Nadia Reid & Julie Byrne (USA)

  • Lyttelton Records 650 Ferry Road Christchurch, Canterbury, 8023 New Zealand (map)

*Two shows 2nd & 3rd Feb

New Zealander NADIA REID's music traces the sharp mountain peaks, azure coastline, and mirrored images of the land and sky that pinpoint her home country’s vast open landscapes. 18 months and 10,000kms travelled since many needles first dropped on her debut LP 'Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs', Nadia's vision has widened on her latest album Preservation (released to much acclaim this March on new label Basin Rock - the same European home as Julie Byrne), whilst throwing a fresh perspective on the beauty of her homeland. An ode to self-reflection and self-betterment, Preservation is the sound of Nadia showing her true colours, taking back the power and learning more about herself in the process.

American wanderer JULIE BYRNE's second album 'Not Even Happiness' vividly archives what would have otherwise been lost to the road - bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, as well as the irresolvable mysteries of love.
In the live arena she enchants, leaving rooms and festival crowds mesmerised by her voice and warm presence, who find a real connection with Byrne's intimate songs. This feeling is often shared: “When the show has that magical spirit every person has contributed, even unknowingly, in creating a space of responsiveness to each other through vulnerability, through our unified experience and honesty about our sorrow and our emergence.”
