Live Music with Nola Adé

 
Nola Adé_Web.jpg

The sound of Afro-Soul singer-songwriter Nola Adé’s full-bodied vocal phrasing, soulful timbre, and eclectic style is one that is all her own. A diversity of musical flavors seeped into the musical consciousness of a young Ade; from the Nigerian Praise and Worship songs and Afrobeats of her parent’s homeland, the classic soul of Chicago radio, the Jazz of Ella and Sarah on rotation, to the constantly evolving popular music of today. Ade’s music and message to her eager fans is really about honoring the traditions of the past, being unafraid of the present, and unapologetically joining the past and present to creating a harmonious future.

Nashon Holloway is a little bit funk, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, a touch of R&B and a whole lot of soul.

NPR Music called her a "crisp, forceful" singer/songwriter, and with an authentic jazz backbone like hers, while there are nods to the golden eras of rock and soul lead by her heroes. Nashon’s music is truly for today, and for every kind of person.
