An artist of complexity and sublime contradiction, Nadia Kazmi is a rarity amongst the ever-growing crop of songwriters/recording artists – so compelling that it ensnares listeners from across a wide spectrum of tastes.
With a dark sweetness to her unique brand of blues-infused alternative rock, Nadia’s songs hit you with their lyrical literacy and their impressively melodic, textured and dynamic composition.
A native of Calgary, Alberta, Nadia splits her time between the western city at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and the mountainous skyscrapers of New York City. Since being in the Big Apple she has come into her own as an artist, building a repertoire of original material that seems to defy trends.
Nadia’s musical influences hearken back to the decade of her parents’ youth. She was especially fond of artists and bands who, like her, felt unshackled from conventions and norms.
The consistent theme of the artists who influenced her has been their commitment to lyrical depth and naked honesty, including the Canadian master wordsmith – Leonard Cohen.
