From the North- east of the UK, and from Pakistani / Norwegian heritage, Nadine Shah's 3rd album Holiday Destination has earned her a Hyundai Mercury Music Prize shortlist, a Q Award 2018 nomination for best album and an Aim award for 'Best album 2018' (as well as appearing on the Radio 4 Women's Power list Top 40). The record has been more than generously supported at radio with all 4 singles from this album going A list at 6 Music and with her appearing regularly across BBC radio in features, on panels and as a dj as well as appearing recently on BBC1 TV Sunday Morning Live. Her live following has grown exponentially over this last 18 months while she's played over 50 gigs all around Europe. Highlights have been supporting Nick Cave in Germany, and countless of her own slots at festivals this summer including Blue Dot Festival and Latitude. Her recent UK press includes cover features with The Observer, The Independent, Q Magazine and Vogue. Her appearance at SXSW 2019 will be her debut in the USA.
