Nadia Vaeh Drops Alt-Pop Christmas Single “Holidazed & Confused”

Rising Songwriter Nadia Vaeh Gets Introspective with New Track for Holiday Season

(Los Angeles, California)

Los Angeles, CA based alt-pop artist Nadia Vaeh has released a stunning new holiday single, “Holidazed & Confused.” Taking a non-traditional approach to Christmas music, the track features a strong energetic beat and solid pop vocals with layered harmonies.

The song’s dark- wave sound is filled with haunting echoes that contrast emotive lyrics and a reflective outlook. Textured with familiar Christmas elements such as sleigh bells and single piano notes, Vaeh takes a pop perspective on the classic holiday sound.

“Holidazed & Confused” is now available to stream and download on digital music platforms worldwide.

Based around the idea of missing someone who might not be around anymore, Vaeh wanted to write a song that expresses the confused feelings of grief during the holiday season.

“It can be a really difficult time of year. Amidst the stillness, it can bring reminders that some of those loved ones are no longer with us in the physical realm. I wrote this song with my mom in mind. She was a little light force year-round and brought joy to so many. Her presence is always missed, but especially around this time of year when I have more time to reminisce.”

Produced by Dion Shaw and Tyler Spratt, and mixed and mastered by Tyler Spratt and Paris Minzer, “Holidazed & Confused” is one of Vaeh’s most personal singles yet. The song is a reflection on how the holidays can be a wonderful time of year, but also a time to reminisce about those lost.

“Resilience is our greatest superpower as humankind and I think my music allows me to stand in that power and help inspire others to do the same and pull the beauty out of their adversities and painful experiences.

About Nadia Vaeh

A native of Atlanta with an American mother and a Lebanese father, Nadia Vaeh found her way into artistry through modeling and joining a local Atlanta circus. She started singing in their productions, but this was not the beginning of her artistic roots.

Nadia’s love of music and singing began at the age of two, and was nurtured by her parents by placing her into a traveling youth-choir. Her mother was a poet and passed on her love of words, which later lent to fuel her as a lyricist. Nadia lost her mom to suicide at the age of 17, which shifted the course of the young artist.

Consequently, Nadia dismantled her high-school band and strayed from songwriting and singing for years. After this tragic loss, she states that she went down a path of self-sabotage and destruction and used relationships and partying to ignore her pain. When she finally decided to begin again with artistry, she was a shell of a person and looking to anyone and anything for answers to deal with her heartbreak. “I made a lot of missteps when I first began my career and had to learn a lot of things the hard way.”

With her endless resilience, she has grown into a performer, has had her music recently played on international radio, and is looking forward to sharing more of her music here in the US and around the world.

She has written well over 100 songs born from the things she’s experienced - to her, songwriting is not only personally healing, but is also a platform to help others heal and make waves with social matters. Having written in several genres, her fascination lies with pop.“You can tell a story and create even more movement with that story through catchy lyrics and melodies.”
