Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in London, Nefer (his adopted name taken from the Egyptian word for ‘the beautiful one’ inspired by his deep interest in 18th dynasty Ancient Egypt) has loved music for as long as he can remember, listening to artists like Alma Cogan, Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney as a child before discovering the music of Dionne Warwick, Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin as a teenager.

Nefer worked in record shops, wrote for different fan magazines and spent years working behind the scenes always secretly hoping that his voice might be heard and he would be ‘discovered’. He recorded demos, wrote songs and occasionally performed during a stay in the U.S. in cities like New York and Los Angeles.

Returning to London in 2009, Nefer began working in 2010 on his first CD "I Used To Rule The World..." (inspired by the Coldplay hit "Viva La Vida," which has been Nefer-ized for the CD), out now on i-Tunes and Amazon, with Nefer's readings of "Sitting In The Park" (the 1964 soul classic), The Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody," Elton John's "Your Song" and more, all given Nefer's soulful vocal stamp.

With great artists like Roberta Flack, Marlena Shaw and Jean Carne among his supporters, Nefer's aim is to appeal to the generations that love the music of Sade, Norah Jones, Mose Allison and of course, Nina Simone, his primary musical mentor to whom he pays tribute during live shows.

His music is the kind he'd like to hear in Starbucks, on a long distance flight...and his dreams are to perform at the Hollywood Bowl, The Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Hall - in no particular order! Go, Nefer, go!
