8. Nadia Reid – Rise & Fall (Video + Interview)

Nadia Reid, Rise And Fall from her album Letters I Wrote And Never Sent. Filmed and edited by Mark Marchand (M3 Media)

1. Whats new, Nadia, since your EP launch? Things going super for you?
Things are going very well, thanks. We had an epic EP launch here in Christchurch and the rest of the tour (Dunedin, Wellington, Auckland) was fantastic. 

2. We heard news you’re moving to Auckland? Is that true? want to talk about that?
It’s true! The time has come to leave this beautiful city… I leave for Auckland on the 21st January to start working on my album due for release late 2012. 
3. We loved your video of Rise And Fall. Whats the song about? What inspired it?
I wrote the song back in 2008 while I was still at high school. It’s a song about love. Falling out of it [love] and moving on. Recently the song featured in ‘When A City Falls’ a film by Gerard Smythe. A story about the Christchurch earthquakes. It fits really well with the themes of the film. Loss and moving forward. 

4. Mark’s a good film guy isn’t he? Where did you shoot it?
A fantastic film guy! So talented! (Watch out world)… we shot the video on his porch on Slater Street

5. How have you enjoyed being part of Majestic Collective arts community?
From the moment I stepped into Majestic I felt so supported and welcomed into the artist community. Majestic is brimming with faith, talent, and healthy passion! It has been so good for my spirit to be immersed in that atmosphere!

6. Final words? Anything smart to leave behind with us?
Keep doing what you’re all doing, Majestic cats! The future is bright. Yes!
