One of Bristol’s 2022 Most Influential Women Right Now Bristol.Live
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Lady Nade is soaring into 2022 with her Official Americana and Folk Charting third album ‘Willing’ which features two AMAUK UK Song Of The Year nominations ‘Willing’ (2022 nomination and Song of the year Winner ) and ‘Ain’t One Thing’ (2021 nomination) Both songs that carry the message of the positive connection between music, well-being and the importance of equality and diversity within the arts.
Often being told that black females only sing soul R&B or jazz has always quietly been playing on Lady Nade’s mind, however during her creative process the one thing that is always at the centre is staying true to her art regardless of the genre.
This Bristolian folk/ Americana songwriter fills your heart with words and melodies that nourish the mind, body and soul. She started writing poems and songs as a form of healing from grief, learning that loss and grief isn’t something one can recover from alone and with her music and recipes she creates a communal experience that everyone can enter into on their own terms, performing in venues across her native city of Bristol, her work developed into a calling to connect with her fans on a deeper level and help lead them through life’s complicated tapestry with the healing power of music. She pours creativity into every song, often lavishing them with a recipe to match.
Lady Nade’s 2021 album ‘Willing’ continues to be a huge success reaching the hearts of so many, gaining airplay on BBC Radio 2 Mark Radcliffe Folk Show, BBC Radio 6 Cerys Matthews, Ralph McLean, Northern Ireland & BBC Radio Ulster , BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Wiltshire and Bristol as well as several online publications including; Folk Radio, Americana UK, Black Ballad UK, Maverick, RNR The Guardian and Holler.
Her performances are like a reunion. Share a room with her, and she’ll give you her story. All of it. The joys and sorrows. You will love her for it, and she will love you back.
