November 2006 update - GREAT NEWS: Nadine's new LIVE CD is a finalist in the Independent Music Awards in the Live Album Category!!!
New York City singer-songwriter Nadine Goellner has been winning over audiences across the country with her unique acoustic-driven blend of scat, soul and jazz. Her debut album, Remember My Name, earned Nadine comparisons to such esteemed artists as Norah Jones for her jazz-infused sound, Edie Brickell for her thoughtful songwriting, and Chaka Khan and Christina Aguilera for her soulful voice and dynamic range. Her follow-up, Sing It to Me Anyway, was hailed by fans, radio listeners, and critics as “one of the strongest indie releases of 2004” (All Music Guide). Nadine just released a brand new LIVE CD in September 2006. Recorded at a sold-out concert at new NYC hotspot Mo Pitkin’s last spring, the album features Nadine with bandmates Anna Dagmar on piano, Bob Hart on bass, and Allison Miller on drums. The energy and spirit of Nadine’s live shows as caught on this new CD show why her audience is fast-growing and why her “folk-jazz-scat cross-pollinations have earned raves galore” (Time Out New York).
In addition to her sold-out shows in NYC, Nadine has been touring regionally, sharing the stage with many notable artists, including jazz great Diane Schuur; acclaimed performing songwriters Duncan Sheik, Vienna Teng, Patty Larkin, Keren Ann, John Gorka, Catie Curtis, Jeffrey Gaines, and Susan Werner; and GRAMMY winning artists Jesse Harris and Colin Hay, among others. She has been a featured performer at several showcases and festivals, most recently including the 2006 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist showcase, the 2005 Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, the 2004 Songwriters Hall of Fame New Writers Showcase, the NEMO Music Festival, GRAMMYFEST 2003, the BMI Acoustic Series, and The Atlantis Music Conference. Nadine has performed at many clubs and listening rooms across the country, including The Living Room (NYC), The Bluebird Café (Nashville), Club Passim (Boston), the Tin Angel (Philadelphia), the Iota Club (DC), and Eddie’s Attic (Atlanta), among others.
Nadine has also gained the attention of radio and television, including NPR’s All Songs Considered, which included her song, Thinking About You, on their Open Mic program; WFUV Radio in New York, where City Folk Sunday Breakfast host John Platt spotlighted Nadine as part of his ‘New Voices from New York for the New Year’ series to kick off 2005; and ABC News Now and NBC News, which recently featured Nadine and the volunteer work she does performing in healthcare facilities with NYC-based charity Musicians on Call (musiciansoncall.org).
Look for more touring for Nadine in 2007 as she continues to celebrate her new LIVE CD and brings her soulful acoustic jazz-infused sound to clubs and colleges through the US. More info and tour dates at nadineg.com.

Pitch-perfect, pristine in its harmonizing, tonally sound — this could scarcely be a more technically solid vocal effort.” (4 out of 5 stars)

Her set-closer, “Starry Night”, added some blues grit to her sound, and built to a startlingly intense ending.”

It must be all that hype about jazz-pop chanteuse Nadine Goellner. Goellner has performed it all, from jazz, soul, house and pop, in front of a band and solo. For her next trick, this New Yorker has blended these styles together for a delectable musical confection. Now this outstanding performer is blowing crowds away on a regular basis in NYC, and the fan base is spreading.”
Nadine primarily performs her own original music, while occasionally incorporating new arrangments of jazz standards into her shows. A typical one set show is anywhere from 45 to 75 mins, depending on venue's request. Solo or with a band, Nadine can perform up to three 45 minute sets per night.
