  • Nadia Reid :: Call The Days - Live

Whether you’ve found yourself in a big city, or a rural corner of the globe, music has the power to transport you. New Zealand singer-songwriter Nadia Reid makes moving, moody pop that does exactly that.

Hitting the road on her Australian tour, Reid dropped by the FBi studio for a lunchtime chat with Beth Dalgleish. Discussing the impact shifting cities has had on her sound and the art of making music as an act of healing, Reid reflects on her second album Preservation.

It’s amazing, this will last – music lasts forever.

When hearing Reid play, her passion and sincere love for music becomes apparent.

“I just kind of picked up the guitar at fifteen and then, then didn’t stop playing really, It’s kind of like an obsession.”

“I was mostly self-taught but I had sort of little pockets of teaching.”

Taught guitar by the legendary Robert Scott, Reid absorbed his wisdom while focusing on expressing her own sound.

“Yeah, Bob Scott was my teacher for a while. On and off, yeah. He is from The Clean and The Bats. I had no idea who he was at the time.”

Having nurtured her talents for over a decade, Nadia Reid’s evolving sound is equal parts empowering and ethereal. Her voice takes centre stage: pensive and determined, it’s well worth a listen.

Hear the full chat, as well as a live rendition of ‘Call The Days’ above.

The charming (and jet-lagged) James Blake stopped by to chat about his new album Overgrown. You can listen to him vanquish collaboration myths (sorry Bjork and Drake fans!) and reminisce about his CD-ripping library trips.
