Nadia Kamrath | Seven Steps Behind You Review
By Bea Willis
Nadia Kamrath is an indie-folk singer/songwriter that tells stories about love in its most fragile states through her music. Her vulnerable lyrics are set to soft indie pop and folk musical settings with dreamy hooks and whimsical piano and keyboards. Kamrath describes her style: “I write soft and vulnerable indie-pop songs filled with dreamy hooks and melodies. I love telling stories about my experiences and interpretations of love in its most fragile state. I hope you enjoy listening to my songs as much as I enjoyed creating them.” Her latest exploration is titled “Seven Steps Behind You.”
“Seven Steps Behind You” is a contemplative, emotionally layered song about your deepest, darkest fears of hoping your love is true and mutual. Kamrath’s vocal delivery is dry and whispy as she phenomenally brings her dynamic character to life and takes her through the song’s emotions. Her tone and delivery make you feel she feels like the character. The many layers of piano, keyboard, string sounds, percussion, and guitar surge with the growth drama of the character while still being supportive and musical.
Kamrath’s “Seven Steps Behind You” shows an artist that is wise beyond her years in lyric writing, and her dreamy soundscapes do a fine job of capturing your imagination and attention. “Seven Steps Behind You” is an excellent song marked by a memorable melody and stunning lyric writing. Kamrath is on her way to being one of the best indie artists you never knew you needed to discover.

About the author
With an unwavering passion for music that began at the tender age of five, I embarked on a journey of self-expression through the piano, later expanding my repertoire to the guitar and the art of singing. As a seasoned performer in cozy coffee shops and harmonious choir ensembles, I've immersed myself in the diverse tapestry of musical genres, seeking to uncover the intricate qualities that strike a chord within our souls.
Beyond my personal experiences, my journalistic pursuits have led me to explore the stories and inspirations behind the melodies we hold dear. As a music journalist, I aim to delve into the heart of each composition, shedding light on the creative minds that have shaped the soundscape of our lives.
In my downtime, you can find me serenading my loyal canine companion with heartfelt tunes on the guitar or indulging in retail therapy to enhance my ever-growing wardrobe. Songwriting holds a special place in my heart, and I yearn for the day when I can share my creative talents with the world. Until then, my passion for uncovering the emotional power within music continues to drive my insightful reviews and analyses, as I journey through the rich landscape of melodies that move us.
