Nadirah Shakoor is an American vocalist, best known for her work in Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band, which she joined in 1995, and is still touring with them as the featured female vocalist. "Nod To The Storyteller" is Nadirah's tribute to Jimmy Buffett, who for the last 13 years has featured her as part of his show. Prior to that she was the female lead singer of the hip-hop group Arrested Development, of which she was a member from 1993 until 1995. She was nominated for a Grammy Award for their second album "Zingalamaduni". Nadirah is also featured in Arrested Development's Unplugged DVD and CD. She has also toured and/or recorded with Madonna, Al Jarreau, Paula Abdul, Quincy Jones, Jasmine Guy, Howard Hewit and others.

Her debut CD "Soul Power" (Toshiba/EMI Japan) was produced by Speech, and her next two projects, "NadirahSongs" and "Obsessed With Peace Vol. I" were released independently. In 2000 she teamed up with her best friend, world-renowned producer Osunlade. Together, they have released several house-music songs on Osunlade’s Yoruba Records label that are quickly becoming classics of the genre.

On October 14, 2008, Nadirah released a new CD entitled "Nod to the Storyteller" on Jimmy Buffett's Mailboat Records label. The CD includes two songs written by Ms. Shakoor along with unique covers of songs written by Jimmy Buffett and several other artists.
