Nao is a British singer-songwriter from East London who studied vocal jazz at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. Her sound has been described as neo-soul mixed with electronic, and alternative R & B.
It was only last year NAO started to put her music online and it wasn’t long before she was discovered. Zane Lowe picked ‘So Good’ as his Next Hype record and it swiftly rose to #1 on The Hype Machine. Annie Mac is another supporter, making ‘Zillionaire’ her Hottest Record and, more recently ‘Bad Blood’ became her Tune of the Week.
As well as a MOBO nomination for Best Newcomer and coming third in the BBC Sound of 2016 poll, NAO also features on the Spotify Spotlight UK, Google Play and Apple Music artists for 2016 lists.
