Nadia Reid’s debut full-length album Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs is the culmination of ten years' writing.
The seeds of Reid's song writing were sewn while she was growing up in Port Chalmers. Bob Scott, from The Bats, was her guitar teacher for a while but the pivotal moment came a little later.
Reid and Hannah Harding, who plays under the name Aldous Harding, started to sing and write music together. One summer they lived together. That led to performing together, and Nadia’s course was set.
