"The Take Media"

"The first opener, Vancouverite Nadia von Hahn, set the bar high with her three-piece and lyrics, pumping stories of love/lust/infatuation. People were just beginning to arrive at the Magpie during her performance, making it possible for her sharp vocals to carry through and allowing her words to remain distinguishable." - The Take Media

Nadia von Hahn and the Boy-Toys

The fabulous Nadia von Hahn played at The Biltmore last week and I was finally able to catch her show!

It turned out to be pretty interesting when her theater/actor friends all showed up. Dance party and a kick line ensued.

Nadia has a new video out for her song This Holy Night - McAvoy.ca

"Chipped Hip"

No need for a glass, the bottle is fine
September 17, 2010

I’ve had a nice little run of Vancouver artists over the past week or so. In keeping with that trend, here’s Nadia von Hahn with her song “Love Maker.” I’ve always gotten a kick out of doo-wop throwbacks, and this one fits the bill, with its romantic lyrics, sugary melody and, of course, those magic changes (although you’re going to need to transpose this one into Bb to play along at home).

It comes from her album Wait and See What Happens, which is due out October 5. - Chipped Hip


"Explore Music"

"Nadia von Hahn’s style, which ranges from piano balladry to retro-pop, has drawn comparisons to that of Sarah Slean, Tori Amos, Regina Spektor and Feist..." - Explore Music


"106.9 FM Yukon"

"With a voice that's both ethereal and worldy, and a presence that keeps you transfixed, this girl writes music that's sexy, insightful, and addictive..."

- Jake Gulliver, (106.0 FM, Yukon) - 106.9 FM, Yukon


"North By East West Artist Spotlight"

"Wait And See What Happens, is a beautifully honest, and brutally emotionally debut. Songs like "This Holy Night" and "The One I Want" are dripping with passionate melancholy that draw you right into her sentiments. Nadia also shows off her sassy nature and musical theater influences in "Love Maker". With a band name like Nadia Von Hahn and the Boy Toys, and Madonna/burlesque inspired outfits, Nadia is more than just another delicate singer/songwriter in a pretty dress...." - North By East West


"Kingston Music Reviews"

"Nadia's vocal performance reigns supreme..." - Kingston Music Reviews


"The Dependent Feature"

"Her debut EP 'Wait And See What Happens', is a combination of catchy retro-pop and soulful ballads that burst with emotion... She has a voice that is just as comfortable roaring like an alt-rock lioness as it does purring like a pinup girl from a bygone age. Her observations are sharp, her lyrics are occasionally cheeky, and every one of her songs overflows with a raw honesty so unexpected and fierce, that you have no choice but to listen again and again." - The Dependent (thedependent.ca)

"Trees Organic Cafe"

"Nadia is a treat to see in performance. Her voice draws you in with its purity. You get the feeling she's lived the words she's singing. Her keyboard playing is intricate, like she's casting a spell or weaving something fine. A beautiful soul, and she's not afraid to share it." - John Pippus


"London Free Press Review"

"Her voice morphs between doo-wop siren to tender chanteuse on the EP, Wait And See What Happens. It would be knee-jerk to compare her to other ivory-twinkling ladies, but von Hahn has a bit of a ’70s-derived soprano that recalls the innocence of early Joni Mitchell..." - London Free Press


"June Jazz Cellar Review"

"...an elgant songbird with a strong yet angelic voice, while poised over the baby grand, giving the room an ambience of a Titanic soundtrack. She even threw in a little French number at the end..." - Tall Poppy Presents

"Her debut EP 'Wait And See What Happens', is a combination of catchy retro-pop and soulful ballads that burst with emotion... She has a voice that is just as comfortable roaring like an alt-rock lioness as it does purring like a pinup girl from a bygone age.

Originally from Quesnel, BC, Nadia von Hahn has gone from high school eccentric, to musical theater maniac, and finally, a powerhouse songstress, all in a few short years. After packing her bags, and cutting off her teenaged-dreadlocks, this small town girl graduated as class Valedictorian from The Canadian College of Performing Arts, in Victoria. There she received a scholarship from the Canadian Heritage Arts Society, for her work in classical voice, acting, and musical theater. A diverse performer, Nadia has taken her layered artistic background and infused her own songwriting with playful drama, wistful sincerity, and stubborn hope.

Described as “cinematic”, and “an ethereal powerhouse”, this young performer is poised at the beginning of an exciting career. From dramatic piano balladry to cheeky retro-pop, her distinct luxurious vocals and empathetic lyrics are a gracious hostess to a wide audience. Her relentlessly hummable melodies, and courageously sensitive sound have drawn comparisons to Sarah Slean, Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, and even Feist . Her unique fusion of pop, folk, and theatrical sensibilities have combined to create a style that is both entirely current, and completely timeless.

Nadia released her debut EP October 5th 2010. "Wait And See What Happens" was produced by Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas), and recorded at FaderMaster Studios in Vancouver, BC. She recently completed a Canadian national tour and will be showcasing at Canadian Music Week March 2011.
