All out talent Nadim Azzam brings his passion as a lyricist, MC, guitarist, and soul singer to the Rackham Stage backed by funk-pop trio Jacob LaChance (saxophone), Chris Robbins (drums), and Sam Collins (bass). At 21, this young Ann Arborite wowed The Grove for two years with his heartfelt, rap-laced solo acoustic set, and has been amassing a national following in love with his rapidfire hip-hop delivery fused with the sincerity of a 50’s lovesong balladeer. His original music is a hip-hop, alt rock, jazz fusion that uplifts and inspires, bringing that feel-good, smile worthy element found in Ed Sheeran, Michael Franti, and G Love & The Special Sauce. His powerful debut EP Here’s to Changes Vol. 1 already landed him a nationwide campus tour with Matisyahu. You can catch him playing steady dates locally with his trio. See and hear for yourself why this is one of Ann Arbor’s most exciting and unique young musicians.
