This showcase at San Fran is filled with bittersweet opportunities for Nadia Reid fans. Not only will it be their last opportunity to hear Reid before she heads off to the States to record her third studio album, they'll also be able to hear some of her latest material before she lays it onto tape.
Over the last 12 months, Reid has established herself as one of New Zealand's finest exports. Her second album Preservation has seen her complete multiple tours of Europe and the US, perform on Later with Jools Holland, secure the number two spot on Mojo's Album of the Year list, and become a finalist for the 2018 APRA Silver Scroll and 2018 Taite Music Prize. And with her graceful voice, wise lyricism and folk-pop sensibilities, it's easy to see why. Believe the hype.
