17 artists to watch in 2017: Nao

Nao is everything the game’s been missing. I can’t express how much I vibe with the East London songstress. Her debut EP, So Good, dropped in 2014 with features from A.K. Paul and Abhi//Dijon (both of whom should be on your radar). Since then, NAO has been consistently releasing incredible music, including the EP, February 15, and her debut album, For All We Know. We had the pleasure of seeing her live this past year at the Observatory OC alongside Mura Masa and bonzai and it was easily one of the top 3 live shows we attended in 2016. Her voice is captivating and rare. Flowing atop funky, electro-r&b beats, NAO blends genres with ease. We’d be surprised if you haven’t heard of her by now, but definitely count on her to make waves in 2017. @this_nao
