Nadia Sunde is being hailed as a ‘breath of fresh air’ in the emerging Australian kindie indie scene. Her Brisbane-based ensemble Nadia & The Best Band In The World, play real music for kids and grown-ups who want to enjoy something a little more rootsy and organic.
Singer/songwriter, early childhood music educator, ABC radio presenter and mother of two, Nadia recently released Homespun, produced and recorded by virtuoso guitarist Michael Fix. Homespun appeals to people of all ages, featuring a collection of songs that are ‘fun, blue-grassy, folk-inspired, toe-tapping and joyful!’ (Mumatopia)
The first track, The Goat and The Goose, was awarded 3rd place in the children’s category of the 2009 International Songwriting Competition, alongside Australian luminaries like Sarah Blasko and Troy Cassar-Daley.
“It’s my intention to craft songs that bring a heartfelt sense of connection to people of all ages. Whether it’s dancing in the kitchen to a rockabilly song about Red Rattler trains or making a rainy day nest of blankets, I love the thought that families and friends are listening and enjoying this album together.”
Nadia’s songwriting is intelligent and soulful, her voice is deliciously warm and resonant, the melodies are infectious and her band ... well ... they are ... The Best Band In The World!
