Nadine Khouri

Performed in Sofar London

Nadine Khouri is a British-Lebanese musician and songwriter. Influenced by dream-pop, film soundtracks and spoken word poetry, her sound has been described as a “music born of perennial outsider-status.” Noted by John Parish (PJ Harvey) for her voice, Khouri was invited to sing on a track on his Screenplay LP and subsequently recorded her first album with the veteran producer in his hometown of Bristol. The resulting ‘The Salted Air’ is a haunting and atmospheric collection of poetic meditations on loss and transformation. The album cemented Khouri’s one-to-watch status; it was hailed by MOJO as “A thing of dark possessed beauty” in their four-star album review, celebrated by Q (Critics Choice) and selected as one of Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year (#33). Acclaimed music photographer Steve Gullick (Nirvana, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) shot Khouri’s press photos and cover art. He also directed the video for “You Got A Fire” In the past few years, Khouri has performed in some of Europe’s most prestigious venues (Botanique, Paradiso, Royal Festival Hall) and has been invited to share the stage with the likes of Low, Aldous Harding, This is the Kit, Josh T. Pearson, Howe Gelb and many more. Her EP ‘A New Dawn’ was recorded and self-produced in between heavy touring commitments and released in late 2018, alongside full-band dates in the UK and solo dates supporting Low on their ‘Double Negative’ tour in Europe. Khouri recently contributed vocals to acclaimed albums by Adrian Crowley and John Murry, both released in 2021. Her forthcoming album was recorded in July 2021 at Hoxa Studios in London.
