Brand new sealed release from New Zealand's Folk singer Nadia Reid. Made in the EU.
New Zealand's Folk singer Nadia Reid has done a lot in two years – put out two albums, spent a year being sober, fallen in and out of love, and gone on a journey of self-discovery.
Add to that, the fact that the Dunedin-based singer and songwriter was just 15 when she picked up a guitar, taught herself to play, and then learned to write songs and play them and you have one impressive millennial.
Speaking with a maturity and self-assuredness that belies her 25 years, Reid's second album, Preservation, released this month, reflects where she is right now.
"Preservation is about the point I started to love myself again. It is about strength, observation and sobriety," she reflects. "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."
Part of a new crop of folk musicians coming out of Australasia, Reid would be right at home in Nashville, strumming her acoustic guitar with her round-rimmed glasses and long, straight hair. When she toured the UK and Europe, her music was likened to the English folk singer, Laura Marling and, even more flatteringly, Canada's Joni Mitchell and America's Stevie Nicks.
