Nadia’s love of music and singing began at the age of two and was later nurtured by her parents by placing her into a traveling youth choir. Her mother was a poet who passed on her love of words, which later fueled Nadia’s talent as a lyricist. Nadia’s life took an unexpected turn at the age of 17 when she lost her mother to suicide.
She dismantled her high-school band and strayed from songwriting and singing for years, other than the occasional karaoke. After this tragic loss, she states that she went down a path of self-sabotage and destruction and used relationships and partying to ignore her pain. When she finally decided to begin again with artistry, which would ultimately save her life, she was a shell of a person and looking to anyone and anything for answers to deal with her heartbreak. “I made a lot of missteps in the beginnings of my career and had to learn a lot of things the hard way.”
Vaeh loves to pull inspiration for her music through many genres and sounds from all over the world with much of her musicality rooted in her family's time in Curaçao and her father's homeland of Lebanon.
For Vaeh, songwriting is not only personally healing but is also a platform to help others heal and make waves with social matters.
