Nadia Reid new Preservation video and tour & Julie Byrne hits the road too

Two of 2017’s most loved solo artists are hitting the road this month. Julie Byrne and Nadia Reid will also share the same stage on a couple of nights. Nadia has just just shared a new video shot in her hometown of Dunedin on the South Island of NZ.

Julie will return to the UK in November to headline Union Chapel.


Nadia Reid new video for ‘Preservation’

European Tour Starts Next Week

“I am enormously proud to share the music video for Preservation with you. I worked closely with Julian Vares, who produced, shot, edited and patiently translated my ideas onto the screen (while having a brand new baby!)


We shot this film over two days on the streets I grew up on in Port Chalmers, Dunedin, New Zealand. The dancer, Bebe, I met in a record shop in Dunedin and instantly wanted her to be in the film. Her grace, and self-assured-ness was astounding and for me, it fit perfectly. Bebe, and Lisa Wilkinson, who choreographed the dance completely nailed it.


Preservation is the title & first song on my second record. There’s an intensity to it, but I actually find it quite beautiful in so many ways. It was cleansing to write. It is about loss, reflection and the future. For some reason, during the release of the album, I struggled to fully understand it’s meaning, there’s this sort of un-conscious state I often need to enter with songwriting, where meanings tend to become clearer and more obvious to me, months, or, years later…


So here we are, I am so grateful to NZ On Air Music & Dunedin City Council for funding this film & to everyone who currently works with and alongside me. Enjoy.” NR x

JULIE BYRNE summer festivals and UK shows

New live videos

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.”

Praise for Nadia Reid’s Preservation:

“One of the year’s landmark releases” – **** MOJO

“perfectly crafted statements from a blossoming talent” **** The Guardian

“For a new artist, her confident grace is all the more remarkable” Pitchfork

“simply breathtaking” ***** – Record Collector

“pretty much off the scale” – The Line Of Best Fit

“continues Reid’s graceful trajectory…” – 8/10 Uncut

“‘Preservation’ proves that whatever she discovered on her journey, it was very much a worthwhile undertaking.” – Loud & Quiet

Praise for Julie Byrne’s Not Even Happiness:

“Here is something special” ***** The Times

“Byrne paints sublime, awestruck moments when simple things become overwhelming.” Pitchfork, Best New Music

“there’s so much to love about Not Even Happiness: the lightness of the finger-picked acoustic guitar patterns, the flute and string interludes, the plaintive timbre in Byrne’s voice recalling fellow outsider folk figures Anne Briggs and Karen Dalton.” **** MOJO

“the voice is a balm” **** The Observer

“otherworldy and other-timely… for all its dreaminess, it never seems fey or contrived… stunning.” The Guardian

“a beautiful, otherworldly take on classic folk and Americana…. one of the albums of the year” NME
