Nadine has just released her third EP Rise: A collaboration with producer & composer Dave Holden of Flat 6 Music. The journey of the four songs feels transformational, resembling an experience of going through fire, the feeling of losing everything but coming out on the other side golden. Just like the breath-taking lead Single Rise is about gaining heights, the new sound takes Nadine to a whole other level of confident expression of her art.
Nadine’s name means hope and this is the theme that weaves through everything she creates. “We have struggled a lot with mental illness in my family and when faced with hardship I naturally started exploring the meaning of hope. I’m not interested in the sort of hope we sprinkle into well-meaning sentences like “crossisng my fingers!” I’d much rather explore the more stubborn hope that’s tested when everything else breaks apart.” Nadine’s honest quest for timeless truth expresses beautifully as both raw and empathetic, vulnerable and powerful.
