Nadia Ackerman

Nadia Ackerman is a singer/songwriter and illustrator and the artistic force behind DUMBO’s Natchie Art at 145 Front Street. Seventeen years ago, Nadia decided to pack her suitcase and move from her native Sydney, Australia to New York City to pursue her dream of being a jazz singer in the big apple. Five pop albums, appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, SNL and Good Morning America, and performances with music industry greats including Sting, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Billy Joel later…she has crammed a lot into her career as a singer. In 2012, Nadia began to see her songs as images, and felt an overwhelming desire to draw her music. Out of this desire was born “Natchie” (from the nickname her dad gave to her when she was 13). At Natchie Art, Nadia draws each of her songs; each piece of art comes with lyrics and a free download code to own the song. In addition to her first retail store in DUMBO, she hosts the radio show “Natchie Night Fly” on bbox radio and continues to sing, write and perform. - See more at: NATCHIE
