Nadia High is an African-Canadian singer-songwriter, she creates and performs deeply soul-felt original songs.
"My music is a gift from the most high, I'm just the vessel to share the songs with the people"
Her music is a unique blend of urban-folk, blues, jazz, soft rock and neo-soul. The songs are catchy and her vocal style is very much her own. She uses an interesting blend of chords to strum up hook filled melodies; driven by powerful, acoustic-rhythm guitar licks. Some of her songs speak of self-identity, healing, self-love, empowerment, overcoming adversity.
"Some my inspirations are Joni Mitchell, Tracey Chapman, Radiohead, Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, Rahi High and any artist with integrity..."
