Malaysian-born singer songwriter NADHIRA is back following her global travels to find inspiration with her second album – 12 SHADES!
A classically trained pianist, Nadhira has over the years moved in various directions including rock, blues, jazz, soul and R&B. These began to make their presence felt on her inaugural album “From Malaysia with Love” that was launched to critical acclaim in 2010. 12 Shades takes her infinitely matured skills and talents to new heights and presents her fans old and new alike an intriguing exploration of life, love and everything in between as seen through this songbird’s eyes.
Other tracks on the album saw her collaborate with Canadian rapper Vandal and Indonesian reggae ambassador Ras Muhamad as well which adds yet another dimension to this colourful album. One of the two Bahasa Malaysia tracks, “Sendiri,” is also of particular note as it was composed by Aldisya Latuihamallo – better known for his work producing with Indonesian Superstar Glenn Fredly. The remainder of the album is produced, mixed and mastered by Indonesian producer Wisnu “Wizzow” Prastowo who’s diverse body of work compliments Nadhira in so many ways and is what really sets 12 Shades apart from anything else like it in Malaysia.
Nadhira is back in the studio and is working on various collaborations and projects. As a diverse, talented and inspired artist, her next project will be as diverse as she is.
