One of our most shouted about emerging artists here at Nexus Music Blog is undoubtedly Nadia Sheikh. Nadia has not been short of praise in recent months, playing Isle of Wight Festival and committing herself to the creation of new content.

Anyway, praise aside, we managed to catch up with a rather busy Nadia for a rather unique Artist Selected Playlist. Be sure to take a look below and let us know your thoughts!

tracks off of the latter.
Politik – Coldplay
I think Coldplay are a brill band, I do have to say I’m fonder if
their old material rather than the new albums though. A Rush is
Blood to the head is such a well crafted LP. It’s got such a mood
to it. I’ve always had a soft spot for the opening track, so here
Local Boy In The Photograph – Stereophonics
I listen to Stereophonics a lot too, I think Kelly Jones has an
amazing and super heartfelt voice. I remember I was quite taken when
I found out the story about this song.
Rock n Roll Suicide – David Bowie
Another of my fave artists ever is David Bowie, The Rise and Fall of
Ziggy Stardust is an insane album and the last track is the perfect
