We are proud to present Nadine Khouri as part of Arab Women Artists Now 2018.

Nadine Khouri is a singer-songwriter currently based in London. A Beirut-born singer with a love for shoegaze, film soundtracks & spoken-word, Khouri’s music has been described as a “music born of perennial outsider-status.”

Recorded live with legendary producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Rokia Traore) in his hometown Bristol, her debut album ‘The Salted Air’ is a haunting and atmospheric collection of poetic meditations on loss and transformation.

Released in February 2017, the album cemented Khouri’s one-to-watch status. It and was hailed by MOJO as “A thing of dark possessed beauty” in their four-star album review, celebrated by Q (Feb 2017 Critics Choice) and selected as one of Rough Trade’s Albums of the Month.

Acclaimed music photographer Steve Gullick (Nirvana, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) shot Khouri’s press photos and cover art. He also directed the video for ‘You Got A Fire’.

In the past year, Khouri has performed in some of London most prestigious venues with her band, including The Union Chapel, Royal Festival Hall, Cecil Sharp House, Royal Academy of Arts, and has shared the stage with the likes of Howe Gelb, John Parish, Piers Faccini, Gemma Ray and many more. She has toured in the UK, Spain, Portugal, & Germany, with further dates to follow in early 2018 in Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France.

In December 2017, ‘The Salted Air’ was listed among Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year.

Nadine will be performing with violinist Basia Bartz.
