Album Notes
Some artists defy classification.
Detroit’s revolutionary soul man, Nadir, rebels against it.

His solo debut Distorted Soul 2.0 was crowned “Best Funk Album of the Year” by and earned a Detroit Music Award for “Outstanding Urban Funk/Hip-Hop Recording”, after international spins on Urban A/C, Rock, Urban Contemporary and even Smooth Jazz radio.

Slave: The Remixtape, which offers fourteen very different remixes of Nadir’s award-winning composition “Slave” (and six additional tracks online) - in Crunk, Funk, Hip-hop, Rock, Funky House, Techno styles and more - was a #5 Breakout track on Billboard’s Club Play chart, and took home a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Electronic Dance Recording.

On Nadir’s new album, Workin’ For The Man, revolutionary socio-political commentary collides with explosive funk and hip hop. Nadir describes the album as a “political dance record” designed to make you dance and think at the same time.

Witnesses can catch Nadir skanking funk guitar on tour in the U.S., Canada or Europe, or rocking an acoustic in front of the White House demanding that George Bush step down. His funk-rock jam band, Distorted Soul, rips through Nadir’s diverse originals, then fires off hard rocking versions of soul classics like “Love TKO” or reincarnates rock anthems like “Life in the Fast Lane” as dance floor friendly funk burners.

Topping it all off is his current stint with MTV as the Choose or Lose 2008 correspondent to the state of Michigan, which lasts until the presidential election in November. (Catch his reports at

“When you get right down to it,” Nadir explains, “I’m all about telling stories, singing songs and making music that moves people - spiritually, emotionally, physically, politically, whatever. Don’t just sit there! Do something!”

This Southern-bred singer-songwriter and his stalwart band play with an aplomb that could raise the corpses of Marley and Hendrix. No $h!t To label them simply neo-soul would be downright reductive.” Metro Times, Detroit”

Nadir’s 2008 album Workin’ For The Man is a high powered political barn burner, packed with revolutionary funk, soul, rock, hip hop and house. Bob Davis of says, “Imagine if you could listen to an album that sounded like it was James Brown + Gil Scott-Heron + Public Enemy?” And… “This is clearly one of the best new releases of 2008 and something that is truly worthy of your attention at this time.”

“Nadir is a revolutionary artist. Nadir has a revolutionary agenda. Nadir thinks that it is ok to HAVE FUN and THINK. Nadir’s new album Workin’ for the Man makes you do both.”
