Nadine Shah is a songwriter and musician from the north east of England and born of Pakistani/Norwegian heritage.
Her first album 'Love Your Dum and Mad' was released in 2013 and received much critical acclaim not only for its musical components but also its political message of raising awareness to those suffering with mental health illnesses.
After extensive touring Shah's second offering 'Fast Food' was released in 2015 which saw the artist looking inward and exploring the complexities in the intimacy of complicated relationships.
Nadine’s unique voice has been in high demand and has seen her collaborate with such artists as Massive Attack, Vivienne Westwood, The Camerata Orchestra, Ghostpoet, Charles Hazlewood, The Invisible and John Cale.
Shah is no stranger to speaking out for causes she believes strongly in, whether it be promoting mental health awareness, racism or women's rights.
Her latest album the critically acclaimed 'Holiday Destination', was released in August 2017, and saw Nadine at her most political yet - confronting right wing nationalism, a Conservative government and the continued plight of refugees.
This album was 2018 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize nominated, Q Award 2018 nominated and AIM award winner of the year.
She has enjoyed huge critical acclaim this year with main features ranging from The Guardian to The Independent and Vogue.
A fourth album is anticipated late 2019 / early 2020.
