St. Louis, Missouri: Population 340,000, neither east nor west nor north nor south, a crossroads for rivers, a maze of Roosevelt-era brick buildings, which once housed newspapers, juke joints, hotels, homes, and still does - a city with American music seeping from the cracks. Here, on the 4th floor of a old factory building, a group of musicians have built a studio from scratch to make new music - acoustic music, electric music, hybrid music - music which remembers what rock n' roll once meant.
Formed in 1996, Nadine is Steve Rauner (guitars, keyboards), Adam Reichmann (lead vocals, guitar), Todd Schnitzer (drums, keyboards), and Anne Tkach (bass). Reichmann and Schnitzer have made music together for ten years, emerging from the heady days of St. Louis's alt-country scene to join kindred spirits Rauner (formerly of Wagon) and Tkach (Hazeldine). Together they have found a voice that reflects their love of honest, unpretentious pop music and studio experimentation.
