Naomi – ‘Take Back the Power’ video out now, EP to follow

In the internet age, the sheer number of musicians out there able to ply their trade and build their fanbase online makes this perhaps the music industry the toughest it’s ever been. However, if you were to come up with a formula for success, songwriter Naomi could be a great template.

Talented, check. Young, check. Fresh, check. Attractive, check. In addition to this, her song writing is so strong that a song she wrote for her GCSE ended up getting her featured on ITV’s Daybreak. This in turn get the attention of a number of top producers, all of whom are helping her create songs which are winning praise from national press and radio of all kinds.

It all makes for an exciting start to a career with real promise. Her pop mixes the upbeat, pacey catchiness of Taylor Swift with the melancholy edge of Lorde. It’s a difficult balance to strike, but soars when those choruses hit. New EP ‘Take Back the Power’ is out April 22nd – get on board early and be smug that you did.

Naomi – ‘Rivers Run’ video leads the way for new EP

Thanks to the likes of Adele, Lorde and others of that ilk, there seems to have been a real rise in proper, well written pop music recent years. Not pop music where you get the feeling that teenage girls have just discovered how to work a rhyming couplet (hello Carly Rae Jepson), but real, emotional music with quality that can reach a large audience.

The latest artist to fit that mould is the excellent Naomi. At just 19, she is already creating quite the buzz on a national level, and judging by the track above it’s not hard to see why. Featured by papers such as The Guardian, Independent, Huffington Post and many many more, she has also caught the eye/ear of TV and radio producers.

This has resulted in a huge amount of anticipation for new EP ‘Take Back the Power’. Released April 22nd, the collection looks set to continue Naomi’s speedy rise with a real statement of intent.
