music will get underway around 8pm with an opening set from those bare knuckled balladairs The Broken Heartbreakers
and then Nadia Reid will take the night on through, performing songs old and new with a full band in celebration of her eagerly anticipated new album ‘Preservation’
“Reid is a remarkably talented, assured, clever and confident singer-songwriter….. a devastating youthful wisdom that gives her songs a feeling of lasting profundity.” – The Guardian (UK)
“For a new artist, her confident grace is all the more remarkable” – Pitchfork
“a young New Zealand singer-songwriter you’ll feel you’ve known forever” – MOJO
Self-discovery doesn’t come easy. It’s usually a rite of passage to get burned before the wounds can heal and often takes a new perspective to truly understand yourself. 18 months and 10,000kms travelled since many needles first dropped on her debut LP Listen To Formation Look For The Signs, it’s safe to say with her second album Preservation, Nadia Reid now 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.”
An ode to self-reflection and self-betterment, Preservation is the sound of Nadia showing her true colours, taking back a bit of power, and learning more about herself. Deeply intellectual but felt by all, it punches harder than before. Nadia’s beautifully warm vocals coolly wrap around feelings of turbulence, and exude a gently improved confidence. “This record is about being OK with who I am in the world, and who I want to be. Learning to live with the fact I’m a person who operates differently to others,” admits Nadia. “I’m richer for the fact I am a musician. Without this way of being, I couldn’t write songs.”
