You’re Not Going Anywhere Before You Hear Nadia Vaeh’s New Track ‘Never Leave the Basement’

A native of Atlanta, Nadia Vaeh is a multi-talented survivor who has done much with her life. She’s a songwriter, a singer, and a model, and has deep roots in the creative universe where she continues to showcase her talents with new music and music videos.  Ever since she was two years old, Nadia has been in love with music and singing. While still in middle school, her parents placed her in a traveling choir group, where her passion for music only grew. Tragedy struck her life when Nadia lost her mother to suicide when she was only 17. After this, Nadia left music, and fell down a dark path. However, her resilience and undeniable talent were weapons in her fight back to return to music, and she’s ready to take the world by storm.

The cheery pop of ‘Never Leave The Basement’ is just in time for summer, with the upbeat music acting as the ultimate mirage to this song. Behind the music is a story about a girl who has the mindset of wanting to go out and do something adventurous when social anxiety kicks in. It’s a head-first dive into the world of social media and the negative beauty pressures that come with it. Thoughtful lyrics help convey this message, while Nadia’s vocals cling to every last note and melody. With 84,000 plays on Spotify so far, ‘Never Leave The Basement’ is already shaping up to be a massive summer hit.

The clip for ‘Never Leave The Basement’ sees us take a trip through time as we visit the last six decades. The ‘Never Leave The Basement’ video will be benefiting the Andrew Kukes Foundation for Social Anxiety, and starts with Nadia looking cosy in her bed as she tunes her guitar and strums out the first chords of the song. From there, our first stop is the 50s, with Nadia as a housewife with big rollers in her hair and bold red lipstick. Then we go to the remaining decades with fashion statements from each one: crocheted tops, rollerblades, grunge flannels, and classic butterfly clips. Inspired by the hit TV show Wanda-Vision, director Evan Blum made sure to capture every decade with perfection. It’s a mega blast from the past, and we can’t wait to see what Nadia does next.
