About Nao

Nao is a singer, songwriter and music producer from East London. After some time as a session singer and music teacher in her late teens and early twenties Nao began writing her own music in 2014. The results were instant, with a third place finish in the BBC Sound Poll and an arts-council-funded tour with Little Dragon the following year. Her first album 'For All We Know' saw Nao receive a Brit nomination as Best Female and a MOBO nomination for Best RnB Album. After touring across the globe for 2 years (including shows at Shepherds Bush Empire, LA Roxy and Brooklyn Steel) and picking up features with Mura Masa, Disclosure and Stormzy, Nao then released her second album 'Saturn' to rapturous critical acclaim in 2018, picking up a Mercury Nomination for the album this year. As Nao's profile as a musician has grown, so has her voice as a black British woman. After being asked to speak at Oxford University last year during Black History month, Nao then featured as a panellist and speaker at Elle Weekender and Blackgirlfest. In October this year she will also address the Cambridge University Student Union.
