Her prolific writing and touring have seen her present at some of the worlds most respected music platforms namely WOMAD (NZ), Green Man Festival (UK), End Of The Road Festival (UK) and a television appearance on BBC’s ‘Later…with Jools Holland’.

Nadia was awarded #2 in Mojo Magazine for Album of the Year (for Preservation) and in New Zealand, she was a finalist for both the APRA Silver Scroll Awards (2017) and the Taite Music Prize (2016 & 2018).
