Creative people are always being asked about their process. For most, the replies share common themes of inner turmoil and self-inflicted torture. There are a select few, however, who are unburdened by such constraints. And singer/songwriter Nadia Ackerman is one of them.

‘Songs just happen to me,’ she says. ‘I can be doing anything and I’ll be hit with one. They stick to me until I can sit down at the piano and download them. And when they come out, they’re fully formed – words, tunes, arrangements, everything.’

It’s an enviable talent to have and it leads to prolific music making – earlier this year Nadia released her debut album The Circus is Back in Town, and she’s got two more in the pipeline.

As well as writing her own music, Nadia is an in-demand backing vocalist. She recently performed with Lady GaGa, Sting, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Shirley Bassey and is the voice behind the global UPS ‘That’s logistics’ advertising campaign.

    Is Nadia the one that sang the commercial playing the ‘grim reaper’ that turns into a cigarette girl?
