She will be performing a range of her and the bands favourite female artists who have had a huge impact on the way we hear music today. These powerful women were artists in their own right. They were women of courage, they were women of strength, they were women who revolutionized jazz, blues and soul. It was these qualities that have inspired generations of music enthusiasts from around the world.
Some of these artists include Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Doris Day, Peggy Lee, Julie London, Roberta Flack, Bessie Smith, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and more. Nardia and her band will be performing their own arrangements of songs by these artists and will be accompanied by some of Melbourne’s finest musicians and Queensland musicians.
Nardia has performed in front of tens of thousands of people within her hometown of Australia and overseas. She has had the pleasure of supporting some of the world’s most powerful icons of today including Pink, Beyonce, and Adele and have also supported some legendary Australian artists including Russell Morris and Tex Perkins.
Thanks to her father, a blues guitarist, the blues was born in her veins. The church was on Sundays where she sang gospel music in a praise and worship band. Soul came next where she was casted into the Ray Charles musical “Genius” in her early twenties and a mo-town band. Soon after she created a female harmony duo and discovered her love for Jazz.
She currently frequents venues in her home town of Melbourne including the Paris Cat Jazz Club, Transit Rooftop Bar, Dogs Bar and the Blues train and has performed at a range of festivals including Mullumbimby Music Festival, Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival, Blues on Broadbeach Festival, Darebin Music Festival and many more.
