"What can I tell you? I'm left knocked over and broken by Nadia Reid's new album, Out Of My Province." - Grant Smithies
Mojo Magazine - Album Of The Month (April 2020)
5 star reviews - NZ Listener / Otago Daily Times / Elsewhere.co.nz
Between European tours, appearing on Later…with Jools Holland and singing with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, Out of My Province is the sound of a young artist growing in profile and dexterity before international audiences and whose world has changed before her eyes.
Out of My Province showcases Nadia’s sharpest songwriting to date, atmospheric arrangements replete with strings and Rhodes, and of course that immense voice, alternately soothing and riveting.
No one ever got anywhere by standing still. As an artist, you must move to grow. It’s a sentiment Reid knows well. Nadia packed up for Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, Virginia with long-term “musical rock” and guitarist Sam Taylor. They were joined by joined by the Spacebomb house band - Cameron Ralston (electric and upright bass), Brian Wolfe (drums), Daniel Clarke (organ, piano, and keys), and producer Trey Pollard, who would arrange strings, horns, piano and rhodes to give the album a depth in sound Nadia had always imagined.
Lead single “Best Thing” is urgent and seismic. The song’s video, completed back home in her hometown of Dunedin, is set atop a vast and gorgeous black and white ocean landscape, as Nadia conveys a newfound power that is a sign of the impressive strides she’s taken as a songwriter on Out of My Province.
The album is already receiving high praise: Uncut says, “These songs recall the greats while also plotting a map of the future”. MOJO has already named it their Album Of The Month for March, praising its “songs to keep returning to with no hope of ever exhausting their meaning”.
