“She has a soulful and dexterous voice and a sound that is thoroughly contemporary with programmed beats, vocal harmonies that could be the Staves, a melody that could be Solange and a folky Alt Pop sensibility that could be Arlo Parks. Mostly though, it is classy, dynamic and impressive. A real talent.” Neil March, Fresh On The Net


Described as “classy, dynamic and impressive”, Nadedja’s music has always had the power to mesmerise and captivate audiences – an uncanny, intrinsic talent first visible as a 12-year-old songwriter. UK-based but Brazilian-born, Nadedja’s alt-pop sound is the perfect blend of intoxicating and magnetic soundscapes coupled with her ethereal signature vocal delivery. 

Inspired by the music and songwriting of Maggie Rogers, Rosalía and MUNA, Nadedja’s upcoming music captures a devotion to raw emotions and gut feelings, whilst exploring ways to free those passions through sensational pop textures, catchy hooks and compelling melodies.

Since the release of her independent debut EP ‘Transient’, Nadedja has been championed by national radio airplay on BBC 6 Music, and is one of BBC Introducing North-East’s ‘Tips for 2022’. Her music has been playlisted on daytime BBC Newcastle shows and featured on a BBC Sounds podcast, alongside numerous plays on Amazing Radio, BBC Tees and North-East Introducing shows. She’s also received extensive support from renowned organisations such as Help Musicians, Sage Gateshead and Generator. ‘Transient’ has enjoyed widespread coverage in publications around the world, including several features in Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net blog, and the Brazilian tastemaker blog ‘Nação da Música’

Nadedja has supported acts such as Mica Paris, Rose Cousins, Ajimal and Cattle & Cane, as well as festival appearances including Latitude, Dot to Dot, Tour de Moon and the BBC Introducing stage at Stockton Calling. In 2021, Nadedja was the very first artist to headline Sage Gateshead’s ‘From The Glasshouse’ concert series. She’s expanded her international presence by performing on several occasions on Live Brazilian TV, including a morning news show on Globo. In 2022, her brand-new music video for ‘Holographic Sickening Love’ was selected as one of June’s best independent videos of Brazil, by the esteemed Hits Perdidos tastemaker platform.
