Nadine Shah to host new Instagram Live interview series Payback

29 April 2020, 10:50 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Nadine Shah has announced a new Instagram Live interview series titled Payback, which will see her flip the tables to interview journalists, presenters and more.

Despite being in the middle of her new Kitchen Sink album campaign, Nadine Shah has decided to utilise some of her free time to host a new Instagram Live interview series titled Payback.

While most interviews are hosted by journalists, presenters, and sometimes by musicians themselves, Shah has decided to turn the tables and interview people who work in media as a musician.

She says of her forthcoming interview series and the idea behind it, "I’ve always found it a weird format, to be asked all these questions and talk about myself over and over. One sided conversations aren’t natural but I understand why they have to be the way they are. It’s often been the case over the years that me and whoever is interviewing will end up staying on in a pub and having drinks together long after the interview is concluded. I feel like once my part's done, it’s time to ask the questions back to them. Consequently I’ve made many good friends in music journalism on the back of these meetings."

The singer/songwriter adds, "I’m not interested in the famous musician interviews famous musician podcast, I find them boring and egotistical. The music journalists are the ones with all the truly properly nitty gritty stories!"
