Nadia Ackerman is a singer/songwriter and an illustrator. She hails from the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia. Her parents of Afrikaans descent moved to Australia in the 1970’s.

17 years ago Nadia decided to pack her suitcase and move to NewYork City to pursue her dream of being a jazz singer in the big apple. She knew nobody but that didn’t stop her. 5 pop albums later, performances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, SNL and Good Morning America, Sharing the stage with music industries greats including Sting, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Billy Joel to name a few...

Gracing the stage of Carnegie Hall to Sub Culture and Joes Pub Nadia has crammed a lot into her career as a singer. She was also the singing voice for the UPS International Campaign “That’s Logistics” That played for 3 years around the world on Television, Radio, and in Movie Theaters.

In 2012 Nadia started seeing her songs as images and felt an overwhelming desire to draw her music. Having not created anything visually artistic since high school she thought this was quite an ambitious endeavor to to take on. Being driven by her heart she created “Natchie” (the nickname her dad gave to her when she was 13)

Each piece of art comes with lyrics and a free download code to own the song. Today Nadia has her first retail store in Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York City and is currently working on her next album "Long Wave Radio" due for release Fall 2016.

Nadia sits somewhere between the breezy organic acoustic folk of Yael Naim (“Live Again”) and the disjointed jazz-pop of Regina Spektor (“Lighthouse”).
— Jon O'Brien - All Music
Nadia nails the senses with a vast sea of beauty and outdoor appeal every way imaginable.
— Cyrus Rhodes - Indie Artists Alliance
Nadia’s music will remind you of Suzanne Vega, Tracy Chapman, Mary Black, Joan Osborne and Paula Cole. To be honest I can’t say enough about Ackerman’s appeal and overall sound.
— Mindy McCall - Skope Magazine
Nadia is cut from the same cloth as The Civil Wars, The Head and The Heart, Ingrid Michelson. I can also hear the slight Folk-Sadcore influence in there as well like a modern-day Janis Ian, Lorena McKennett, Sara McLaughlin or Alannah Myles. What I really like about Ackerman is there is no attempt to deliver what I call over the top pop. Cheezy
