Hot on the heels of her UK Americana Award nomination Lady Nade is soaring into summer 2021 with her third album release ‘Willing’.

Lady Nade started writing poems and songs as a form of healing from grief, performing in venues across her native city of Bristol, her work developed into a calling to connect with her fans on a deeper level and help lead them through life’s complicated tapestry with the healing power of music. She pours creativity into every song, often lavishing them with a recipe to match. She is also a champion for the positive connection between music, well-being and the importance of equality and diversity within the arts.

Lady Nade’s nominated Song ‘Ain’t One Thing’ features on her upcoming album, it promotes positive body image, anti-bullying and anti-shaming through musical expression. The release was a huge success reaching the hearts of so many, gaining airplay on BBC Radio 2, Northern Ireland & BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Wiltshire and Bristol as well as several online publications including; Folk Radio, Americana UK, Black Ballad UK and Holler.
