NAO’s debut album “For All We Know” will be released 29th July and is set to be one of the defining records of 2016. “For All We Know” is a transcendent set of 18 songs. Woozy, spacey funk, shot through with her effortless breath-taking toplines, part neo-soul, part UK bass, part funk rock - all at a sensual, stepping R&B pace.
NAO starting writing songs in her mid-twenties after a few years teaching school kids to sing and doing backing vocal gigs for the likes of Pulp and Kwabs. She took the brave step to put her song writing to the test in 2014 with her debut ‘February 15’ EP. She has gone on to play UK national TV show Later…with Jools Holland, featured on the cover of The Guardian and made it to Glastonbury’s major Park Stage.
She grew up in South Woodford, East London, listening to gospel in her local Evangelical church, her brother’s jungle UK Garage, her sister’s 90s and 00s R&B – going on study at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama. When she took the brave step to put her own songs down - inspired by Little Dragon - the ideas flowed
“For All We Know” is the record of a one-of-a-kind artist destined for greatness. A record you can dip your head into for a 360-degree spectrum of kaleidoscopic digi-funk
