NADINE KHOURI DUO
Nadine Khouri is a musician & songwriter currently based in London.
Influenced by dream-pop, film soundtracks and spoken-word, Khouri’s sound has been described as a “music born of perennial outsider-status.”
Noted by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Giant Sand) for her voice, Khouri was invited to sing on a track on his Screenplay LP and subsequently to record her forthcoming album with the producer in his hometown of Bristol.
Sparse & minimal in its arrangement, the resulting album is a haunting collection of poetic and atmospheric meditations on loss and transformation, reminiscent of the dreamy alt-folk of Mazzy Star & Sparklehorse.
In the past few months, Khouri has performed at Union Chapel, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Festival Hall in London and supported alt-folk maverick Howe Gelb, Mary Hampton, and John Parish, garnering positive reviews for her live performances in MOJO magazine and more. She is set to release her hotly-tipped debut album later this year.
Nadine will be performing at Woodburner accompanied by Basia Bartz on violin.
“A gravely, female voice sings modern, alternative torch-songs and the atmosphere is so mesmerizing, so fascinating you wish this late night moment would last forever.” – Cracked Reviews
“Khouri’s effortlessly powerful voice curls around the music, which at times can go from a skeletal finger-picked guitar swooping up to loop-based experimentalism. The themes are of traveling and the love-loss casualties along the road, and the songwriting here tells of a spirit at home on the road to the perfect song.” – Rough Trade
