Nadine Furer is a singer-songwriter and graphic designer, currently working on her own artist project NADINE, alongside collaborations with other artists and producers. With degrees both in songwriting and visual arts, sound and vision are inextricably linked for Nadine. “I always try to bring multiple dimensions to my music,” she says. “Images are, for me, a natural part of the process.”
Nadine began performing her own songs at the age of six, living in the flat above her parents’ shoe store in the Emmental region of Switzerland. She moved to London in 2011 to study at ICMP and became a fixture on the city’s gigging scene, playing at venues such as The Bedford, Hoxton Underbelly, and The Regal Room.
Her debut EP Spring Will Come was released in December 2013, and soon climbed up the singer-songwriter charts on iTunes, with lead single receiving a warm reception on BBC London Introducing. While writing and producing new material, Nadine played in Swiss venues such as Salzhaus Winterthur, Scala Wetzikon, Musigbistrot Bern, Nordportal and Royal in Baden, supporting established Swiss artists Luca Little and James Gruntz. Her second EP Exile was released in March 2015 and its single ‘This Isn’t Love’ was played on BBC London and BBC 2 as well as other independent radio stations.
While working on her next release, Nadine enjoys teaching songwriting at the ICMP and ICMP Online. She continues to play regularly in the UK and Switzerland. Her collaboration with film score composer Dave Holden, ‘Take Me Away’, was recently featured in an advertising campaign for Mazda cars.
