In today’s overtly sexual and over-produced music market, Nadine Sutherland makes a deliberate effort to portray a sense of style and sophistication. She is a talented female singer, who has been described as “capable, sexy and hauntingly beautiful, with uncompromising flair and intelligence”. Her roots are embedded in the very heart of Jamaican culture. Although she has already accomplished so much in her life, Nadine has no intention of slowing down.
