Off the back of her last two successful tours (Theatre & Opera House, 2021 and Reid & Ruins 2020) and on the eve of her fourth album release in 2023, Nadia Reid is going out on the road this July with her band and contemporary classical ensemble NZTrio.
Nadia will also be performing live with her band (Sam Taylor, Richie Pickard, Joe McCallum) and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra for a one off show at the Auckland Town Hall as part of the Elemental Nights music series.

With newly minted arrangements commissioned from New Zealand composer Alex Taylor, Nadia reflects ‘It was a dream I dreamt up while in the throes of having a newborn and being in lockdown once again. I have been wanting to perform with the NZTrio for as long as I can remember. And it seems like the perfect pairing as I prepare to record my 4th album in August. I think the marriage of my band and I, and NZTrio is going to make for some real magic and I can’t wait.’
A richness of voice; a depth of emotion; wisdom beyond her years, Nadia Reid has claimed her place as one of New Zealand’s most evocative and profound songwriters. With youth spent in the company of folk clubs and the indie scene of Dunedin and Christchurch, Reid connected with the pre-and-post-quake Christchurch music milieu and quickly garnered a reputation among her peers for her penetrating songs belying her young age.
Nadia Reid has attained global success off the back of her first three albums: Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs (2015); Preservation (2017); and Out Of My Province (2020). In the years prior to March 2020, Nadia performed over 90 shows a year, through Australasia, Europe, and the United States with high profile appearances at coveted arts and music festivals like Green Man, End Of The Road, a media appearance on the BBC’s ‘Later...with Jools Holland’ and BBC 6 music.
With a #2 in Mojo for Album of the Year (for Preservation in 2017), and in New Zealand, as a finalist for both the Silver Scrolls Awards (2017,2019) and the Taite Prize (2016 & 2018, 2020) Nadia Reid’s star continues to rise.
Described as a “national treasure” and “New Zealand’s most indispensable ensemble” (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent and warm kiwi stage presence, and celebrates their 20th anniversary in 2022. Any preconceptions of classical music being stuffy or intimidating are smashed by edgy repertoire, venue ambiance, and post-concert manaakitanga.
