Don’t miss Marissa Nadler in Concert at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival on Saturday, June 15

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- Over the course of nearly 20 tireless years of writing, recording, and touring, Marissa Nadler has amassed one of the most singular catalogs in contemporary music. Her work glides between delicate folk, windswept Americana, doom metal-adjacent darkness, meditative ambient music, and fearlessly experimental sounds, all anchored in her unmistakable singing voice and finger-style guitar. You can catch her live in concert at the New Jersey International Film Festival on Saturday, June 15, 2024 at 7:00pm.

Shortly after finishing her Masters degree at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Nadler released her first proper full-length album, the ethereal Ballads of Living and Dying, in 2004. Though she was initially associated with the indie-folk movement, Nadler soon distinguished herself with her willingness to go darker and more personal, writing songs that felt deeply intimate with solitude and heartbreak while still retaining an otherworldly sheen. If she was born a century earlier, it’s not a stretch to imagine that her vast talents would be mistaken for conjured magic.

After a decade of releasing records with various labels and on her own, Nadler joined forces with Sacred Bones Records and Bella Union for 2014’s seismic July. That record marked a kind of reset in Nadler’s career, and the sounds she explored there served as a jumping off point for subsequent modern classics like For My Crimes and her collaboration with Stephen Brodsky, Droneflower — both of which she created the cover art for.

Tickets are $25 and available for purchase online.  The concert will take place in Voorhees Hall #105/Rutgers University (71 Hamilton Street) in New Brunswick, New Jersey. NOTE: the concert is not available via video on demand, the concert is in-person only.

"I hope that you’re all doing well in this scorching late spring," said Nadler.  "I have got a Jersey concert coming up to chill your bones.  I hope y’all can make it and I am excited to play and sing for you. My record July just turned 10 (and my debut album Ballads of Living and Dying turns 20 years old this year) so I’ll be playing songs from July for sure, as well as some truly deep cuts. Also, there will be ambient explorations, songs from my new records like Path of the Clouds (and Wrath), For My Crimes, Strangers, and a few brand-new songs from my upcoming in the works album as well! I’m truly looking forward to making a dreamy night of music for you."

The Path of the Clouds is Nadler’s ninth solo album, and it feels like yet another significant evolution. Two decades into a storied career, there’s still an untapped reservoir of thrilling musical ideas and stirring emotions lurking in her endlessly creative mind.

The New Jersey International Film Festival is very proud that acclaimed singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler will be closing the festival with a solo concert on Saturday.
