Taking Naomi into a new sonic direction for her first release for the year, “I Don’t Know” unveils Naomi’s deeply sensual vocals, defined by her lust for creative freedom.  Inspired by her own self reflection and wanting to bring a more honest, raw perspective of herself to the fans, this track takes the influence of a personal sentiment to bring listeners closer to the singer-songwriter’s world.

For those who are unfamiliar with Naomi, the UK vocalist and songwriter freshly debuted in 2019 after a number of appearances on stage singing for the likes of Laura Mvula and Lianne La Havas. She has the ability to effortlessly make records that cross boundaries and evoke a synergy between jazz, electronica, and R&B.

Since then, she has seen a steady rise in the alt pop scene and beyond. Her debut release “Enough” quickly solidified her image as a promising, young, up and coming artist in an increasingly competitive field. It soared straight onto the BBC Radio 1 playlist and received immense support from Clara Amfo, Ricky Melvin, and Jack Saunders. It has been a nonstop exhilarating ride since then, as she continues to receive great support from the fans who thoroughly indulge in her impressive vocal range and rich musical pallet. Her first few shows in London also showcase her prowess; she has performed live alongside Celeste and Rachael Chinouriri, sold out a host of her own headline dates, and saw her popularity crystallize into a new chapter as she charted into the new year.

Along with the release of her new offering, Naomi is also set to headline the upcoming live show @ The Social and showcase at The Great Escape. Expect more explosive releases from the stunning talent as the upcoming year will undoubtedly be filled with more surprises for her fans.
