Nadia Reid & Julie Byrne
NADIA REID + JULIE BYRNE
Whelan’s, August 30th
Very special double-headliner featuring two of the music world’s foremost new song-writing talents.
New Zealand songwriter Nadia Reid released her second album Preservation to worldwide acclaim this February.
“One of the year’s landmark releases.” MOJO
“Reid is a remarkably talent, assured, clever and confident singer-songwriter….. a devastating youthful wisdom that gives her songs a feeling of lasting profundity.” - The Guardian
"In her deep, capable voice, [the] surface of her gorgeous song remains steady, as a raga-like drone anchors rolling acoustic guitar and languid cello….For a new artist, her confident grace is all the more remarkable." – Pitchfork
American songwriter Julie Byrne’s new album Not Even Happiness was released 13th January 2017 on Basin Rock
“Otherworldy and other-timely... for all its dreaminess, it never seems fey or contrived... stunning.” - The Guardian
“Byrne’s voice is so delicate it sounds like she’s harmonizing with a breeze, her songs so transfixing — the sun is setting, and the magic-hour light is warm and enveloping — that those of us who’ve gathered to watch her are sitting slack-jawed.” Spin
"Her version of folk, a whisper bordering on an ambient hum, will be familiar to fans of early Cat Power or Grouper, as will her ability to mine the uncanny from the everyday stuff lying around... Byrne's album sits at the nexus where one melts gorgeously into the other." - Pitchfork
