Armed with a uniquely rich and soulful voice which, paired with her effortlessly eloquent and arresting lyrics, has earned Nadine Shah an early reputation as a rising, uncompromising talent. The mesmerising singer has constantly challenged her listeners, exploring and dissecting taboo subjects in a graceful and sincere manner.

“Classy is what these passion-drenched yet poised songs are” – The Guardian
“If Love Your Dum and Mad floated the idea that Nadine Shah was capable of greatness, then Fast Food confirms this as fact” – Drowned In Sound
“Place your bets now: the odds on Shah troubling the mainstream are shortening all the time” – The Skinny
