Her new album (due this summer) was recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Tom Schick (Wilco, Iron & Wine, Rufus Wainwright) and multi-instrumentalist Joe Adamik (Iron & Wine, Califone), at Wilco’s studio in Chicago, after crowdfunding one of the top music campaigns in IndieGoGo's history.
The songwriting on the new album comes from a place of emotional maturity, revelation, and unapologetic authenticity. Naomi's songs are both intimate and universal, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell’s vulnerable lyricism.
The mournfully political "Machine Age," is emblematic of the album: a dramatic ride through a wide range of experience. From classical operatic training, through independent singer songwriter earnestness, then major label pop production, and finally beyond all those influences. The single, and the album it heralds, leave an undeniable imprint when the music ends.
