Effortless electronic soul...

A graduate of Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Nao is a professional music.

Working with artists such as Jarvis Cocker, Pulp and Kwabs, the rising singer feels ready to take her first steps as a solo artist.

Hooking up with producer John Calvert at his Hackney studio, the pair have been crafting strange, enticing new tracks.

Matching left field electronics - think the fractured sounds of Burial or the ambitious pop of SBTRKT - with Nao's deeply soulful vocals, the results are striking.

With a new EP on the way, Nao has posted 'Back Porch' online. Check it out now.

Nao is set to play a solo show with Billie Black at Electrowerkz in London on July 15th. Tickets.
