Nadine Shah is set to bring soulful bliss from her latest album, ‘Holiday Destination’, to Gateshead’s Sage on Tuesday 10th October. Conflicting, industrial sounds linger behind delicate vocals which will be a perfect complement for the music hall renowned for hosting the greatest artists in Shah’s field.
The past few years have been momentous for the North East based singer-songwriter, having performed at the prestigious Glastonbury Festival in 2015, supported Bryan Ferry in 2016 and the release of sophomore record, ‘Fast Food’, engineered her rise to being one of the most loved artists to feature on the likes of BBC 6 Music.
She is no stranger to Gateshead’s Sage either; after a stellar performance at the Radio 6 Music Live festival alongside the likes of Mogwai, Interpol and Kate Tempest, Shah was projected into the spotlight of acts that deserve full attention and this platform has allowed her to speak out on issues she is passionate about including mental health (as documented in her debut record, ‘Love Your Dum and Mad’,) and more recently the rise of nationalism and political uncertainty.
Speaking of an experience around the time of writing ‘Holiday Destination’, Shah explains: “I’ve had people telling me ‘oh, go back to where you’ve come from’ – and I’m like what? South Shields?”
Tales similar to this are sure to be spoken of in between reflective anthems certain to fill the Sage with emotive ballads big enough to fill arenas. So be sure to celebrate a North Eastern gem showcasing the best of what she has to offer in one of the most iconic venues in Britain.
