"Reid’s demeanour betrayed no hint of anxiety and her delicate blend of folk and pop proved a winning combination." – Jack van Beynen, The Press.

"Reid [was a] mesmeric vocalist – embracing numbers from Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht along with desolate struggle-street country and biting contemporary songs. [With] evocative covers of John Prine’s Angel from Montgomery, Mazzy Star’s Wasted and Jolie Holland’s Old Fashioned Morphine…" - Francesca Horsley, The Listener.

20 year old Christchurch-based singer/songwriter Nadia Reid has been forging a low-flying pathway in music and live performances with her unique brand of understated charm since she picked up a guitar 6 years ago.

Her debut EP 'Letters I Wrote and Never Sent' is due for imminent liberation, produced by Ben Edwards (The Sitting Room) and recorded at Quicksand Studios in Christchurch through Gold Sounds. The EP features collaborations with musicians Tim Moore (Von Klap), Mike Fordham (Von Klap), and Simon Gregory (Devlish Mary & The Holy Rollers), the result of which provides lavish sound texture to Nadia’s songs.

Nadia has appeared with a variety of Christchurch-, Dunedin- and Auckland-based artists of national and international renown including: The Bats, Tiny Vipers (US), The Eastern, Tono, Jaime Regan (UK), Matt Langley, and Von Klap. Opening for such diverse luminaries, her solo performances maintain integrity as an emerging musical voice.

Nadia will celebrate the release of her EP with a four-centre tour starting in Christchurch at The Archive on the 27th October. This will be followed with shows in Dunedin, Wellington, and Auckland. Christchurch musicians, Happiness Stan and Charlotte Ivey will join Nadia, along with a stellar band consisting of Ben Eldridge (Heavy Jones Trio, Reduction Agents, Dictaphone Blues), Joe McCallum (Julia Deans), and Rich Densem (Mustard) on the Southern shows.

‘Letters I Wrote And Never Sent’ is out 27th October 2011 through Gold Sounds.
