Interdisciplinary artist NADIAH (Nadiah Adu-Gyamfi) has right now shared her new single ‘Draw The Line’.
Following her vocal help on Mura Masa’s single ‘Rise’, the lilting ‘Draw The Line’, produced by Kwes., is an epochal declaration of her survivor’s spirit. Burnt by the foremost label system, NADIAH reckons the stop-starts and rebrands in her profession, reaching a spot the place she will honour her autonomy and inventive instincts.
Of her journey and the inspiration behind the brand new single, NADIAH says: “Like many artists within the trade for a while, I felt slept on. I made the ultimate choice to depart my main label deal underneath the earlier moniker after feeling unheard and misunderstood with little to no confidence left. I used to be actually naive on the time, and I didn’t have the energy, to confront the individuals who doubted me as I didn’t perceive my very own energy.”
She continues: “For a few years after I fought a shedding battle with imposter syndrome and debilitating nervousness, as I felt powerless. ’Draw The Line’ was written in a time the place I felt sufficient was sufficient. I used to be uninterested in making myself smaller to suit the trade requirements.”
