Bio

How did a young woman from the small beach side community of Manly, Sydney Australia end up as a singer living in New York City?

There was never any doubt in Nadia Ackerman’s mind about where she was headed. It all came down to how was she going to get there.

Nadia began singing at the age of three in her crib. She would wake up her parents at 4am singing “ Don’t Cry For me Argentina” with perfect pitch and a lisp.

At age 15 Nadia’s love of song became more than a hobby. She announced her intention to become a professional singer. Her focus was strong, and her progress was rapid. In Australia, Nadia was featured with several different musical touring companies, including The Fabulous Blues Brothers Band, and The Stars Of The Future. She toured all of Australia and New Zealand and appeared on numerous TV broadcasts.

Nadia’s passion however lived with Jazz. Her love and the influence of jazz greats Nancy Wilson, Blossom Dearie, Carmen MacRae and Betty Carter were beginning to shape her future. She undertook the challenging path of a jazz vocalist and toured extensively while recording and releasing three CD’s internationally.

Then suddenly, about a year ago, early 2006ish she began to write songs, every day, clocking in at 9 in the morning and out at dinner time, stopping only to take Woodley to the park for his constitutional. She'd hurry his business as best she could and return to her work as quickly as she could.

The songs were not “jazz” but they spoke of and to her singing talent to such a degree she has now undertaken the much more daunting endeavor of performing her own material in some indefinable genre.

“It’s pop!” “It’s alternative!” “It’s jazzy alternative pop!” “It’s folky pop alternative !” “It’s a new jazz inflected alternative pop idiom heretofore never written or spoken of!”
It's Nadia!
