Nadia - Vocals
Nadia has loved music as long as she can remember and started learning to play classical guitar aged just 7! At 14 she began having vocal lessons at a local music academy, where she grew up in Deptford, this gave her the confidence to start writing my own lyrics and learning how to sing with confidence and technique. Her teacher was a fantastic soul singer, and was her inspiration to sing from the soul!
Nad's musical taste is vast, everything from Classical, Soul ,R&B, Motown, through to Rock. Vocal influences include Tina Turner, Dionne Warwick, Christina Aguilera , Jennifer Hudson, Ann Wilson (Heart) Beth Hart, Adele, Amy Winehouse and absolute idol is Stevie Nick's !
Her powerful soul/rock voice, and love of harmonies blend perfectly with the band.
Sean - Saxophone/Percussion
Sean is a stalwart on the musical scene having played in bands for over twenty years or so, including some stints in big bands. Sean has run New Street Band for the past 15 years, formerly known as Halfway Street but with a whole new band line up you get New Street - see what he did there?. In Sean's view the band is now at the top of it's game and providing top notch music for private parties, pubs and clubs. He also brings a mean coolbox packed with beers to rehearsals.
