The last three years has seen NAO’s talents bloom. Her first release “So Good” came in 2014, and was the first indicator that here was a new and unique talent. From there Best New Music accolades came from Pitchfork for the tracks “Apple Cherry” and Inhale Exhale”, whilst she was featured in NME, The Guardian, Q and Elle. Her debut album “For All We Know” was a landmark record, her self-described “wonky-funk” fleshed out over 18 stunning tracks that drew critical acclaim from all quarters. Recognition came thick and fast with a nomination for Best Newcomer at 2015’s MOBO Awards and this year NAO was nominated for Best British Solo Artist at the Brit Awards.
More recently NAO has performed at Coachella, both her own amazing set and alongside Bon Iver and Mura Masa. She was also the undoubted highlight at Afropunk in London.
