Nadia Reid Announces 'High & Lonely' NZ Tour

Nadia Reid Announces 'High & Lonely' NZ Tour
Last tour this year before going into the studio

Live Review:

The rising New Zealand folk artist’s spare sound has an arresting impact, and deserves wider exposure”

- Kitty Empire, UK Guardian Aug 27, 2017

"Her songs are either oblique, or tight, and parsimonious. It keeps you listening" - The (UK) Guardian on Nadia's show at Bush Hall, London, Aug 24th, 2017

Nadia Reid, will be hitting the road this June/July for a 13 date tour of New Zealand. The High & Lonely Tour will be her last for 2018 before she heads to the U.S. to begin work on record number three. Reid says she wants to “road test some of the new songs” that will appear on the new record. 'High & Lonely' comes from the title of a song she premiered on Radio NZ National over Easter this year. You can watch the live session here.

The last 12 months have proved to be an amazing year for Nadia with multiple tours of Europe and the U.S., supporting Ryan Adams in his sold out Auckland show, named as a finalist for the 2017 APRA Silver Scroll Award and the 2018 Taite Music Prize, and a bevy of glowing reviews from the world’s biggest music media for both her album and her live shows.

Don’t miss one of NZ’s finest songwriters live and catch a glimpse of some new songs before she goes into studio lock down.

Scoop Review Of Books: Who Killed Jane?

This is an important book. Why? Because any publication that soberly and sensibly attempts to cast light on an unsolved murder is important, for the very real reasons that not only do the bereaved require and deserve a sense of closure, but that the murderer or murderers may be closer to being confirmed, arrested, tried.
