Fresh from her recent UK Americana Award nomination, singer-songwriter, Lady Nade releases her third album.
She has always been the kind of writer who has drawn influence from the things she has experienced and has taken solace in the therapeutic creative process. Upon listening to ‘Willing’ it is clear that once again Lady Nade has tapped into those experiences and emotions. As well as exploring the topics of loneliness and solitude, Lady Nade continues to explore themes of love, friendship and family on a record that boasts a simple production. Peace and Calm tells the story of her Grandad, she takes on a slightly theatrical tone to her voice when she wishes to emphasise an aspect of the story as she paints a clear picture in the listeners mind. Rock Bottom has a much more upbeat feel to it albeit with an accusatory tone to the lyrics though it is a welcome change on the 11-tack record and a stand-out track.
Lady Nade’s soulful voice and use of expression is what makes this record special. Whilst her ability to tell a detailed yet relatable story is a gift.
