Laneway Singapore 2017NAO

Future-soul singer and songwriter NAO is on track to make it big. Her killer single, ‘So Good’ and debut EP of the same name were standouts of 2014. The title track made the BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra national playlists in the United Kingdom. This was followed by a second EP, February 15 (II MMXV) in May 2015, receiving the “Best New Music” tag from Pitchfork Media.

In 2015, NAO appeared on Disclosure’s Caracal on the track ‘Superego’, as well as performed for Glastonbury Festival and was named a nominee for best newcomer at the 2015 MOBO Awards. This year, the UK artist made a huge impact with her debut full-length, For All We Know, an R&B-tinged release that got people on both sides of the Atlantic talking.

NAO’s sound has been described as soul combined with electronic music, funk and R&B. She has coined the term ‘wonky funk’ to describe her music style.

Her debut album For All We Know was released on 29 July 2016.
