia reveals. “An artist must be uncomfortable,must tour the world, and mustn’t stay in her home-town for too long. I feel very happy andchanged by my time abroad. I have fallen back in love with music, or perhaps learnt to trusther a little more. Often in times of exhaustion, confusion, and home-sickness, music has beenthe constant.”

—————————————————————————————————————————————

An ode to self-reflection and self-betterment, Preservation is the sound of Nadia showing hertrue colours, taking back a bit of power, and learning more about herself. Deeply intellectualbut felt by all, it punches harder than before. Nadia’s beautifully warm vocals coolly wraparound feelings of turbulence, and exude a gently improved confidence. “This record is aboutbeing OK with who I am in the world, and who I want to be. Learning to live with the factI’m a person who operates differently to others,” admits Nadia. “I’m richer for the fact I am amusician. Without this way of being, I couldn’t write songs.”

Returning to the production skills of Ben Edwards in his Sitting Room studios and long termguitarist Sam Taylor, this time around everything is rubbed in more grit and channels Nadia’sdeftly profound take on life and whilst we already knew it, her own realisation that it is musicwhich drives her. “I remember recording the tracks, it was about 11 at night, and I felt almosttranscendental, as if I was out of my body, singing these words to myself. That’s what thesesongs are; a confession to my future and past self.”

Nadia has seen the world she once knew become a whole lot larger. Simply singing her truthhas taken her to becoming acquainted with her Scottish and Irish heritage during her first fullEuropean tour, downtime with long-time sister-from-another-mister Aldous Harding andeven making the odd award shortlist along the way (NZ’s 2016 Taite Music Prize).

Rather than growth in its most typical sense of any artist finding their way in the world,Preservation marks a natural passing of time – what you pick up along the way is a bonus.“Making music feels like a very natural expression for me – to record songs and mark time alittle. Just like a painter needs to paint pictures.” Sometimes those home comforts can befound a little closer than you might think.
